Taking it back to 1995 for this Desert Island Album entry with Second Light by Dreadzone. This album combines country walks with hazy afternoons at the coast, string instruments, vocal samples and electronic composure that all feels very rooted in English heritage and culture. A lovely blend of heavy dub baselines and 90’s breakbeat capturing the energy and euphoric sound of party culture in its prime. I’m all too gutted that I missed out on the 90’s rave era; a time in which dance music was fresh, alive and minus the selfie culture that packs the dance floors today.
This album still stands up 20 years on, if you haven’t heard it yet I would urge you to check out it out!
