Masterklass #23 : A Walk Through A Decade Of House by Borealis


Red Bull Elektropedia Masterklass is not just another random mixtape series. Every episode tells the story of a love affair between a DJ and a certain genre, era, label or any kind of subject matter interesting enough to be turned into a proper mixtape. We select the DJs and musicians based on their knowledge of (and enthusiasm for) music - giving them absolute freedom to show off their insights.

For this Masterklass 'Borealis' is going back to the nature of sound with a summery-cocktail-vibe 100% vinyl mix, including only tracks made between 1990 and 2000. It includes everything you might need in a good vinyl mix: small, warm cracks and even a skipping needle. The tracks in this masterklass are played in a chronological order to let you fully experience the walk they want you to make through a decade of some forgotten House tracks. Each & every one selected to bring a smile on every listener's face & a warm, nostalgic feeling to their hearts. This mix is a respectful salute to the '90s, a decade which definitely has a special place in the heart of 'Borealis' too.
