EDITORS’ NOTES

House music as we know it would be unimaginable without Strictly Rhythm. Since 1989, the New York label’s mix of tribal percussion and atmospheric soul has set the tone for peak-time floors the world over. That dichotomy is at the heart of Hardrive’s anthemic “Deep Inside,” and Mood II Swing’s remix of Ultra Naté’s eternal “Free” strikes a similar bargain between the earthly and the divine, balancing jacking drums with gospel-inflected vocals. For more psychedelic pleasures, Josh Wink’s “Higher State of Consciousness (Tweekin Acid Funk Mix)” is acid at its most mind-melting.
