This week’s update to Mixmag’s Overlooked Classics playlist on Spotify features a collection of deep and rhythmic house cuts from the depths of dance music’s vast history, featuring legends like Mr. Oizo, Audio Werner, Inland Knights and more.
It would be a crime to call any of the artists listed above as being overlooked, as all are iconic and influential artists who helped shape the dance music industry with their distinct sound profiles. That said, revisiting their early work provides a glimpse at their development into becoming leading tastemakers.
‘Kirk’ off Mr Oizo’s debut EP titled ‘#1’ is a quirky, wonky track that still possesses an effective dancefloor style. Throughout Oizo’s career he’s pushed the boundaries, but here we get a snapshot of the French innovator’s early work. Also found within the new update are early releases by Martin Landsky, Retroflex, Solar House and more.
Follow the playlist on Spotify to stay connected and be sure to check back for weekly updates occurring every Thursday.
