INFO > “Take the funkiness, the groove of American house and disco, but give it the balls of European techno, chuck in a few New Romantic samples and maybe a touch of piano and abracadabra!” That’s how former Mixmag editor Dom Phillips—who coined the name progressive house—described the genre’s sound. Many of the major players from the era are represented on this outstanding collection, as well as the labels: Cowboy, Guerilla, Hard Hands, Junior Boy’s Own, Rhythm King, Stress, and X-Gate.
