On 26 July 1999, the Sheffield based club Gatecrasher released their third album, titled Gatecrasher Wet. Despite the massive success of the Gallagher produced albums Gatecrasher Black (1998) and Gatecrasher Red (Feb 1999) the third installment was initially rebuked by Simon Raine and Scott Bond due to the Northern expression "don't talk wet", but Gallagher to persevered with his concept, explaining that its release date would coincide with what was to be an incredible summer of dance music. The album debuted at #3 in the UK compilation charts.
Scott Bond once again mixed the album and gave the album a 'Wet' feel and theme, with a selection of songs that gave wet, Ibiza sound. Saltwater by Chicane - one of the years big hits, was added to the album which tried to reflected the sounds that people associate with the summer - bright, wet, and uplifting.
Disc 1, named 'Aqua' had the more variety of sounds and rhythms, whilst Disc 2, named 'Sub' had a "harder" sound to it.
