Graeme Park Presents Long Live House Vol 01: 1980s
If house is a feeling, Graeme Park knows what it is. Resident at The Haçienda, this compilation draw together favourite tracks from 1985 to 1989. It’s littered with classics like Sha-lor’s sublime ‘I’m In Love’ and The IT’s plaintive ‘Donnie’, alongside lesser-known jackers, like Peter Black’s ‘How Far I Go (Acid)’, which capture the joyous energy of the time. What’s also apparent are gems that today would be labelled techno: the sinister strings of Rhythim Is Rhythim’s ‘Nude Photo’ virtually define the early sound of the Motor City, while Reese & Santonio’s ‘Bounce Your Body To The Box (Power Hit Mix)’ reflects the industrial pump of its hometown. Add early UK house hits, like Annette’s alluring ‘Dream 17’, and some freestyle, with The Beat Club’s darkly sexy ‘Security (Midnight Club Mix)’, and you have a genuine time capsule from someone who really does remember house before it was house.
