THE HOUSE THAT JACK BUILT

TDK MA90 metal cassette tapeYou think you know House? You don’t know Jack! Is it Jack Music? House? Garage or Chicago Groove? It’s 1987 and we finally decided on a name for the genre – House it is. Many years later we still dance to House, and all its wonderful mutations. Here’s the original, a real crackerjack mix by Paul Dakeyne, lifted from the Disco Mix Club February 1987 LP.

Silk – I Can’t Turn Around, MTR – The Walk, Adonis – No Way Back, Denise Motto – I.M.N.X.T.C.

CHAD JACKSON 1986 DMC MIX

Here representing Britain in the 1986 Disco Mix Club championship is DMC regular Chad Jackson. Featuring the Set It Off break that was huge in this year, plus other instrumental biggies like Mr Magic Man by Rochelle, Axel F Harold Faltermayer, Alice Full Force plus more. Standard choice of samples to scratch, one or two needle skips which seemed to be forgiveable in 1986. Chad came a well-deserved second place behind DJ Cheese. This recording is from Robbie Vincent’s show on Radio London.
