Read the book and did the tour 13 years ago.. Its wasnt that dangerous tbh and was done with knowledge of the prison guards.... Pretty amusing that the tour guide tried to sell some errr merchandise at the end of it.

Bolivia is home to one of the most incredible sights on the planet - the salar planar - with its coloured lakes, volcanoes, snowcaps and salt lakes. Not many know what an astonishingly beautiful country it is. Probably my most memorable travel experience.

Yeah Jules, so I believe... Riding horses out over the salt flats like Clint Eastwood...on the bucket list cool

I have mates who went to that prison in the book...paid off 4 or 5 different guards, made it into the administration office then got kicked out by the chief after handing him close to $100, getting nowhere near the inside as promised...pretty hairy experience if you managed to get inside for the "official" tour by all accounts..

1999?

Prob need to go back a few more years mate

1998.  I'm not sure of any progressive house albums that were released before Sasha's San Francisco.

Nick Warren's Brazil was more a house/trance album that progressive house.

Happy to be educated

...to be honest matty, and it's no criticism of you, everyone is attached to the music that was around in their halcyon clubbing/E days, but I'd say that 'progressive house' as it was originally identified, was a completely different thing even by the time that Sasha's GU's came along. If anything this was 'prog trance' in comparison to what had gone before (I fucking hate labels too, but they do make some sense in this context)

I happened to really like that era of 'prog' too, was a big fan of BT, Bedrock, BIR etc., but quite honestly am not as attached to it as I am to the 92-94 period... mainly because that was the first time that the UK developed it's own house sound, that's not to say it was all home grown, but British DJ's were playing Strictly Rhythm garage dubs alongside Sheffield bleep/breakbeat tracks, and latterly, producers making tracks that specifically fit that sound, like Leftfield, Fabi Paras, Acorn Arts, tracks like Funkatarium's 'Jump', Eagle's Prey 'Tonto's Drum', labels like 23rd Precinct/Limbo, Cowboy, Guerilla etc. In this respect, Renaissance Vol. 1 is probably a better reflection of 'progressive house' than Sasha's GU's.

Dan is correct, Billy Nasty's JDJ is generally accepted as being the first progressive house mix CD.. there is also a superb (unmixed) comp called Progressive House Classics, which illustrated the difference between what I'm on about and Sasha era 'prog' much better than I could explain:

Top post that...time to waste an hour or two wrapping the ears around some of those mentioned above

I still consider myself a buyer of prog whether I'm buying from Innervisions or Bedrock, Sean- It's all based off that old sound....those who jumped on the Berlin bandwagon and used to turn their noses up at prog would balk at the thought of themselves as prog djs, I know plenty of them..

..didn't Beatport give it the name deep house just for sorting purposes anyway?

The people that you are describing sound like they weren't about in '99 to be in a position to compare.

No they were but they were playing Byron Stingily records and laughing at me when I dropped anything considered prog..

it does tbh

It's obvious to me, Dan...that Dixon retouch has shades of Albion - Air about it - same elements anyway but the BPMs are slower

Someone might want to correct me, but I am fairly sure that deep house evolved separately from prog, from a different route really (US style garage and even some tunes that got called 'handbag').

That sound didn't really evolve, Beijing. You can still find Miguel Migs et al playing the type you speak of..

The Roatan I went to in Honduras looked like this Loops. Wouldn't say it was rough.

Roatan is far from rough, it's where the expensive resorts are for the Bay Islands. If a local caused trouble with a tourist on Roatan they'd end up in a shallow grave (no questions asked)....very protective of their reputation compared to Utila or the mainland, which really is an unofficial warzone..

Why does one resort to calling someone a racist because that persons view does not fit in with their own premise and view? Racist is a mighty volatile word to be slanging around.

I had to wipe me eyes and pinch myself several times whilst reading this line...could easily see Tommy Robinson agreeing with this line of thought if I'm honest

"I'm not a racist, it's just my opinion."

For those who like their house classics....top mix cool
