sl011 is on its way! to celebrate our most beloved format we mix the old and new and bring together three artists we ve just taken on board with regular sl artist joey kay from chicago. special artists, special audience, special music, special release: 180 copies, 180 grams. nothing more. nothing less. pandilla ltd opens up the feast on the a side. a collective of three portuguese artists, this trio of producers-composers made a name for themselves through their distinctive minimalist approach to music. and what better way to introduce them than the very title of their track: -you get to know-. do meet the guys and enjoy. chicago resident joey kay was already with on sl001 and sl003. but why would we stop? here he is again with some new gems. joey s been producing quality and selective underground house music since the 80s, giving us each time delightful hints of what good chicago underground truly sounds like, far away from seasonal trends and close to his own philosophy instead. open up your ears and heart, as joey will be -trying 2 reach u- with his beautiful ode to the golden age of house music. the end is just the beginning, people. flip the record, start again, and let tommy guide you. tommy vicari jnr is an underground music hero well known for his singular and very unique sound. tommy plays by his own rules and tastes. he produces and releases tommy s kind of sounds and tommy s kind of sounds only, regardless how of far he needs to push the boundaries of his musical world to find the right beat and hit. -decided- is sl011 punchy bassline banger, in case you thought of falling asleep between both sides. for don t forget: true dancers always dance. almost the end, we know, but dry your tears, we re not there yet, no, no. harrison bdb aka harry weber is here with us for the last stretch and a final sonic hug - one to remember -. harrison s immersive approach to deep house has earned the man his credit, solidly grounded in the finest and deepest selections. the kind of selection, in fact, that d make anyone want that record again. mind you, this is probably what this last track -going back- is telling to do. ready? flip!

repress 2018, finally, i was able to be re-united with my father, rick (poppa) howard, in the studio again. he had two thoughts about the selections on this particular vinyl piece: >can your love find its way< is the track that laid out, and also, that he believed us to be blessed both in being reunited, and in what we were there to do. as my father continually offers me a knowledge that takes me time (sometimes years) to understand, i am very proud to offer this release to the world.
marcellus pittman s is back with his second ep of 2018 on his own unirhythm records. the jewel here is pittman s 2007 acidic masterpiece -there s somebody out there- getting the edit treatment from chicago s jamie 326, who whips the original into a hypnotic bender. -something like (a dream)- is an upbeat key-driven vocal house cut in pittman s flowing style with bits of vocals floating over the mix. -breathe beat- is a low key bouncer stripped down to the raw elements with floating synths hovering over a minimal shuffling beat
jump trax is another essential piece of early chicago house music crafted by the legendary duane thamm jr back in 1984. fusing together a myriad of influences including early 80s euro pop, italo disco and hi nrg, thamm jr was responsible for helping create and influence the burgeoning house sound that would emanate from the city all throughout the second half of the 1980s. not only were these sounds new and fresh, they were experimental too, jump trax sees the bpm s gradually shift throughout the duration of the tracks seamlessly giving the more adventurous djs out there more ammunition and room to experiment with styles and bpms. a truly visionary approach to production and all recorded and mixed within chicago s city limits by thamm jr at his reel to reel studio located in villa park, illinois. jump trax continues to be as influential today as it was back in 84, with many top dj s still citing the record as a go to, powerful indeed. chicagos still music are proud to present this fully legit, remastered and repressed piece of chicago house history. a truly pivotal record now made available again for 2018. essential sound for those who love the real deal snoozing not advised, og copies of this monster are hard to come by!
italian producer piero pirupa’s musical cv is nothing short of impressive. so it’s no surprise that his next production has found a home on damian lazarus’ crosstown rebels, enlisting the vocal talents of new york’s mr.v. influenced by the sounds of 80s and 90s chicago, pirupa worked tirelessly on this ep to reach a version he was happy with. after seeing the reaction from dancefloors around the world, he decided to send it to carl cox and damian lazarus. we must be (the piano track) breathes new life into today’s dance music with a message from a bygone era. it harks back to the golden age of house music with its lush piano topline and positive message sung by mr.v. happiness simply emanates from this production. with lyrics such as “we must be all in this together, we must live to respect one another” and “this is the plan to make us unified” it takes clubbing back to a time when everyone came together on the dancefloor regardless of race, gender, sexual orientation or religion.

by the time the jungle brothers rapped about it in 1988, house music had been bumping in nyc clubs for years. even though the genre would go on to become a global phenomenon, house music had humble beginnings in predominantly gay and black clubs in chicago. musically, house music was inspired by the eclectic dance records played by djs frankie knuckles and ron hardy at clubs like “the warehouse” and “muzik box”. with a growing club scene, labels like trax records and dj international played a major role in the development of the genre. founded in 1984, trax was an important outlet for house music in its early days, releasing many classics including -no way back- by adonis, larry heard s -can you feel it,- and the first so-called house anthem in 1986, -move your body- by marshall jefferson. this latter tune gave a massive boost to house music, extending recognition of the genre outside of chicago.
