As Calvin Harris once said, “I’ve got love for you if you were born in the 80s.” Since I was born in the grand year of 1988, this new tune from BNR Records reps, Boys Noize & Housemeister, on the new Dance Mania tribute compilation naturally stood out immediately to me. “1988” boasts a classic rave vibe, with rough analog production pumping along relentlessly at 130BPM.
A huge fan of Chicago’s DJ Funk and the Dance Mania imprint of the 90s, Boys Noize lauds the relevancy of the Dance Mania sound to this day, and we’d have to agree with him. Pick up the 13 track compilation on BNR November 25th and check “1988” below.
Inspired by Housemeister‘s incredible third release, Music is Awesome, three greats have created their own versions of some of the albums best dance floor tracks. That’s right; Zombie Nation, Djedjotronic and SCNTST have all remixed their favorite tracks off of Music is Awesome and put together the stellar results for this EP. Each artist delivers their own unique blend of sounds; from experimentally abstract synth play to familiar rolling basslines.
