This is the kind of ideal DJ tool showcasing all the genres en vogue in US dancemusic at the time of producing: a bit of Frankie Knuckles here, some Todd Terry or early MAW there, a bit of Chicago and also hip-hop and freestyle. Very raw and minimal mostly drum tracks with massive kicks and a sparse quality in the production which still sounds loud and rockin some two decades later. The cut of choice would be imo "The Real Garage", ideal set starter with piano drops echoing sounding like a rawer Joe Claussell a few years in advance.
