A I Fear The Night (Subterranean Mix)
B I Fear The Night (Fear The Dub Mix)

This is my current favourite Chicago record. This record has all the hallmarks of an 80s house classic: slightly flat vocals, cowbell overdose and repeated use of the word “jack”. Underground can pretty much do no wrong when it comes to releases. Thankfully they managed to get a timeless track out of Tyree Cooper before his Hip House phase. Jack on the box!

Adonis / No Way Back

A No Way Back (Vocal)
B No Way Back

One of the major records that helped kick off my late 80s Chicago house and more specifically Trax Records addiction. It is not possible to dislike this bassline. Not humanly possible. No matter how many times I listen I still cannot get over the fact this was created in the 80s. On one hand it knocks me off my feet to realise how ahead of its time Chicago was, on the other it makes me a little depressed to see how little music has changed in over 20 years.
