This episode is all about looking back while facing forward, with a focus on some of the incredible raw, warm house music being released on vinyl only labels such as 2 bit crew, HPTY and luvdancin'. Not only is the music here timeless in the sense that it could have been released in the 90s, it also embodies the continued devotion of small, independent labels to the magic of releasing music made with passion in limited runs on a format which has not just endured, but actively thrived through the prolific rise of digital convenience. In keeping with this spirit, and following a thought provoking conversation with Chris Sharp on mixcloud recently about how easily DJs can fall into a neglect of the past, I've included two long time favourite cuts from the late 90s. An incredible one off by Frank Le Fever and a throbbing floor melter by Didier Sinclair.
