With the arrival of Volume 3, we conclude our vibrant journey through the ultimate 90s House music classics spanning from 1988 to 1991, and it’s nothing short of sensational!
This set presents the magic of Marshall Jefferson’s “Move Your Body (The House Music Anthem)” that rocked the charts anew in 2020, and Lisa Stansfield’s timeless “People Hold On,” whose Dirty Scoundrels remix ignited the club scene years later. They perfectly encapsulate the unique blend of creativity, innovation, and rhythm that defines the ultimate 90s House music classics.
In this anthology, the celebrated icons share space with underground gems, representing the House music scene’s multifaceted charm. From the erotic Acid House of Lil’ Louis’ “French Kiss” to Ralphi Rosario’s 80’s underground smash “You Used To Hold Me,” featuring the unforgettable monologue by Xavier Gold, these tracks remind us why the ultimate 90s House music classics continue to reverberate through contemporary dance floors. The first time I heard “French Kiss” was when I was cruising the Mining Company bar in Dallas and the DJ dropped this song. It completely blew my mind because it was not like anything else out at the time. The slow down in the middle with the female groans before slowly building back up into its throbbing beats was out of this world.
Who can resist Crystal Waters’ “Gypsy Woman,” with its memorable Basement Boy’s Strip To The Bone Mix, or the David Morales Classic Mix of Shawn Christopher’s “Another Sleepless Night”? Whether it’s Frankie Knuckles’ ethereal “The Whistle Song” or catchy one-offs like Right Said Fred’s “I’m Too Sexy,” these 90s House music classics offer something for every fan of the genre. I remember dancing the night away to Crystal Waters’ “Gypsy Woman” in my first visit to New York City. That song is forever etched in my memory.
The breadth and depth of the classics, from crossover hits to essential club tracks, are astonishing. Songs like Black Box’s “Everybody Everybody” and Inner City’s “Good Life (Magic Juan’s Remix)” not only set the dance floor on fire but continue to influence today’s musical panorama. These tracks have been tapped, flipped, and revered, testifying to the enduring power of the original ultimate 90s House music classics. There’s a story behind “Good Life” that I won’t recount here lest I get in trouble but it’s a worthy one.
My enthusiasm might shine through when discussing these remarkable dance cuts. It’s not just about the beats; it’s about the history, evolution, and how these classics resonate with today’s audience. The series might be coming to an end, but the story of House music and its incredible influence lives on.
Get ready for more as we plan to stagger releases in two-year sets over the coming months. We invite you to savor and appreciate the ultimate 90s House music classics, a timeless testament to the rhythm that never fades.
Until the next time…ENJOY!
