I am proud to introduce to BLOG51 a new music forum.  HomeOfHouse.  HOH is a forum dedicated to bringing you the best in House and Dance from it's roots way back in the glory dayz of Disco through to the pioneers of H.O.U.S.E and the DJ's that make us move on todays floors.  If you are a fan of the DJ sets in BLOG51 then you will find something to grab you in here.  We are a friendly bunch and want like minded clubbers, ravers and Househeadz to join us for discussion, sharing music and generally enjoying all that is good about our scene... extra's included!  

Our site is about participation, to access the full site you will need to join in the discussions and be willing to share.... Our Mods are fair and friendly (I think!) but we don't want leechers and people there to grab and sell, we take time to rip, upload and share our music often at a personal financial cost... fairs fair!!  So drop by, say hello, introduce yourself and take time to read the rules and join in... it's worth it...

David Morales 1990 @ Haçienda, Manchester

I have been away from here for far too long.  Life events, trials and tribulations and the birth of my new son took me away but never that far away that the Haçienda left my thoughts... The new nipper likes the mixes too, this being one of the first he heard!!!

A special mix now for you all.  I could not find a flyer for this mix, nor could I get an exact date but this mix is special. If you can shed any further light on this I would love to hear.   

This mix has never been shared before.  I know of one person who has a copy and this mp3 is from the original tape.  Unfortunately the quality is not 100% but it is a slice of clubbing history.  Remember where you saw it first.  Having said that it is going to be posted in our new music forum 'HOMEOFHOUSE' after this.  Stop by and say hello.

Morales was influential for many reasons and his productions, remixes dominated the Haçienda floor for much of 90 -92 and beyond.  it was unfortunate that there was an altication a couple of years later as his sets truely suited that huge hedonistic space - the Haçienda - enjoy folks

If you do decide to post this on Soundcloud, Mixcloud or any forum, give BLOG51 some credit.... you know it makes sense :O)

There is no better day to pick up the BLOG51 again other than to say happy birthday Haçienda! 31 today. To add to the celebrations are sets from the 12th birthday party. First up - Friday the 20th saw part 1- DJ's Sasha and Digweed graced the decks.  This set celebrates a deadly partnership and gave us a taste of the duo who were later to take the US by storm. Dubby progressive beats and house gems rained down on us that night, starting off 2 nights of Faç love and celebration.  the atmosphere was electric and prepared us for a gem of a Saturday night.... part 2!

Tom Wainwright 1995.04.15 @ Haçienda Manchester Easter Weekend

This was a great weekend.  House and disco classics across a 3 hour set.  Donna Summer, Gina Stewart, Frankie Knuckles all mixed to give us one thumping set.  The beauty of Haçienda nights on bank holidays was that Tom And Graeme often stepped away from the more upfront cuts to rummage through the crates pulling out classics to give a true party atmosphere.  Some true Haçienda anthems here, Bump's 'I'm Rushing' and Madonna's 'Vogue' mixed with personal fave Donna Summer's 'Melody of Love' just make me wish I could re-live those nights all over again.  Gotta love a bit of disco too!

Greame Park 1993.04 @ Radio 1 Hot Mix with Brothers In Rhythm & Sasha

A little taster for a double pack tomorrow (Easter Sunday).  This is a hot little mix from 3 off the biggest names in clubland at the time.  Graeme Park just delivered tasty treats time after time.  Such was his influence and such was the pull of the Haçienda that he was invited to play on Radio 1 by Pete Tong.  Friday and Saturday's were essential listening back in the day, they certainly provided us with our soundtrack for the weekend, Pete played the most upfront cuts, inports and white labels - so far ahead of the game thta set the template for dance on radio  for years to come.  Graeme plays another of my favs, Eddie Flashin' Foulkes 'Turn me Out' pure class loved this in The Haçienda.  Thanks to Brady for the original share and the track list, it is a great set.

Graeme Park & Mike Pickering 1990.01.19 @ Haçienda Manchester Nude

For me one of the defining sounds can be heard in tracks like Jillian Mendez's 'Dont Know What Your Missing' this dub is phenominal and to hear that simple piano hook in the Haç used to send the floor into a hands in the air frenzy.  Coupled with Ricky 'Get Down' Garcia 'Put Your Hands Together' another personal favourite, Carltons 'Do You Dream' and you have the makings of a perfect night - as always in the Haçienda

Tom Wainwright 1993.05 @ Haçienda Manchester

The first of several Tom Wainwright that I am adding to BLOG51 over the next few weeks leading up to Easter.  This has been on my stereo system all morning.  Gritty US House with funky vocals.  Tom was headlining on a regular basis around this time with Graeme off playing venues like Decandance, Renaissance and Ministry Of Sound.  You can hear why in this set, building with instrumentals, a few more commercial elements and pure solid US vocals and dubs.  Excellent stuff for a spring morning.

Mike Pickering 1991.07 @ Haçienda Manchester Shine

I was listening to this one today whilst cooking and thought as I haven't had a Mike Pickering set for a while on Blog51 That I would list this.  The track list alone is excellent, possibly July Possibly August.  Often I get asked if I preferred the Saturday night or the Friday night?  If I was totally hoest I would say the Nude nights when it was both Park and Pickering but Saturday nights were our night as I loved the vocal house that Parky played but having said this, this set is a fine example of why we did both a Friday and a Saturday in 1991 if we could.  To be more exact it would have been a Wednesday, Friday and a Saturday!  Friday's weren't as glitzy, more dress down and sweat affairs.  

This set contains a few of my favourites too, Optik's 'The Chance' needs to be in everyones' vinyl collection, a dream to blend in and out behind a vocal to build a set, Yolanda's excellent 'Living for the Night', and many of us did, cheesy I know but totally true,  Arthur Baker's Let There be Love' and the wicked 'A Roller Skating Jam Called Saturday's' by De La Soul to name a few.

Feel free to download and experience a Friday 'Shine' night at the Hacçienda

Graeme Park 1993 @ Haçienda Manchester Tape 2

I don't know the exact date of this one, to be honest I don't remember much about 1993 except that we were spending our clubbing moments in between Venus in Nottingham on a Friday and the Haçienda on a Saturday.  This set is dirty simple as that.  Pumping vocal, deep house and garage that flows relentlessly.  Definitely a set to be played late at night.  If anyone can let me know roughly what month it was from it would be appreciated.
