03 Tronik Youth

Guest Mix Info

“The idea behind the mix is to showcase some of the tracks that were being played in the weird vacuum after disco died and before house began. These tracks were to define the sound that the dj’s in Chicago would use as the building blocks for what became house… many of the sounds and fx that these tunes have would be utilised in the tracks that went on to dominate dance music in the mid to late 80’s.

These tracks would inspire the Dj’s and producers of the Chicago area to start making their own music, replayed on cheap drum machines and keyboards, this would be the dawn of house. Frankie Knuckles even replayed the middle eight of Electra’s – Feel Good and used it as the basis of his track “Your Love” … Enjoy!” – Tronic Youth
