Turn Up The Bass & House Classics Mix

Today, at work, I wanted to hear some oldskool House tunes. And for me during the 90s, the only compilation that mattered was Turn Up The Bass. Yes, House Party was great, but not as good as TUTB. So a quick Soundcloud search for something related to TUTB (I was hoping the albums would be on there), but I found something else! A mix by Arjan van der Paauw. By judging his name he looks kind of Dutch, like myself. So he probably also grew up with this majestic compilation.

His mix is a mix and mash. You get the classics, the ones we all love, and a bit more. It's a megamix: 58 records in 58 minutes. So don't expect to throw a House Party which will last for hours: this party only lasts for 58 minutes. But those 58 minutes are so glorious. This music is much better than everything produced nowadays. This is timeless music. And Arjan did pick a nice selection of records. Finger licking good!

Now that's a tracklist I wasn't expecting! So many 90s classics in here! Sweet Lord, this is really interesting. A trip back into memory lane. When TCD was a young lad, dancing in his bedroom with his My First Sony walkman. Yep, that's me. I was young, but I loved this music. This is what made me a huge music lover. And can you disagree: this music is so damn powerful. Play it in front of any crowd, and everyone, and I do mean EVERYONE will love these tunes.

Whoever this person is who made this mix, credits to him. He has made my day slightly more interesting. Just to see these anthems in one mix is just astonishing! Some are obviously well know, but also a lot I've completely forgotten about! It's time for me to sit down, go into my TUTB folder and start going through them all!

It's not an easy task to pick a favorite, when the whole mix contains only dancefloor slammers of the 90s. But seeing as I am a raver (in hart en nieren) I've selected Moby's 'Go'. A true timeless masterpiece.

Some tracks are just a bit meh, a bit cheesy (like 20 Fingers records), but it suits the era. It was the time of people experimenting. So I can't blame Arjan for choosing them.

Do you want a proper trip down memory lane? Look no further!
