    I have been going backwards in time with my tape collection while in the car. Pulling out boxes of old tapes and listening to them on the way to work. I'm curently into the 91-92's.

    Most of the house was pretty tame and clunky compared to today's complex tracks. Tyree Cooper snuck up on me though. Fifteen seconds into 'Let the Music Take Control' and I'm jerking my head like Deko-Zee and pumping my fist in the air like I'm four E's and two days into a weekend long party.

    That guy was so ahead of his time. Fast Eddie deserves mention too. He did the same thing to me yesterday.

    Must respect house music's early superstars. Where would the beats be without them?

    Did you know Megadeth just released a new album
    Talk about old music
    These guys should have given it up a long time ago
    They just have to realize that skin tight ripped jeans, long flowing mullets and flying v guitars just aren't cool anymore

    No way!
    Megadeth shoulda hung up their flare right after they released Countdown to Extinction
    Anything after that has been pure shit!
    The scariest thing is that they released Countdown 10 years ago!

    That you would defile my thread honoring house music legends with your Scarberian Megadeath filth enrages me.

    I will punch you. You will cry.

    The mullet has robbed your body of sense and semen.

    I am bored today.

    Just so you know that *somebody* out there shares your respect for the older sounds, rest assured!

    I was just listening to some really old John Acquaviva the other day thinking the same thing ... & I have this old OS/2 tape that I just love (I know he's only local (& can't really be called a legend (nor hourse, for that matter), he's still great in my books ...)

    There was a lushness & funkiness (esp re: house) that, although less "clean"-sounding than today's mixes, really hit the spot.

    I love the new stuff too. But you definitely have to pay homage ...

    thanks to audiogalaxy and the tribe collective ftp, i have been exploring older mixes lately too.

    current "older" faves are

    dj dan - wicked burning frenzy (1992)
    darren emerson - essential mix (1994)
    david holmes - essential mix (1993)
    andrew weatherall - essential mixes (1993, 1996)
    carl cox - live at utopia (1996)

    as for megadeth, it took me until "rust in peace" to enjoy them, and then by the time "countdown to extinction" arrived, i lost interest.

    It was pretty funny this summer walking by HMV when Megadeath was there signing autographs. It was like being in a time-warp to a parking lot outside of three rivers stadium before a def leppard concert.

    ha! i've got some Fast Eddie - 'Get Busy' and Tyree Cooper on vinyl from back in the day.

    Hip-House didn't have a very long lifespan... but was fun at the time.

    This one is totally cheesy - I found an old copy of Black Box Dreamland I picked up when I went on rugby tour to the UK in 1990. I think I was in grade 10. I got this tape and a couple other of these double tape packs with some earlier acid house type stuff on them(I really wish I could find them!). I was really into the stuff I was hearing on these tapes and at some of the people we billeted with, then I got back home to whitby and couldn't find it anywhere. It wasn't until a couple of years later that I started finding cd's by people like orbital in the record shops around home. CFNY with chris sheppard and deadly headly was pretty much my only source for non-guitar music back then. But it was probably over by 91? When did everyone abandon ship at CFNY?

    Not the greatest music by a long shot, but it still puts a smile on my face.

    Ride on time :D
