The Best Dance Albums of the '90s
Thu 11th Nov, 2010 Lists and Guidesin
#10 Air – Moon Safari
While Cassius and Daft Punk were at the helm of the French touch movement, Air showed a different side of the coin with Moon Safari and its languid, organic electronica vibes, an LP they’ll always be remembered for.
#9 Chemical Brothers – Dig Your Own Hole
It was on their second album Dig Your Own Hole that the Chemical Brothers officially hit their stride, carting out tune after tune of memorable dance music with the help of Schooly D, Beth Orton and even Noel Gallagher.
#8 Underworld – Dubnobasswithmyheadman
Album openers don’t come much more epic than Dark & Long, and it’s only the start of Underworld’s dive down the rabbit hole. If this doesn’t get you raving, hope is lost.
#7 DJ Shadow – Endtroducing…
DJ Shadow’s sample masterpiece Endtroducing… was a true game-changer in 1996, and one of those albums that continues to resonate in electronic music.
#6 Leftfield – Leftism
There are few debuts that have earned the status of Leftism. The Leftfield album catalogue may not run deep, but it’s nothing short of formidable.
