ID Magazine 1988 - Get Up Get Happy

In 1988 there were no dedicated professional dance music magazines because at this stage there wasn't a dance music scene as we've come to know it today. Yes, House music had reached London in 1985 / 86, but nothing which could be defined a scene. It was the rock and indie magazines that first brought this issue into the mainstream and we're pretty sure they didn't see it developing into the multinational music scene spawned by that mild annoyance Acid house. ID was a grassroots edgy industry journal with the ability to make and break music / fashion careers.  It was a buffer between hardcore rock magazines such as NME who absolutely hated anything produced electronically.  I have loads more articles that i will be posting so be sure to SUBSCRIBE / ADD ME / RSS FEED...
