01 Shèna – Let The Beat Hit Em (Orginal 12″ Mix)
Fresh House Flava 1, which was released in 1998 and i was only 9 years old! I played it at a recent boiler room gig and the people responded wildly it still is a big track in South Africa like most tracks from back in the day.
02 Mood II Swing – All Night Long
One of the greatest classics in the scene, one of the most amazing things about classics like these is that you can play them anywhere in the country here and you still get a crazy response .
03 Musaria – Moments (Atjazz Vocal Mix)
The legendary atjazz made his mark in South Africa with this tune, it trended everywhere before trending was a thing, it was the golden tune that injected him in the scene and cemented him as one of the house music Gods in South Africa!
