The 10 best UK house tracks, according to Terry Farley
The Boy's Own co-founder and essential DJ tells us about the music that's influenced him.
Ahead of his appearance DJing at theDrop Acid Not Bombsparty this weekend in east London, Boy’s Own co-founder and legendary DJTerry Farleyprovides a run-down of the best of UK house. Scroll down and turn it up.
Bang The Party – Bang Bang You’re Mine Terry: “Very early London track from Kid Batchelor’s clique that mixes early trax and a London soul to soul vibe – still very playable and collectable.”
Paul Rutherford – Get Real (Happy house mix) Terry: “Obvious choice, but the man from Frankie Goes to Hollywood whose 2 tribes had been a monster anthem for Ron Hardy at the muzik box really caught the mood and vibe of ’88. Then again as he was on the dancefloor every saturday at Shoom you would expect nothing less.”
Beloved – Sun Rising Terry: “The impact of hearing this as the sun does indeed rise in Ibiza or a corn field around the M25 was truly inspirational. Mr and Mrs Marsh made a record that represented a generation and beyond.”
X-Press 2 – Muzik Xpress* Terry: “Sound factory 1994 – it’s 7am and Jr Vasquez plays two copies of this track back in and out for nearly 40 mins sending the Queens and Ball kids crazy – UK house taking it back to the motherland.”
