Dica - Disconsin (1997) - unreleased Chicago disco house mixtape

Dica - Disconsin (1997) - unreleased Chicago disco house mixtape

Playing tracks by

DJ Funk, DJ Sneak, Hispanic Syndicate Empire, Armand Van Helden, Jello Biafra and more.

Another unreleased cassette mixtape of mine, perhaps an unexpected style. I've always loved Chicago house music but most people wouldn't associate me with it. Anyway, I was in highschool and still have lots of love for these tracks by Armand Van Helden, Mood II Swing, Thomas Bangalter, Dubtribe, DJ Sneak, Nick Holder and many others. (Even a little Jello Biafra for ya!) All-vinyl, one take, some dodgy mixes too... recorded in Madison, WI in 1997.

Track IDs are pretty much from memory. If anyone can help with the missing track IDs, I'd be greatly appreciative. They're probably obvious ones... the track after DJ Sneak "Because Your Love Ain't True" and the track after "Funk Phenomenon".

Thanks for the kind words! Regarding that "When Doves Cry" remix with different vocals, no idea though I think Derrick Carter may have played that back in the day as well? I'd guess it's a private release by someone from Chicago/Detroit...

I want to pick your brain I've been searching for years for version of "when doves cry" prince. Ken collier plays it, it's the first track in this mix https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=DXRhp4_Ukoc I've been searching for years it's like it never existed!

I've been Searchin for twenty years now with your knowledge of these old trax - maybe you can help me - On DJ Traxx's Move mixtape what's the beginning track - he talks for a second in the introduction about it and he Calls it the Vader mix ?

Ooh nice, great tape, yeah I only had the 75-min version without that intro. Would love to put the full one up on Ravearchive when we relaunch. If you can hook me up with a download link, I can jack up the audio, can barely hear what he's saying at the beginning. I don't recognise the track, though... does he say "Vader" or "Invader" ?

Yes!!! Great catch - I used to play "Disco Swing" off that record a lot. Had entirely forgotten about it! Thanks :)

BTW the last ID is a re-edit of Patrice Rushen's "Haven't You Heard" but racking my brain to think about what record it came from...
