Import magazine, Underground News, first appeared in the racks in October 1992.
Although the magazine was based in Cleveland, USA, they had a team of columnists reporting from around the world - France, Japan, UK, Italy, Canada - so the mag was also keeping a close eye on what was happening on the dancefloors globally.
The music it covered was house, acid jazz, techno and street soul mostly, and featured stuff like record label lowdown, artist profiles, record reviews, clubbing updates and charts.
The item under the magazine cover above was a winners list Underground News had compiled showcasing their choice of the best music of 1993, published in an issue dated January '94.
One of their selections was new group, Wall Of Sound, who were not only an act but also a production team called Mood II Swing.
So I have taken one of Wall Of Sound's products from my collection to accompany the piece - a 4 track EP released on the superb Eightball Records label.
