cassio ware digging back into the past for this new cut on on dope wax. as usual, kenny dope is the man in the mix, with the classic vocal from chip-es >like this< pitted against the bassline from esgs classic, >moody<, and some quality synth lines on an old school gem of a track for the house crowds to drool over. on the flip, that superb bassline is left to be star attraction along side those great synths on a bumping house instrumental.
all tracks written and produced by siler & dima, le loup voice by chez damier

brewster tells the story of the influential 80s house label, from the pioneering early works of frankie knuckles, chip-e and fingers inc, through the timeless anthems of joe smooth, farley jackmaster funk and sterling void, to the hip-house of fast eddie and tyree cooper.
