We continue with another special Anniversary event, this time, celebrating 35 years since the likes of Kaos brought you the new dance sound!
1989, the year it all kicked off and the exploding new dance scene was no longer exclusive to niche events dotted across the country with West Yorkshire being at the forefront of it with DJs like Mark & Farrar playing at Kaos and Vicky’s as well as Graham Dixon playing nights around the county including the transformation of Ricky’s into the place to be!
Ibiza was killing it with it’s Balearic sounds including Italo House reaching our shores from the likes of Sueño Latino and FPI Project, Europe was catching up on the Techno front with the USA, who were still at the top of their game with Jimi Polo, Landlord, Seduction and Lil’ Louis knocking out timeless House Anthems, the latter even reaching number 2 in the charts.
But most of all, the UK were up there, challenging the best, maestros like Mark Archer were heading up the emerging dance scene and his projects such as C&M Connection, Nexus 21, Bizarre Inc and Altern 8 were joined by the likes of N-Joi, Orbital, 808 State and literally hundreds of others to put us where we belong, at the top of any music genre.
Liverpool DJ Andy Carroll had been resident at The State and had the opportunity to join Mike Knowler in the opening of a new club at Quadrant Park, the night took off like nobody could have expected and upon receiving the Music Is A State Of Mind EP from N-Joi, he was the first the play Anthem in the North of England, you must have seen the video, the rest is history.
The night is going to be packed with 7 hours non stop of underground classics from this era, many of which you won’t have heard in a club for 35 years, check out mixes on YouTube such as Paul Trouble Anderson at Sunrise, Back To The Future just to give you a small insight into what went down in the Summer of ’89.
