Prins Thomas, Gerd Janson, Luke Solomon and others will share their closely guarded tracks on a new compilation due out this fall.
Over the past decade or so, Brewster and Broughton have a made a career out of chronicling the history of dance music. In 2000 they co-authored Last Night a DJ Saved My Life and last year released an anthology of the acid house fanzine Boy's Own. As its title suggests, their new CD collects obscure or unlikely tunes that DJs love to drop at just the right moment. For many jocks this sort of thing is absolutely confidential, but Brewster and Broughton got a few of them to talk, including Prins Thomas, Luke Solomon and Running Back boss Gerd Janson. Selections range from obscure post-punk to classic house gems, with artists like Suede, Nubian Mindz and Scottish singer Jesse Rae all making the appearing. The compilation will see release via Brewster and Broughton's own DJ History.
