Don’t worry if you’re stuck at at desk job while your brain is stuck in the 90s — you can still have a rave in your headphones anytime you like! These old-school electronica mixtapes will take you back to where it all began.
While this early-’80s Prince collaboration fell slightly off to one side during the Purple One’s decade of miracles, some may remember a PG-13 version of their catchy single Nasty Girl from the Beverly Hills Copstrip club scene.
Back once again for another old school collection. This time we’re going to the back of the crate for some heavyweight classics that will absolutely melt your face. Spanning the crucial ’92 – ’95 era, we let drum and bass legends Roni Size, Goldie, Bay B Kane, Andy C, and Aphrodite take us on the ultimate jungle safari back to where it all began.
Welcome to Hardcore Math User’s ’95 Jungle Sound Murderah mixtape!
These are some of the songs that got me seriously hooked on the jungle / drum & bass scene when I first got my start as a producer in the early ’90s. I remember completely feeling the intelligent vibe as I listened to Goldie’s Jah, Rogue Unit’s Nocturnal, and EZ Roller’s Rolled Into One. The combination of complex rhythms, mathematical symmetry and lush keyboard sounds absolutely floored me.
If I could blame one song for getting me hooked on electronic music, it would have to be Harold Faltermeyer’s timeless Axel F Theme from the Beverly Hills Cop soundtrack. I was like 11 years old when I saw the movie and could not—could not—handle how cool that song was.
