ltd 7 - release of the house music classic --
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.
another example of marshall jefferson s unassailable genius in the late 80 s, as he moved effortlessly from raw jackin gear through to redemptive vocals. nowhere near as famous as its predecessor -7 ways- on dance mania but arguably better. re mastered for 2016 and re issued in conjunction with trax.
the second jungle wonz release on trax, again with harry dennis gorgeous vocals, was sub-licensed to both new york label vendetta and breakout in the uk (both subsidiaries of a&m), with some fine remixes by former area resident justin strauss. -this was one of the first house songs i ever heard when i was like 14- recalls felix da housecat. -marshall jefferson has been a huge influence on all my basslines. people usually think that basslines come from 80 s pop bands but they came from marshall jefferson. marshall jefferson is probably the best house producer of all time for this period.-
chicago legend marshall jefferson gave the world many classic records over the years including this influential proto-deep house gem way back in 1986, helping to solidify a blueprint & sound for numerous producers to come in the following decades. his work as jungle wonz always went deeper than most, steeped in soul & emotion, way ahead of the game & incredibly advanced for the times. *the jungle* is no exception, a blistering, melodic journey, the perfect vision of house. repressed & remastered for 2015 & featuring all original label artwork, with permission from trax records *the jungle* is now available again to be rediscovered, a truly essential record that stills sounds as fresh & contemporary today.
RIDE THE RHYTHM (RON HARDY & FRANKIE KNUCKLES RMXS)
12" Vinyl UK01.04.15
marshall jefferson, ron hardy & frankie knuckles collaborating across 2 sides of a single 12inch need we say more? obviously that s a dream line-up right there & of course the results of such a meeting of minds is nothing short of outstanding! just listen to the record & you ll see! essential business... -ride the rhythm- came out on trax in 1986, making it one of the -first wave- house records to land & make a massive impression here in the uk & in europe. marshall jefferson s fingerprints are all over this bad boy, his massive piano riffs, non-stop bass-lines, the pounding drums, everything about this record is just huge! he had an incredible knack for making accessible, club tracks with cross over appeal that the underground heads clamored to get hold of at the same time. throw frankie & ronnie (literally) in the mix & you ve got solid, classic, all-time gold on your hands (& turntables!). fully re-mastered, re-pressed & re-released for 2015 in it s original format with the permission & participation of all rights holders with all original trax label artwork intact.
currently causing quite a stir on the underground, the jerome hill remix of marshall jeffersons s trax classic lost in the groove is a complete re-interpretation, solid jacking (hard) house music using the original vocal that s cut loud onto the vinyl and worms inside your head and has been doing serious damage in the clubs and festivals last year. now with all licensing and red tape cleared away, it s set for release. dancer boom boom is actually a collaboration between acid legend adonis and sidney winters, with a mix down by house legend frankie knuckles. this sat on the b side of am a dog on trax records and is rare & obscure to say the least, but once the needle touches the groove you know it s a killer. massive kick drums and mysterious organ scales, this one is a mad mad tune ! produced in 1987 (and sounding like nothing else from that year) it s been given a very slight and very respectful re-arrangement by jerome hill, remastered and cut super loud. strictly limited and if the previous titles on the label are anything to go by, this one will sell out equally quick.
the truth (feat marshall jefferson), one of the standout tracks from matt tolfreys debut lp, word of mouth, sees a full single release with additional remixes from gerds geeeman project and john charnis.

raindance dates back to 1988 when it was produced by marshall jefferson and featured byron stinglys distinctive falsetto voice. however, despite being intended as the follow up to the classic i cant stay away it never ended up seeing the light of day due to contractual complications involving another artist covering the song.
