THE NINETIES 1 – Strictly Rhythm ’90-’93

So tonight is the May edition of Yoyoyo 90’s Dance Jam @ Redline and to celebrate here is our first 90’s post (of many more I hope):



Classic Video: DHS – House Of God (1990)

Now for the real business at hand, Strictly Rhythm. I could go on and on about the label’s history and all the amazing artists and tracks on here, but discogs has the info (as they always do), so I’m just gunna talk about the 3 tracks we picked. Defected has now licensed Strictly’s back catalog and most tracks are available for digital purchase so go here and buy all your favorite classics.

The Underground Solution – Luv Dancin’ (In Deep Mix) DOWNLOAD

Released in 1990, this is one of the S-Man’s first tracks and certified NYC deep house classic that samples Loose Joint‘s 1980 disco workout “Is It All Over My Face” (a classic in it’s own right).

The Untouchables – I’m For Real DOWNLOAD

It really is amazing how many NYC house artists careers were pushed by Strictly in the 90’s. K. Dope is another example and this 1991 production is probably his best work under his Untouchables guise.
