    ‘This Is How It Started' focuses heavily on the early days of the Chicago sound, especially in the formative years at Ron Hardy's Music Box.

    Following Chicago's Disco Demolition Night in 1979 the genre's popularity fell dramatically, hence fewer disco records being released.In this era Chicago's DJs such as Hot Mix 5, Hardy, Knuckles & Jesse Saunders played a variety of styles mixing in Italo, electronic pop music, electro-funk and older disco joints often playing their own edits which focusing on the portions of the songs which always rocked the dancefloor. At the end of 1982, when
    DJ Frankie Knuckles left the Warehouse to open the Power Plant, Ron Hardy started to DJ at the Warehouse's new location until owner Robert Williams renamed it The Music Box. In 1984, a local label released a 12-inch single called "On and On" by locals Jesse Saunders & Vince Lawrence who had simple made the song in order to replace a record which had been stolen from Saunders' collection, the "On & On" bootleg disco megamix by Mach. Hence Chicago House Music was born and a modern day phenomenon followed.

    The direction of this new compilation was to delve deeper into the early sound that fired Ron's eclectic vision and to harness this within todays scene, bringing in not only artists from the original Chicago era but also the DJ & producers who have been influenced by those halcyon days.
