May 24, 1991 - Zammo and Jacqui Morrison at Rhumba, Roxannes
Recordiing from the Rhumba Party at Roxannes in Perth Scotland on May 24th 1991 with DJ's Zammo and Jacqui Morrison behind the decks.
Manchester and London are cited as the hot beds for the cross cultural fusion which led to the explosion of dance culture, yet Glasgow and Scotland had their own hand in propelling the movement. With Mike Grieve putting on a dedicated Chicago Acid night in Aberdeen as early as 1986 called Acid Jax, at Video Plex in Aberdeen with female DJ Jacqui Morrison, the touch paper was well and truly lit north of Hadrian’s Wall.
In Glasgow’s Sub Club, Graham Wilson and Colin Barr would drop Chicago tracks (the latter at his cheekily titled Zoom night) whilst DJ Harri at his Beatbox night would play house mixed up with rare groove and soul in the vein of Pickering’s mirrored activities in Manchester.
Glasgow followed Manchester and London very close on their heels - ID magazine’s annual of ’88 had three Scottish nights in the top ten clubs of the UK, i.e. Black Market, Ecstasy and Slam.
