5 Minute Read

Nyra guides us through a playlist of excellent 90’s dance nostalgia.

Adonis resident Nyra is a bit of an underground hero – an eclectic DJ with a deep understanding and knowledge of House and Techno across many years.

His label Canoe was an outlet for a lot of his own music and became a buy on sight imprint when digging and collecting records with a lot of his music finding its way into the bags of some of the biggest and most idolised DJ’s.

He’s released material on the likes of Secretsundaze, Never Learnt and E-Beamz amongst others.


As a DJ he digs deep and commands dancefloors with precision. We asked him to pick out some of his favourite nostalgic cuts from the 90’s.

See below:

Liquid Son - Rainfall

“Groovy bass, psychedelic tones and a whispering of sweet nothings.”


  • Liquid Son - Rainfall

    “Groovy bass, psychedelic tones and a whispering of sweet nothings.”


  • The Beloved - The Sun Rising

    “Lush vocal stabs and pads as the sun rises on an Ibizan beach.”


  • Coco Steel & Lovebomb - Feel It

    “Being from Sheffield it was only right to include this one from the Steel City’s Warp Records.”


  • Fortran 5 - Love Baby (Haze Mix)

    “Sexy spoken vocals and a chuggy bassline, whats not to like!?”


  • Jakkata - American Dream

    “Samples one of my favourite songs from one of my favourite albums, Thomas Newman – The American Beauty Soundtrack.”


  • Madonna - Bad Girl

    “Biggg fan of Madonna! Memories of this blasting out of my Mum’s Toyota Celica car.”


  • Everything But The Girl - Missing (Todd Terry Club Mix)

    “Amazing original version but the Todd Terry mix is the one. He was on a roll in the 90’s remixing some of the biggest names that still stand the test of time today.”


  • L.U.P.O - Hell Or Heaven

    “The track title says it all. You decide :)”
