  1. Vega,Farley,Knuckles,Humpries,Hunter,Morales,Soul 2 Soul......lots of great names on this list. Looking at their list today it's hard to believe that they ever acknowledged soulful dj's. Perhaps they should have discontinued the magazine after '93?

    It's actually interesting how many of them are still big names today. I wonder how many of the current top 100 will still be around in another 20 years. My guess is not very many.

    What a sweet find. Thank you for sharing!!!

    I've got this old vinyl of Basil Hardhaus on NuGroove listing off names, sorta like this. When I found it (second hand in Baltimore), it turned me on to so many names and sounds familiar to my ear, but new to my eyes.

    I also listen to country music, from the modern pop-schmaltz to the early carter family stuff, and it's funny, early house always reminds me of the fresh-from-appalachia stuff. Minimalist, soulful, torn-edges-vibe.

    90's forevah! Haha....
