Part 2 of the Ultimate 90’s House Music Classics picks up where the first one left off. Unsurprisingly, there are a ton of classic cuts most folks are familiar with like D-Mob and Cathy Dennis’ “C’mon and Get My Love,” C + C Music Factory’s “Gonna Make You Sweat (Everybody Dance Now),” Technotronic’s “Pump Up the Jam” and “Get Up,” Jomanda’s “Gotta Love For You,” and other massive tracks from Crystal Waters, Inner City, Lisette Melendez, Black Box and 2 in a Room.
However, it’s these long forgotten 80’s gems that have been sampled numerous times over the years that make my eyes water. Maurice’s “This Is Acid,” Royal House’s “Get Funky,” Double Dee’s “Found Love,” Steve “Silk” Hurley’s “Jack Your Body” are remembered for their infectious hooks and helped define a generation of House Music that was about to explode in the coming years.
I came across the long forgotten track of which I had the vinyl version “Jack To the Sound” by Hithouse, which took me way back. The song follows the path of M/A/R/R/S “Pump Up the Volume” from several years back with loops and familiar samples but was also a blend of Acid House that soon bled into the burgeoning Techno scene several years later. It’s a memorable track and is part of the definitive 80’s sound that broke out during the latter part of the decade. You’ll know it as soon as it hits your ears.
I’ve got one more from this four-year span of 1988 – 1991 and it’s a whopper! That’ll likely drop on Wednesday. After that, I plan on releasing these by two-year intervals once a month until we hit the end of the decade.
I hope everyone has a fantastic week. I’ll be back on in a couple of days. Until then…ENJOY!
