    Well it's only really the US & Canada that house/rave/edm/whateveritscalledthisweek was still considered underground until recently.
    Shit went overground at the end of 1988 in the UK.

    Yep Nicky is right. Stuff like "jack your body", "love can't turn around", "activ8", "hardcore uproar" etc was charting highly in the UK. How "anthem" didn't chart higher (45) i'll never know. Dance music has been part of popular culture for some decades now.

    Europe seemed to jump on the dance music scene right away. Personally I think that the miami bass sound/freestyle was the biggest style to break out of a region in the US. Only a very few Chicago house, garage house, detroit techno tracks broke into the main stream. Chicago used to have multiple underground/regional genre's; Chicago punk (ie naked raygun) and industrial (wax trax) back in the 80s and 90s. All of it is gone as far as far as I can tell.

    Definitely.

    Nicky, off topic, and prob ought to take this PM, but I just wondered if you would be interested in submitting a 30min mix as a guest mix slot on my radio show? I've just listened to your Soundcloud mixes, v nice indeed.

    Cheers,
