As London DJ/producer/label boss Bob Bhamra (a.k.a. West Norwood Cassette Library) leads up to the release of his 8 Track Cartridge EP for Hypercolour early next month, the man has been sharing free tunes and sizable previews of the music set to drop. The latest of his offerings is a brand-new mix which finds Bhamra giving an aural history lesson of house music spanning from 1988 to present day, and we thought this would be an ideal way to cap off our holiday week before we return to our regular posting schedule on Monday, December 2.

With just as many tunes in its tracklist as years, West Norwood Cassette Library's podcast for Dummy touches on vintage cuts and modern classics from all permutations of the house spectrum—tunes produced by the likes of Hardhouse, Acid Junkies, The Rhythm Project, Mood II Swing, Cajmere, Kerri Chandler, Karizma, Terrence Parker, and Blawan—over the course of 75 minutes. The whole thing can be streamed and downloaded for free below, where its chronological tracklist can also be found; a quick Q&A between Dummy and Bhamara can be read here.
