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.
