Now to the actual post.
MJ said »Everyday create your history«.
I’m not a fan of history at all, but this one is much more fun. Things like where the term House came from (the first parties were held in warehouses) etc.
I went through the below books and checked the names that rang a bell. I’ll be providing a very short list . I’ve decided not to put videos and tracks in, but you can find a link in the text.
The two books were:
– The Virgin Encyclopedia of Dance Music by Colin Larkin and
– All Music Guide to Electronica, several authors.
Descriptions of artists in the books that had lots of useless mumbo jumbo were supplemented with links from Wikipedia. I had more stuff written down for the artists, but when reviewing I found it irrelevant, so I deleted it.
