It's Friday . . . Let's Dance

For those of you that thought that Glasgow dance music labels started with Soma and ended with 23rd Precinct/Limbo, think again.

In 1997 Kevin McKay started up Glasgow Underground, another label from the second city of Empire that did exactly as it said on the label, releasing quality house tracks from the not insignificant local talent and beyond  such as Musique Tropique, 16B and DJ Q. The label also released tracks by people from further afield such as Mateo and Matis and Romanthology. The track posted is by the Idjut Boys and Quakerman. The Idjut Boys are responsible for my favourite track on the label a remix of Stella Sunday that I have posted previously.

If you like what you hear and frankly what's not to like and you wish to investigate further The Glasgow Underground compilations would be a good place to start.

Have a good weekend people.

Idjut Boys & Quakerman - Radio Rage (16B Club mix)

Btw, apparently this track was canned by Sasha and appeared on one of his Essential mixes but don't let that put you off, there is not a swooshy synth line anywhere just an extremely catchy bassline

Tremendous tune-one of my faves from the 90s.
