Tracklist & Description
Originally hailing from London Ralph picked up on the early New York transatlantic influence that swept the floors of the capitals clubs in the mid-eighties. In 1988 as Acid House exploded Lawson moved North to Leeds where he discovered clubs like the Warehouse that were also playing a mix of New York Hip Hop and Chicago House. Saturday night was sound-tracked by Nightmares On Wax , long before they had found fame and fortune, DJ E.A.S.E was busting their first hit Dextrous from acetate just as Ralph entered the hallowed doors. Greatly inspired by these nights Ralph went on to produce some early mix-tapes consisting largely of Nu-Groove, Big Beat, Dance Mania and DJ International records which landed him warm up spots at the club night Joy and led to a meeting with live act LFO. Ralph quickly found himself at the centre of a thirsty new scene that was rapidly expanding, not only in Leeds but unfolding throughout the rest of the UK.

His legendary pairing with the hedonistic Dave Beer came through mutual friend and Back to Basics co-founder, Alistair Cooke. Alistair had grown disillusioned with the rave scene and wanted to create a club that catered for the more discerning clubber. So on Saturday November 23rd 1991, Back to Basics opened its doors at The Music Factory - Leeds. The very first record; Marshall Jefferson presents The Truth Open Your Eyes was played by Ralph Lawson.
