Product Details

Summary

Strut presents an all new compilation placing the spotlight on early house music and acid emerging from the UK during the mid to late '80s, 'This Ain't Chicago'. Compiled by respected DJ / producer Richard Sen (Padded Cell, Bronx Dogs), the album celebrates the heady era when UK producers were responding to the first wave of Chicago house and documents the underground clubs that first championed the music - as the early rave scene and acid house kicked in at London clubs like Shoom and Spectrum, deeper and darker house nights thrived like RIP at Clink Street, Confusion and The Jungle and in warehouse parties around East London. Manchester too adopted house music at an early stage, most famously at The Hacienda's Nude night. As well as an in-depth look at the music and the accompanying scene through the DJs and producers that were there, 'This Ain't Chicago' investigates media and clubland's attitude to the emerging sound during house music's early days, as early resistance from London's rare groove and hip hop scene gave way to an explosion of dance music and rave culture. Musically, the album draws on both underground classics and lesser known tracks including early outings by producer Julian Jonah, A Guy Called Gerald, Trevor Fung's Playtime Toons, Eddie Richards and Ian B's Rio Rhythm Band and Baby Ford. The compilation also celebrates a host of excellent but short-lived UK DIY labels including Ruby Red from West Midlands, G-Force out of Essex, Rhythmbeat, Chill and Catt.

"This album features many personal favourites and the tracks were particularly inspirational to me as a DJ and clubber at the time," reflects Richard Sen. With current productions drawing heavily on early house sounds and production techniques, this album brings to light many previously unsung classics from the UK underground, still sounding as vibrant and relevant as during the early days of house.
