From mainstream electronic dance that seemed a direct descendant of disco to the more demanding European beats that fuelled the rave scene, there was a fracturing of the nightclubbing in the 90s, with venues catering more directly to specific audiences and tastes.
It was the decade of Britpop of rave and of grunge, and who could expect those completely separate strands to share the same dancefloor?
It follows then that any play list professing to cover the decade in just 24 songs is always going to give rise to argument and debate.
Nonetheless, we have put together a playlist of tunes that got pumped out of speakers at nightclubs cool and not so cool across Scotland.
