This is one of the best "deep house" records I've ever heard. I originally bought it on a wim at a record show. Unfortunatly it was so crackly and ruined that it was nearly un-usable till I put insane amounts of grooveglide on it and played it with a needle that was weighed down. It managed to clean out most of the crap that was in the grooves. I think the previous owner spilled beer all over it! I eventually found a sealed copy for sale here and now I'm happy. The big tracks here is the Industry Mix and the Underground Mix. Before I go into them let me say this is a bit of a cross over record. Its not quite what I would call "Deep House" and its not quite "Rave" or "UK Ardkore". It's a bit of both! The Industry mix sounds like Rhythm Section or Psychotropic but toned down even more. It's a slow low down breakbeat tune that you could play in a set with Rhythm Section "Coming On Strong" and Jimmy Jam & Terry Louis "The New Style", its that kind of thing. I would really like to know more tunes like this, it captures that sexy NYC 4am rave vibe like you would hear in Hardware "Let me be your fantasy". It has those choir rave keys along side sexy saxophones, I just love the aesthetic of this sound! The other side has the Underground Mix which has more vibey strings and less breakbeats. I think this version works better in a house set. The other one worth mentioning is the Latin Mix which has the breakbeat that Ray Keith used in his Chime Remix and nice Spanish influenced keyboards. It's nice in its concept but the sound quality of this tune is unfortunately not great, even on a mint sealed copy. This record is just great though and I'd like to hear more like it. Marco Rosales's follow up record (Get it right) on this label is similar though it doesn't have breakbeats. I'm really a sucker for this 1991 ravey saxophone NYC style "house music", it gives me such a warm fuzzy feeling in my soul.
