Legendary House label Strictly Rhythm celebrates 25 Years with compilation

Celebrating a landmark anniversary the legendary house label, Strictly DJ T.: 25 Years of Strictly Rhythm is a new mix album celebrating the rich musical history of Strictly. Mixed by Get Physical founder and long-term Strictly fan DJ T., Strictly DJ T.: 25 Years of Strictly Rhythm includes tracks from seminal Strictly artists including Logic, Aly-Us, DJ Pierre, Hardrive, DJ Sneak, Wink and many more, with a brand new edit of each track provided by DJ T. himself. T’s love affair with Strictly Rhythm began in 1990 during a transitional period both as a DJ and a club goer, from black music and broken beats to early electronic dance music. This was the year that T. purchased his first Strictly record – Logic’s ‘The Warning’ – and was immediately hooked on the pioneering sound of the label. The tracklist for the two distinct mixes are made up of the some of the label’s ‘big hits’ and some of DJ T.’s personal favourites: records that have flown under the radar like Audioclash ‘Live And Dide’ and the Whipped and Turned Mix of Reality Check's ‘Fantasy’: two fantastic yet perhaps underappreciated records that T has brought back into the limelight. To make the mix flow seamlessly, T. has edited each of the records included from the often tricky to work with originals. “These old tracks don’t really have a mix-friendly intro and outro; they often just fade out or stop abruptly” says T. “I wanted to make these classics easier to use in contemporary sets. “To be able to improve a track, so that it becomes interesting and playable for DJs nowadays without changing its essence, that’s my motivation.” Strictly DJ T.: 25 Years of Strictly Rhythm is out 01 March (vinyl) and 08 March (4CD / Digital) on Strictly Rhythm - order from iTunes Tracklisting: CD1 (Mixed) 1.
