    Default U.S. Hard House?

    I feel like nobody outside the N.Y. scene appreciates old school 90s hard house, which has a serious influence on a lot of the electro bangers being produced today. Guys like Mark V & Poogie Bear, Dj Trajic, Irene, etc. As a beginning dj, I would love to start incorporating this stuff into my work, but the problem is i don't spin vinyl, have no money to upgrade to vinyl, and don't know any good record stores within 10 miles of me. I need a good source for hard house in mp3/wav format, but it seems the majority of online stores I go to seriously lack good hard house.

    Does anybody know of any sites online that sell old school hard house? Any tips or points in the right direction would be greatly appreciated.

    Within the last year I just got back into electronic music after a whileand couldn't believe the old hard house influences.. I think alot of those labels went under which probably explains why the tunes aren't available as mp3's (legally).

    Surprised booty house hasn't made a comeback!

    Tidy Trax was more UK Hard House.. when I think US Hard House I think of labels UC and IHR. The good old harder days of rave music.

    it was and always will be uk hard house.. i just took my opportunity to announce their ceasing of pressing vinyl in a thread associated with hard house in general rather than start a new thread about it

    after late 2003 tidy seemed to just keep churning out the same old sound, as if their producers were just changing a template and dropping in a different vocal sample.. actually most 'hard' labels seemed to be doing that at about that time!
