Recommendations for compilation CDs that cover maybe a certain genre or time and place if you have a good 'un.
called Acid House Anthems.
The early Chilled Ibiza albums were brilliant.
Grime 1 & 2 and Dubstep Allstars up to about Vol:6 for dubstep.
American Gigolo by Tiga is pretty much all you need for Electroclash.
So have them for now.
Hatcha disc. SO GOOD.
Hardcore - The Prodigy, Altern8, Acen, 4 Hero etc.
Mostly just 138 Trek and Neighborhood though tbf.
A disco compiliation from about 1980.
Escape Velocity: Routes from the Jungle (or something like that)
Superdiscount (modernish French disco/ house type stuff)
That LTJ Bukem one that eveyone used to have back in the mid 90's
The Kruder and Dorfmeister ones (if that counts as dance)
Ninja Tunes - Flexistentialism
MacroDub Selection Volume I
That had stull like Dirty Cash, Killer and (I wanna give you) Devotion. That was my post rave chill album back in the day.
If you have any room in your life for mind numbing happy hardcore then the Bonkerz series was about the best that came out.
There was a great Ramos and Supreme mix on a Battle of the DJ's thing. Anything that has Age of Stomp and the Terminator remix worked for me!
*cough cough* Enough of that
Creme Organization round up their impressive team of disco and house mutants for a fairly crucial look at some of their consistently awesome output from the end of this decade. With a roster including James T Cotton (aka Dabrye in jackin' house mode), Jamal Moss (under multiple pseudonyms like IBM and Africans With Mainframes), Legowelt and D'Marc Cantu you can expect expert teachings from the real raw skool of jack. Particular highlights come from IBM on 'Music Box' with 10 mins of sleazy tripping oddness, warehouse reverberating acid from Legowelt on 'Zompy Land', sh*t-yer-pants Chicago house from Polarius, and an exceptional contribution from James T Cotton on the funk chopping kicker 'King Of The Box'. Badass.
quite simply wonderful, mix of shallow and deep crate digging
DJ Rolando - The Aztec Mystic Mix
Gotta catch 'em all.
but those tracks are mostly cherry picked from these So So Def Bass All Stars comps
When Resident Advisor, Fact, XLR8R and loads of others kindly send you a free mix each week to your computer.
which is why I just did old dubstep and electroclash ones. You can prob get good examples of those from the time online for free too tbh.
what I'm really looking is just an album full of bangers of a certain dance genre
it has to be the original Metalheadz Platinum Breakz comp. I still listen to that now.
There's a great mix from Ulrich Shnauss of D&B of the 'ambient' variety from that era on the XLR8R podcast. That took me back.
Haven't bought many dance comps for the above reason. The other one I really love is Matthew Herbert's collection of his remixes - Secondhand Sounds. Does that count? It's kind of topical since he's bringing out a mega boxset of his albums.
Downloading it now.....
1991. Primal Scream, Fluke, Hypnotone, MBV...awesome.
Artificial Intelligence - Warp, pretty well known comp I reckon.
Flux Trax - EXP Recordings (Hardfloor, Slam, Underworld, Guy Called Gerald, Phuture, FUSE)
The DFA ones are really good too - remixes 1 & 2, plus the 3cd set
It's got this on it
So much love for it
As stated above is a great comp. and this is new but also looks great;
It's really great.
