    Just a disclaimer... I consider the early 90s to be a part of the 80s, musically. The 90's didn't define itself as an era until about '93. 90-92 are a strange zone, especially 91 and under, so yeah. Feel free to conform to this standard or hold your own. Actually lemme just change the title to be less weird.

    One thing I always noticed is that pre-'90 house and techno sounds "colder" to me. More minor chords, more synthetic sounds, a lot of melancholy... just something in the way the music was put together. Post '90, there seems to be more of a warth to it, more positivity, influences from new age nu-hippyness and disco-revivalism coming in, more live instrument samples.

    Obviously this isn't hard and fast, I'm sure there are exceptions.

    I'll be honest, all I know I know from a Hacienda compilation. I'd like to know more though...
