Armand Van Helden :: Rise Vol. 1


This mix is courtesy of Redlight Music.  Thanks to them we can listen to Armand back when he was playing deep quintessential early 90s house.  If you are interested in the back story check the article.  After listening to this mix the first time, it took me back to the times in DC when we used to go out to Tracks, Fifth Column, Serve (at Buzz), The Vault and ventured up to The Paradox in Baltimore.  These were the tunes that I used to record off radio from shows in Baltimore from radio stations 92.3 and 102.  Off the top of my head, DJ Spen, Mark Allen, Jerome Hicks, Ivan G, Ed Bailey, and 95 North come to mind... Come to think of it, there's too many DJs to remember.

Rather than me ramble on about how I love almost every track on this mix, just take a listen yourself.  If you have the time and want to know more, I'd suggest looking up some of these songs and artists on Discogs.  You owe it to yourself.
