‘Summer of Love’ celebrates and recognizes the cultural movement of “acid house” in the summers of 1988 and 1989. Released under the New State music record label, ‘Summer of Love’ is a 3CD mix album that showcases both the talent of Paul Oakenfold, Nancy Noise and Colin Hudd and the rich history of acid house.
‘Summer of Love’ features game-changing records from house originators Frankie Knuckles, Marshall Jefferson, Phuture, Fingers Inc and the No.1 single from Steve ‘Silk’ Hurley, ‘Jack Your Body’.
The talented DJs: Paul Oakenfold, Colin Hudd and Nancy Noise are each given the chance to showcase their talents on CD1, CD2, and CD3 respectively. Leading off the pack Paul Oakenfold (considered the number one most influential DJ of all time by London Evening Standard) takes tracks from Sueno Latino, The Residents, 808 State, and many more in his quest to showcase the groove of acid house.
Next up is Colid Hudd, taking the hip house sound of the Jungle Brothers, Fast Eddie and Jungle Crew and mixing it seamlessly with acid house & rave classics from Quartz, Rhythim Is Rhythim, Bizarre Inc, Orbital, and many more.
To wrap up the compilation, Nancy Noise recreates the classic Ibiza style sound taking hits from The Cure, Art Of Noise, Shakatak, Men Without Hats, Yello and more eclectic cuts from It’s Immaterial, Thrashing Doves and Stretch to create a panoramic soundscape of sound.
