Lobster Theremin presents the label’s inaugural full-length: a double LP from rising Chicago native Chicago Jim. Jim’s synthtopian tales of old-school Chicago and the birth of house music are a genuine reflection of a talent re a genuine reflection of a talent rarely seen at the helm of records in the post-00's.Upon first listen, these are the sounds culled from lost DATs and forgotten tapes, with moods drawn from another time and place, referencing Larry Heard's Alien and the ability of early house pioneers ability to enrapture and engage.“Perhaps this is an over-romanticized notion, but I'm also really into the idea of people from all walks of life coming together under one roof to lose their minds together on the dance floor” the artist says. “If you aren't down with that you aren't a real head.”Across eleven tracks—made using a Roland 808, 707, and 202, Juno 106, MPC 2000, and a Microkorg —we are treated to not only Chicago house, but also early acid, Detroit techno, ambient, synth, slow juke and proto-booty works without the filthy lyrics, but still steeped in American attitude.
