V.A.20 Years Of Henry Street Music
Johnny D'Mairo's Henry Street Music label. To celebrate, BBE is marking
the occasion with a very special 5 x 7 inch vinyl box set.
Many of the movers and shakers of the day had their best moments on
Henry Street, and some of the best of them are represented here: Johnick,
Armand Van Helden, Kenny Dope, Ralphi Rosario, Mike Delgado, DJ
Sneak, Robbie Tronco, 95 North and Scotti Deep - a veritable roll-call of
the premiereleague of dance at the time, an era when dance music still
seemed incredibly fertile and the link with its own past is still vital.
Henry Street (named after Brooklyn homeboy Johnny's neighbourhood)
always had a 'New York' vibe, and even when drawing its producers from
further afield, the label encapsulated the city's melting-pot of talent and raw,
bristling energy... energy captured here, and exploding off these remastered
tracks like it's 1999 all over again! So... dust off those dancing shoes, and
get ready to feel the heat, it's one more time for the Henry Street Hustle!
