About this deal

A cookie set by YouTube to measure bandwidth that determines whether the user gets the new or old player interface. Much of the credit for that extraterrestrial feel goes to her visionary producer-partner Timbaland, who took Ann Peebles’ 1973 soul oddity ‘I Can’t Stand the Rain’, added fat splashes of digital bass, hiccuping drums and an incessant chirping-cricket noise, and left enough room for Elliott to slink, moan, cough, vroom and flicky-flicky all over the open space. Mixmag will use the information you provide to send you the Mixmag newsletter using Mailchimp as our marketing platform. In truth, Missy ‘Misdemeanor’ Elliott spoke for no one but herself, and her debut single doesn’t sound like it’s from any particular region, or country, or planet.

I admit that two of the songs that I enjoy a lot that are in this assortment are "Dreamer" by Livin Joy and "It's A Fine Day" by Opus III.The beauty of ‘Groove is in the Heart’ — and the reason it’s still in heavy rotation — is that it foresaw the 1990 identity crisis and fortified its place on the dance floor by inventing a musical time machine. Think Blur vs Oasis, Fatboy Slim, Primal Scream, The Verve, The Chemical Brothers, Faithless, The Prodigy and a whole lot more.

It’s all there in the title track, a primal howl of electrified blues-rock that’s equal parts lovesick wail and feminist stomp. Anger, despondency, pain and chaos ripped through a million bedrooms as we listened to Cobain wail, scream and howl lyrics that were as confusing as they were powerful: “A mulatto, an albino, a mosquito, my libido… hey. Drugs, murder, HIV: Lisa ‘Left Eye’ Lopez’s verses treat life's tragedies with wisdom, patience and soul, before her rap preaches the power of hope and self-belief. Fun fact: The famous line "These sounds fall into my mind" actually reads "Street sounds swirling through my mind". Long before becoming a staple of dorm-room posters, Wu-Tang was a scrappy crew rising out of the slums of Staten Island.A pulsating, hyper-sexualized chunk of grime-covered industrial rock, ‘Closer’ achieved cultural ubiquity across the board thanks to its undeniably sexy, abrasive content and its steampunk Salvador Dali video. But ‘“G” Thang’ still resonated as an introduction, simply because it sounded unlike anything hip-hop had heard before — a meticulously crafted gangsta symphony, built from smokey wah guitar, whistling synths and creeping bass, all flowing smoother than a river of Courvoisier.

The legendary opening sample – taken from 1966 flick, ‘The Wild Angels’ – kickstarted countless nights out and spoke for an entire generation. And wouldn’t it be brilliant if – in some small, tangential way – the economic fate of the Eurozone had been influenced two decades later by some lanky singer from Yorkshire? Released on Twisted America Records in 1996, the US house duo Murk join with vocalist Tamara Wallace as Funky Green Dog for 'Fired Up' - an early tribal house tune that's catchy, uplifting and the right choice for leading you into a long night. It’s accessible enough to attract the masses but it also rocks hard enough to please the head-banging hordes; at any ’Tallica show, you’ll see even hardened fans (who live and die by the band’s early thrash metal numbers) raise their fists and sing along with a shit-eating grin: ‘Eeee-xit LIGHT! After putting out the original and his spiffy 'Atmosphere Dub' of the track, Kerri Chandler rode this conquering deep house classic all the way to the realms of dance music stardom.At the heart of it all were Portishead, whose gloomy, brooding and often oppressive sound was a conspiracy of contradictions that defined ‘trip-hop’. First released in 1990 as the b-side to Moby's debut single 'Mobility' in 1990 on Instinct Records, this is the track that first put the electronic music powerhouse on the map. Every now and then, the internet has a freakout when people discover that Imbruglia’s signature hit is - gasp! Released on his Orlando, Florida-based imprint Zone Records, DJ Icey's prolific breakbeat sound came into its own with his 12" ' Low Down Good Girl / All Beautiful'.

What with Damon’s heroin-chic drawling and Graham’s slumping riff and killer solo, this is Britpop’s best band at their world-beating peak. For us, we look at a rave anthem as being the kind of tune that is met with a blatant and recognized roar when it hits the floor. Some may have been forgotten but this is very good value for money in terms of the amount of songs for your money. His lo-fi, sepia-saturated take on a school concert that descends into madness – complete with slo-mo cheerleaders, smashed up guitars and smoke and fire in a sports hall full of sweaty headbanging teens – was as disturbing and anarchic as the song itself. Released under Josh Wink's Winx moniker, this unsettling underground staple is a track that has seared itself into the brains of numerous '90s ravers (for better or for worse).A-Ha Airhead Alison Moyet All-4-One Aswad Aztec Camera Babybird Babylon Zoo Banderas Barbara Tucker Barenaked Ladies Betty Boo Beverley Knight Bob Marley Versus Funkstar Deluxe Brandy Catatonia Cher Cicero Cleopatra Coldcut Color Me Badd D-Influence Damage Denim Des'ree Dinosaur Jr. Combining heavy hip hop beats and throbbing basslines with jazz and soul samples, the music was good, but the vocals of tortured songstress Beth Gibbons were outstanding.
