I believe this Ernie Munson mixed tape, of early house and techno, is from 1992 based on the tracks in the mix.

Either I’m getting old or I need to pare down my record collection to a point where I don’t spend an hour obsessively searching for track titles. I managed to dig up three off of the B Side but I’m calling it a night and leaving the rest to the more determined.
