ltd 2017 repress - without original sleeve
walt j has undoubtedly become a legend of the house/techno scene since his first release in 1995 on vigilante records. after 17 years of absence, m. jones is back and chose parisian imprint unlearn to share his unique style with the world. this ep sets another step to the unlearn foundation, underlying the founders thirst for eclecticism in electronic music.
we keep the curle-p subdivision for rare licenses of forgotten pearls from the past, with a new remix on the flip. the last one we did was thomas brinkmanns isch including the soulphiction remix, one of the essential records of 2009, also according to pitchfork. this time we picked walt js reborn, originally on detroit label dow in 1997 and featured by mr. juan atkins on his legendary mastermix.
and just like that, sounds of the city bring out a new walt j ep! the label is fast becoming recognised for its ability to force mythical house producers from chicago back into the studios after decades of hiatus, and we still don t know how they manage it! after brian harden s recent stormer, this three-tracker by the great walt j is just what we need to sooth our evenings a strong beat winds into starry melodies and forward-thinking percussion on test your limits, while simplicity (the atkins tribute) calls all stations to detroit and lays down some utter truth it s exactly the sort of house music we want to hear bald, fiery, and deep as hell. bypolar, on the other hand, is classic walt just doing his thing dope samples, heavy chords, and dusty drum swings. the quintessential house shit.
