Before EDM was coined there were record labels releasing dance music for the mass of DJs and club-goers already into house and dance music. For 20 years, King Street Sounds and sister labels have seen their fair share of floor-shakers hitting crowds from NY to Miami to Japan to Ibiza and beyond. To commemorate this milestone, King Street is celebrating some of the best foot-tappin, head-nodding releases with a special 20-track compilation.
Some of the most full on 4/4 tracks that truly defined what house music is today were produced by some of the best producers like Guy Gerber, Angel Moraes, Peter Rauhofer, Cevin Fisher, Benji Candelario, Saaed & Palash, Satoshi Tomiie, Tiger Stripes, Roy Davis J. and many more. Now they’ve been culled from the catalog reflecting back to the distant and not so distant past and are featured here. It features earlier tunes released in the first decade like Mood II Swing ‘Heart Attack Track’ released in '94, Ultra Naté ‘Party Girl’ (1995), X-System ‘Hard Harmony’ (1996), Divas of Color feat. Evelyn "Champagne" King ‘One More Time’ (1996), Johnny Dangerous ‘Beat That Bitch’ (1997) and more. The release also features more contemporary tunes released in the second decade like, Ananda Project feat. Nicola Hitchcock ‘Can You Find The Heart’ (2003), Joshua Collins ‘Falling Up Ward’ (2003), Guy Gerber ‘Midnight Sketches’ (2006), and more.
