Gems of 90s House Music Classics: Let There Be House

As we wrap up our series on 90s House Musics Classics with “Let There Be House,” it’s time to pay homage to a decade that truly defined house music for the masses. While I’ve been diligent in revisiting other iconic eras and genres in our extensive collection, the 90s house scene has been calling for a fresh take. And with this mix, I’m confident we’ve paid proper tribute to this game-changing decade.

First off, let’s clear the air regarding Onephatdeeva’s “Bad Habit” featuring Lisa Millett. Yes, the official release was in 2000, but the promo had been floating around since late ’99, making it a perfect fit for this compilation. If you’ve heard it in our “Get Up n’ Dance | Millennial House Classics v4,” that’s no accident—it’s a track so good it transcends decades as do many of these songs.

Now, let’s talk about some of the standout tracks. Beats International’s “Dub Be Good To Me” featuring Lindy Layton starts things off with its tantalizing blend of reggae-infused house, a Norman Cook (a.k.a.Fatboy Slim) touch that was groundbreaking for its time. Then we have Heavy D & The Boyz’s “Now That We Found Love,” remixed by the legendary David Morales. This song is a high-energy journey, an effervescent blend of rhythm and vocal prowess.

The Bucketheads’ “Got Myself Together” is an essential inclusion. The KenLou Mix provides a timeless vibe that remains as fresh today as it was back then. If you’re more into the emotional depth house can offer, Saundra Williams’ “I Want It, I Need It (Real Love)” with MK’s Real Dub will evoke that feeling of yearning and release, which is what house music, at its core, often aims to do.

Praxis featuring Kathy Brown rouses the dancefloor with “Turn Me Out,” a floor-filler with a melody you can’t escape. Kathy’s vocals in this Delorme UK Club Mix are a resonant call to the dance floor, inviting and relentless.


No 90s House Music Classics mix is complete without some Moby, and his “Move” in the Electro Mix is a nod to how versatile this decade was, blending elements of electronic music with classic house beats.

And let’s not forget the sugary sweetness of CJ Bolland’s “Sugar Is Sweeter,” revamped into a Drum n Bass Mix by none other than Armand Van Helden. This track embodies the adventurous spirit of the ’90s, where artists and DJs were unafraid to experiment, to blend genres and break down musical barriers.

Before we wrap up, it’s important to give a nod to our namesake track “Let There Be House” by Deskee, remixed by WestBam. This song not only encapsulates the ethos of this compilation but also serves as a credo for house music itself—bold, unapologetic, and utterly danceable.

As we close the chapter on this revisiting of 90s Music Classics, I hope it serves as a fitting soundtrack to your Thanksgiving festivities. I’ll be back to sprinkle some seasonal vibes your way, but for now, let the 90’s house vibes marinate in your soul.

Until the next time…ENJOY!
