I've been diggin' thru my mixtapes over the past few weeks and remembered how much I really like that old Chicago House vibe. It's kinda corny compared to today's music but it still gets me grooving like a lot of the stuff out nowadays can't. Unfortunately, most of my cassettes haven't held up too well.

Anyone have some good archives or online sites with older mixes or DJ Sets (could even be stuff recorded off a radio show or something). I've got a few bookmarked for old mixtapes but a lot of that stuff is late 1990s/early 2000s stuff. Hoping to find stuff going back a bit further. Would love some older house but will be happy with almost anything from back in the day.

Nice one guys!

Can't get the ezeskankin links to work for some reason (seems the office network is denying me) but Ravearchive is grand...

I found a few older Bad Boy Bill live mixes on ravearchive from around '98 (this is about the same time I discovered him) and they are sooo good! I know, the music was simpler back then, but these take me back. I think part of it is being able to re-live my early "rave" days.

I picked up a few Deep Dish mixtapes from ezeskankin (from back when they had a deeper house sound) and so far so good with those.
Also found a live Donald Glaude mix from '95 and am DLing it now...

:music:

I enjoyed the Deep Dish ones but unless you're into nostalgia you'll want to take a pass on the Glaude live mix lol :uhoh:
