Graeme Park 1992.02.01 @ Haçienda Manchester
1992 was an excellent year as a clubber at the Haçienda. Packed dancefloors, same punters week in week out and the music was phenominal. Residents Tom Wainwright and Graeme Park built a sound and style that only a resident could. They knew their crowd, they knew how to build a set and they knew what tunes fuelled that cavernous nightclub building it to boiling point. Instrumentals, dubs and vocal house and garage pumped across the infamous dancefloor. If memory serves me correct, the Haçienda, by then had become a little more studenty, designer clothes replaced jeans and a t-shirt and the tension from darker corners of the club was disappearing. People were coming to Manchester from all over the country for a night out. I felt that although the ecletic freshness had now gone from the scene - rave now being billed as dead! - that the scene had developed into styles and what better style than can be heard in this set. Download, listen, put on those old battered trainers, your old destroy top (if it fits!), your white levis with the disco sludge around the hem and let yourself go! TURN IT UP!! and you will know what i mean!
