It’s been 30 years since that day and the sound first introduced by the Label back then is now coming back as strong as ever, mainly rediscovered by those who lived through that era and the younger generation in love with dance music and House Music in general.
Among those who wrote the history of the Italian House scene, the one and only Carlo Troja aka Don Carlos was definitely at the helm. In 1991, Irma Records released it’s first single Alone, which immediately became a cult record for British DJs but mainly American DJs. Its particular soft and ambient sounds defined a genre that was then called Paradise House.
And it is from this very sound and from this great DJ that Irma Records begins the celebrations for its 30th anniversary, offering some classic cuts from it’s catalogue carefully selected by DJ Don Carlos, trying to dig between some of this music style gems, and especially some tracks that were always played in his glorius DJ Sets but were less popular at the time of their releases.
The compilation comes out as a Digital version, a Double CD, both formats including 22 Tracks and a triple vinyl version that includes 18 tracks.
Among the artists and producers that make the final selection: Ricky Montanari, Flavio Vecchi, Claudio Moz-Art Rispoli, King Britt, Angelino Albanese, Danny Losito (Double Dee), Francesco Farias (Jestofunk) and artist names as Riviera Traxx Key Tronics Ensemble, Subway Ground Master, Love Nation, Nu Model, Aritmya, Centric House, Deep Aural Penetration, Outphase, House Of Blue, Omnivores, Montego Bay, Underground, More Heavy Soul, The Loop Experience, Soft & Loud Music Enterprise and TFM.
