1988 - 1993 House Classics Mix (2012)

I hope you all have a great week. I'm having an OK week, if I'm honest. Nothing excited has happened, but I'm excited to share this 9 year old mix with you all. Obviously you need to be familiar with the music genre we call House, and you need to love the late 80s/early 90s sound, but most of us human beings do, so there's no need to worry; you will love this mix, if you haven't checked it out on Youtube already.

This mix already has reached 2.1 million views, 17k+ upvotes, and only 802 downvotes. Don't understand why you would do such a thing, but hey ho, opinions matter. As I grew up with Techno and House music, it is running through my veins. This was the kind of music I adored when I was a wee young lad. I couldn't go out raving back in the years 1988 to 1993, I was only 10 in 1993. I would have certainly be thrown out immediately. And that's sad. Looking back at all the videos of people raving back in those days, it just seems to be so damn cool. A different kind of experience, I presume.

Obviously I couldn't go clubbing, but I could still absorb the music. And even to this day I love hearing these late 80s/early 90s tunes. So calm, so relaxing. You just need to close your eyes, and you are in paradise. Again, to fully understand each individual track, you had to experience it when the tunes were smoking hot, and played in the clubs all over the country. But for me they sound awesome, so I'm guessing that those who partied until the break of dawn must have deeper feelings to these tracks. More memories linked to this kind of House.

I don't know much about who runs the 'statenhal' account on Youtube, but the DJ made this wicked mix, containing only the true obscure House anthems from those years. And without further ado, let me show you the tracklist. Hell yeah, you will be in for a treat!

So, this happened. A fantastic hour and 53 minute long House mix. And all tracks are recorded from vinyl, so you might hear the occasional crackling noise, which was common. So what does that mean, in terms of music? Well, one word: Heaven. House Heaven.

I cannot speak on everyone's behalf, but I'm guessing most of you lot wouldn't mind hearing this kind of music on a mellow Wednesday, right? One day closer to the end of lockdown, and we could use some happy vibes coming at us through our speakers. Let this mix bring some sunshine and happiness to you.

Happiness is what it's all about. And this mix might have some dark underground anthems, you will still feel happy and excited. But which record made you the happiest? Leave a comment below, would be interesting to find out your favourite record. Mine has to be Sil with 'Windows', with Cece Peniston's vocals. And also 'Hi-Q' by Stereogen. Wicked anthems.
