OK so I've been getting into some Chicago classic house music recently.  Stuff from the mid to late eighties and have came across some amazing tracks that really sound great through the Sharp 8989. :-)

 

Here's a quick list of some of the tracks I've been listening too -

 

 

Liaisons Dangereuses - Los Niños Del Parque (Instrumental Mix) - 1981.  Awesome bassline.  Iconic.

Shirly Lites - Heat You Up (Melt You Down) -1983.  Both the vocal and instrumental mixes sound fantastic.

Rufus & Chaka Khan - Ain´t Nobody (12' Frankie Knuckles Hallocinogenic Mix) - 1989.  Great mix of a great tune.

Frankie Knuckles - Your Love (12' Mix) - 1987.  Classic house track.

Steve 'Silk' Hurley - Jack Your Body (Club Mix) - 1986.  Another classic from 1986

Inner City - Good Life - 1988. Until recently I actually thought Inner City were from London.  :blush:

J.M. Silk - Shadows of Your Love - 1986

Lil' Louis - French Kiss - 1989

Philly Cream - Love Can't Turn Around (Dub Version) - 1986

 

 

 

Loving getting into this early house stuff and like I said, it sounds great cranked up through a box.

 

 

Anyone got anymore suggestions to add to this list?

Thanks for posting this video Van Presence!

 

It's not about being straight or gay it's about enjoying the sounds.

 

I love music so much that my genre has no limits.
