Earlier this week we covered Chelsea Louise Berlin’s fantastic book Rave Art which celebrates the flyers and invites that defined the acid house era in the 1980s and 90s. The article was a huge hit, bringing back some fond (and maybe quite hazy) memories for many readers, so with that in mind it was a no-brainer when it came to choosing this week’s Friday Mixtape.
At the back of the book Chelsea lists 50 Tracks That Made The Party Jump and so here is a selection of 12 of the tunes Chelsea holds up as the best of the best.
