Some musical genres have an everlasting impact: all subsequent rock and pop bears something of their influence. Others just vanish: once their time has passed, it's as if they never happened. So it was with handbag house, which bestrode the charts in the mid-90s, the glittery, shallow sound of Britain's mainstream dancefloors. The big American house hits of the era - De'Lacy's Hideaway, Ultra Naté's Free, Robin S's Show Me Luv - seemed to inherit their emotional pull from the dance music of the 70s, sharing that weird, ineffable melancholy that lurked in even the most ostensibly euphoric disco anthem.
