You cannot have a conversation about the history of UK house music without mentioning Guerilla Records.. Looking back on things in 2019 its apparent that this label would have a far reaching effect on dance music worldwide, back then I think we just embraced it looking no further than the next weekend party.. Progressive House and the Guerilla sound were a turning point for many in the early nineties, we had our fill of warehouse parties and the sound there was getting quicker, dare I say it we were becoming a bit bored ?.. The new sound being spearheaded by Guerilla was a welcome, refreshing change, something different and boy did it deliver.. This DJ Mag special from 1992 gives a great insight into the forward thinking team behind the label, plus a link to download the cover mount Justin Robertson Guerilla Mastermix... Ive spliced the tape into a continual mix.. so no turning the tape over..
Press play for Guerilla..
At Guerilla HQ they put something in the coffee..
Picture yourself on a dancefloor..
Spooky.. musical influences.. "early techno, Fingers Inc, a lot of rock, Brian Eno.. ambient stuff.. We draw from a load of different styles"..
"A lot of house music sounds great when your off your face.. We want our stuff to sound just as good when you get home"..
