one of the founding fathers of chicago house, himself a grandson to a dj and frequently alongside other greats such as ron hardy on the decks, gene hunt summons a 3-tracker for the midnight shift label. true house and techno direct from the source and in his own words, a rather ‘jungly’ take of it due to the tracks’ chaotic percussion. ‘feeling it’ takes you back to the original old school, with all the classic elements in place, it’s a house lover’s wet dream, 30 years after the fact. spector twists things up while keeping that pumping jacking groove a perfect intersection between then and now.scatter punches through the noise like a clarion call to arms - where are all our jacks and jackies at report to the dancefloor, please.
moving to a house formation, the fourth release from midnight shift combines the forces of detroit veteran terrence parker with small german hometowner simon hinter, plus an additional remix by turkish philogresz. covering the spectrum of the ever-evolving genre from classic to techy, jazzy to deep, it’s one for both the recently initiated and original house music lover.
