About this item
Nervous Records, the iconic label started by visionary father son duo Sam and Mike Weiss celebrates its 30th anniversary with an absolutely jam-packed selection of music. Comprised of both seminal & classic tracks from the label's archive, alongside brand-new remixes by some of its more recent signings, it's a brilliantly curated comp which shows the breadth of innovation this New York based label has enjoyed over its inspiring career. Literally every single DJ I know owns a Nervous record somewhere in their collection; whether it's the purist utterances of house music, soul-infused hip-hop or the early blueprints of what would become techno; the label's sincere and heartfelt approach to artists has nurtured an incredibly diverse and well-respected roster. Named after Louie Vega & Kenny Dope's 'Nervous Track' which would go onto inspire the London broken beat scene; their roster reads like a who's who of dance music royalty: David Morales, Tony Humphries, Roger Sanchez, Armand Van Helden, Kerri Chandler, Kim English, Byron Stingily and Josh Wink to name just a few!
Part two of the compilation sees much of the label's classic house tracks given a brand new remix by artists such as Adelphi Music Factory, Sarius Syrossian and Gerd Janson alongside older signings such as David Morales and Felix Da Housecat. Armand Van Helden drops a rawkus mix of Deep Creed's "The Anthem" whilst Kim English' soulful anthem "Learn 2 Luv" gets two flavoursome remixes by Ralf GUM and Mood II Swing.
Set across four discs, the tracks are all pressed at maximum fidelity making it totally DJ friendly too. A vigorously in-depth portrait of this most highly regarded of labels that we can't recommend enough.
Matt says: Part 2 of the 30th birthday celebration and Nervous take to the dancefloor with stone cold classics by Kim English and Byron Stingley given fresh outfits by a plethora of newer signings. A brilliant collection from the iconic label.
