The History Of House Music - 1993 [Mixed by AMATEUR AT PLAY]

As it’s a Friday and I’m in a good mood, I thought I’d give everyone who follows me and likes (well, hopefully likes) what I do a present. It might also give you an insight into some of the influences on my music, many of whom actually appear in this set.
I did this mix a few years ago now, and it’s been languishing on my hard drive ever since. It’s filled with tracks solely from 1993 and lasts 90 minutes in total. This was around the time I started getting into house music properly. I knew many of these records at the time, but had absolutely no idea who was behind them.
Back in those pre-internet days, if you wanted to find out who made these records, you had to go to a record shop and seeing that I lived miles away from any of them, (oh, and the fact I was only 8 years old at the time) I didn’t find out until many years later what they were.
The sound quality on this mix wasn’t the greatest, for some reason that has been forgotten in the midst of time. I’ve cleaned up the sound as much as I reasonably could, but this is perfectly okay for listening to in the house or the car or wherever.
Without further ado, here’s the mix. The tracklist appears just below the waveform, and yes, you’re more than welcome to download a copy! Let me know what you think in the comments, on Hearthis, via my Twitter page or by sending a message via carrier pigeon - it’s all good!

Like this mix? Download it. Share it with your friends. And don't forget to follow me on Twitter and on this very blog, because there WILL be more...
