LINER NOTES > Why Tesko? The concept of Tesko first appeared in 1993 at the Leeds nightclub Vague, coined to describe the particular brand of disco house music being championed by notorious DJs TWA (Trannies With Attitude) at the club. It quickly became apparent that this was not an isolated phenomenon when the press began to refer to “digifunk” and “90’s disco” in an attempt to describe the music that many other DJs were playing around the country – Techno Disco. Tesko is defined as being Techno with the sex put back in it; the power of Techno with all the funk and feeling of classic Disco tunes. Whatever you call it, it’s here on this compilation in all its glory… and variety; and we hope this collection will enable more peopleto get their hands on these tracks, many of which are rare or downright unavailable.

Dig It. Tesko. Tekno Disco For The Nineties.

Flogging it further, React commissioned more mixes from Johnny Vicious and Brainbug the following year, and then another raft of reworks in 2004. Looking on Discogs, I see there were yet more mixes issued in 2010 and 2011. Let it rest, people—the age of love has passed…
