Another edition of ‘Apparently 90s’, this time visiting the latter end of the 90s dance scene.
I love a bit of classic house, it has a sort of ethereal quality, that I think stems from how ‘open’ the production was. These days house producers tend to opt for the ‘wall of sound’ approach and fill in all the gaps (quite often by over compressing the sound), but classic house is naked and honest, letting you hear the entire production with pride. There’s actually something to be learnt from classic house (though it was most likely just the result of D.I.Y. production, rather than a direct sound choice) in how to create more emotive/textured dance music.
