LETS DANCE RECORDS - MIKE MACHARELLO & DUANE THAMM JR - CHICAGO 1983-1985 (4XVINYL BOX SET)
4x12" Vinyl UK Pre sale
jerome derradji+still music are proud to present lets dance records mike macharello & duane thamm jr. chicago 1983-85. the origin of house music, at least in a commercial sense, is generally associated with young african american producers from chicagos south side, but one of the first chicago house music labels was started by a young, white, gay dj from the far west suburbs. the lets dance story will take you back to the beginnings of mike macherello and duane thamm jr. when chicagos house music was in its infancy. back then, after starting as young roller disco dj in the late seventies, mike macherello gradually made its way to the best radio station in 1981 wbmx and started a movement that still ripples through the city today.

J/ JACK TO THE LOST CHICAGO REELS (FRANKIE KNUCKLES MIX ) (CASSETTE / TAPE)
cassette / tape UK 23.04.18
real house music created by the founder of house music frankie knuckles for wbmx. real house music created by the founder of house music frankie knuckles for wbmx june 25, 1986. (a & b). back in august 2017, jerome derradji received a call by one of chicagos most renowned record dealer. it went like this: hey jerome, ive got all these reel to reel tapes of chicago house stuff. you want to take a look?” less than 24 hours later, more than 160 reels were purchased and safely hauled back to the still music office and jerome got to work. in fact, these reels - that were lost for more than 20 years - contain some incredible stuff that we’ll be releasing in the years to come but right now it’s time to jack! around 50 of these tapes are dj mixes that were broadcasted on wgci and wbmx in the mid to late eighties mostly with the hot mix 5. so jerome decided to start a series of cassettes titled jack to share the absolute greatness of these mixes (and to raise enough funds to finance the transfer and licensing of the more crazy stuff that’s in the stack of reels) here is our first series with mixes from frankie knuckles, steve “silk” hurley, chicago mystery - devastating daryl and a few unknown mixes that were too essential to skip. these mixes were played on the radio only once and were lost until today. this series is an absolute window back to the heydays of chicago house music. all the mixes were professionally transferred and remastered to the best of our abilities.
