This 20 track deep compilation represents (in my opinion) some of the very finest music that Dance and Indie (Baggy) music had to offer music lovers and club heads in the early 90's.

My hope is that these tracks evoke some great memories and a truly joyous trip down memory lane or if you are new to any of these then I hope you enjoy them.

I have spent pretty much all of my Life around music whether selling it, playing it in clubs/bars etc or on radio, writing about it, dancing to it or just listening to it and as I grow older (I'm 44 now with a beautiful Daughter and a Lovely Wife) I have (like many others before me) deeply gone down nostalgia lane and actually came out a better person for it I feel.

I sifted through hundreds of tracks and changed the track-listings over many times but I honestly feel that this first volume is a great compilation and does what I set it out to do.

The 90's just had soul, style, heart, substance and creativity in a massive abundance and I can fondly recall a session around or '92 or 93 where I said "Man, I wish I could just repeat these years over and over again".

I had all of these tracks on 12", CD or CD single or Cassingle at one stage but most have either got sold, lost or stolen (as it goes) however it's 2017 now and we live in a digital age and I for one am incredibly grateful for today's technology.

This compilation is especially dedicated to my old Vivian Street crew, my old Cuba Street and Stussy crew (Evening Post famous once haha) all of the old Naked Angel and Midnight Espresso crew, Clinton Smiley, Cian and Cool Tone from The Soul Mine
Colin Morris and Steve H and the crew from Colin Morris Records every single person I had the good fortune of meeting through great music and last but definitely not least...every single DJ that rocked these tracks and others like it and made me lose my mind on the dance floor.

The 90's were indeed a very special and unique time.

Until the next one ;)
