Vernon Kay takes you on a nostalgic trip back to the 90s dance floor with music and memories to get you moving, on BBC Sounds.
From legendary Ibizan super-clubs to the carpeted floors of the Bolton pub scene, Vernon is bringing back dance bangers from the decade, sharing memories and anecdotes along the way with warmth, hilarity, and heaps of nostalgia.
Vernon Kay says: “Wow! This is the start of something huge. To be given the opportunity to take a nostalgic trip back to a 90s dance floor is a dream come true. The 90s influenced me in such a unique way. A decade without “social”, a decade of change and revolt. 10 years of reckless abandon that puts the 60s into the shade.
This was a decade that was defined in the mosh pit, the chill out room, the refectory and most importantly the dance floor. Let me take you on a Champagne Supernova of repetitive beats that Girls and Boys won’t be able to resist moving to, in the living room, the workplace, or the bathroom getting ready for a night out! The 90s were epic, the music was definitive, the stories outrageous but the dance floor was always full!”
Playing the very best Dance, Electronica, Techno, Trance, Drum n’ Bass smash hits from the 90s, each week, Vernon will bring a new club mix of unforgettable floor fillers, and will induct a new dance music legend into the 90s Dance Hall of Fame.
The first episode spotlights icons like Fatboy Slim, the genius behind bangers like ‘Right Here Right Now’ and tells the story of how he produced his first album using an Atari ST and floppy disks.
Vernon Kay’s Dance Sounds of the 90s is available from 5 August on Back To Back Sounds: Radio 2 90s on BBC Sounds, and broadcast weekly on BBC Radio 2 from 7 August.
