Hong Kong Beat mobile disco puts on some 90s alternative rock for Tuesday Chill-out

The 90s were looked on at the time as a decade that you either hated or loved the different directions that music was developing in.

R&B had gone down the road into hip hop and rap, inspired in turn by social dissatisfaction and gang culture; pop and disco had evolved into europop, house music and the rave culture inspired by new age thinking and, well, drugs; while rock music had gone dark and grungy, inspired by whatever demons rested in the minds of the musicians.

In the rock World however, there was still something of a melodic vein, and sometimes more ambient chilled sound coming from the indie/garage and alternative rockers, often fusing sounds of urban music, with folk, pop and hard rock to create new, fresh sounds.

Hong Kong Beat takes a listen to some of these tunes for a 90s alt rock chill-out.
