So many to choose from but this one brings up very specific memories of the old days.

Have to own up to @Apiento turning me onto the Brother Beyond dub via his NTS show. Hadn’t previously heard it before myself either. So good.

I had to press pause on the show and jump straight to Discogs. It’s worth it for the “I’ll house you” intro alone. Top tune. Thanks…and Paul too!

I nicked it off Mison though I think it was a big one for people a few years older than me.

I think this thread should have one of the more affordable selections of records to buy. Some of these were big tracks so should be lots of copies for sale at a reasonable price. I love buying amazing 90s house for a few quid.

It’s kind of criminal knowing how brilliant Morales was and what these tunes meant back in the day that you can pick them up for a few quid. NM copies are a bit more obvs but still pretty reasonable. Mind you it’s the volume that kills the bank balance with Red Zone cos there are just so many good ones to buy.

Love this too even though it’s not really that Red-Zoney

Darren Emmerson with two copies of this at that infamous Boy’s Own weekender at Bognor. Felt like he extended that intro for twenty minutes

One of my mentors signed morales and bad yard club to a pretty sizable major label deal back in the day. Obviously it did not pan out, but listening to all of the mixes in this thread you can see how he really was creating a different imprint for house one that very much reflected the general club climate in the city and of red zone in particular, a place that definitely did not have a peace and love vibe but that was definitely the center of the club universe for a good hot minute.

I can definitely envision an alternate reality where everything clicked and bad yard had a bunch of giant hits or changed the sound of urban music

Some of that more dancehall vibe translated into the infamous “big beat” a couple of years later. Now there’s a subject for a thread!

Seem to remember this being a Sasha tune bitd
