    Default Oldskool House recommendations

    So Ive got my regular sathurday night gig coming up next weekend and I thought it would be nice to add some oldskool tunes. Ive already got quite a few, but Id be interested if you guys have more you think will do the trick. I was born in '89 so I was alive at the time, but not that conscious of music yet

    Im looking for tunes in the likes of:
    Faze Action In the Trees
    Fierce Ruling Diva Rubb it In
    Jaydee Plastic Dreams
    Kid Unknown Nightmare
    Phenomania Who is Elvis
    Prodigy Charly
    Tiga Sunglasses at Night (not strictly oldskool as its a lot newer, but it fits in nicely)

    Stuff like that.

    Let me know!

    Sorry for being a bit obvious, but check out Strictly Rhythm, Traxx Records, Relief Records and Downtown 161. I'm not sure if they have any digital releases, though. (I think SR have started releasing new stuff on digital and Traxx have released some old stuff?)

    Just as obvious, but Nice'n'Ripe re-released their entire back catalogue digitally. Unbelievably good if you're into early 90ies UK garage house.

    I was more into the American House stuff more than 'rave', which much of that would come under. However, this one was huge in Ibiza in 1991 and the side of 'rave' I liked before it got too intense



    The intro of this scared the hell out of me when I first heard it, and I think it still does, lol. Devil rave music



    This is quality techno, and many House heads played it. it's such an awesome track.



    I don't think there's anything in the same genre as Jaydee Plastic Dreams - Drum beat like no other track plus the didgeridoo thing - Nothing like it and if there is then it will just be a rip off

    Hey, nice recommendations everybody! About being obvious, what may be super obvious for you may be complete news for me. Remember, I wasn't clubbing at that time. Heck, I was barely walking xD
