Founded way back in 91, Z Records have since amassed a lauded and plentiful collection of singles, albums and
compilations. Run by Dave Lee aka Joey Negro, the label has enjoyed success through his unique ability to foster the
principles of underground dance music whilst also remaining mindful of commercial appeal.
Through various compilations, Mr Lee has consistently delved deep into the heart of a specific genre or era and selecting a
lesser-known series of tracks that give a real insight into the spirit and energy that made that point in time special. Whether
it's been GoGo, Brit Funk, Boogie, Italo house or straight up Disco, he has mined deep into his extensive bank of influences
and also enlisted the help of some of his most clued-up comrades in offering some unforgettable collections of classics.
Next up - he pulls together a collection of his favourite moments across a definitive decade for House and Garage: the 90’s.
Inclusive of material from Kerri Chandler, Robert Owens and MAW as well as remixes from Mood II Swing and Ron Trent - the
compilation is packed with sultry vocal lines and the sort of slick, irresistible grooves that defined the era.
Sticking with the ethos of his series, Joey Negro has dug out an olio of music that may have until now ‘slipped under the
garage doors’ meaning a lot of the material on this compilation is being digitised for the very first time.
In searching deeper and wider than the average compilation, the package provides a thorough insight into why this was
such a fertile period for production and gives a nod to the sort of drum patterns, sampling techniques and vocal lines that
have inspired the likes of Bicep, Brawther and Huxley amongst many more.
