This record needs no introduction! One of THE most classic House records ever made! The legendary pairing of Frankie Knuckles (RIP) and Jamie Principle delivering two devastatingly ahead of the curve anthems; "Baby Wants To Ride / Your Love", both still sounding as fresh, vital, original and contemporary as they did on their 1987 release. Truly one of the dream pairings in modern dance music, the Knuckles / Principle team brought us many classic moments but the two tracks contained here are among the most recognizable and well loved tracks in the House music lexicon. Often sampled, covered, edited and re-worked, but never, ever bettered here are two absolutely essential cuts, re-issued as they were released originally in the late 80's on Trax. Re-released for 2015, re-mastered and re-pressed with all the original Trax label artwork present in conjunction with the official rights holders / owners.

Trax launches a new re issue series "Chicago Trax", which delves deeper into the archives to unearth more 'lost tracks' from the legendary Chicago house label.
We kick off with Le' Noiz "I'm Scared" (TX103 - 1985). Jesse Saunders' second release on Trax, this time assisted by old playground cohort Duane Buford and sounding more like a house record. With its heavy-ass snares and tom-tom work, it's not unlike his later effort on Jes Say : "Real Love".\
Next up we have Jack Master Funk / Jack Master Dick "Jack The Bass" (TX104 / 1986). It took till the forth release on the label to find the sound that we'd come to associate with Trax and it was provided by that man of many guises Farley 'Jackmaster' Funk, under his porno guise Mr. Dick. Suck my what?!
On the flip we have the only release by Ron Hardy under his own name, it's fitting he should appear on Trax, given the amount of support he gave to numberous releases. Featuring the voice of Adrienne Jett (wrongly written as Adrian on the label credits), who also contributed backgrounds to Jamie Principle's 'Your Love'., this was co-written by Vince Lawrence. Apparently Larry Sherman produced it, whatever that might mean.

Red Vinyl Repress!

Every home should have this record from the 2 of the originators of deep House! Virgo 4 were kicking out the most melodic, fathoms deep, complex emotional machine music before anyone else (them & Larry obviously!) had caught up with them & the "Do You Know Who Are?" EP from 1989 is as flawless as it gets, often imitated over the years but never, ever bettered! Every single track on this slab of wax is a classic! Virgo manage to reach right inside & take us somewhere on every cut while maintaining an otherworldly sense of melody & rhythm, some of the playing on this record is incredible & so accomplished, "In A Vision" for example still sounds like it's beaming right at us from the future while "Take Me Higher" carries it's stately, Reggae-like vibe along smoothly while retaining enough bounce to keep the floor locked in. Basically, "Do You Know Who Are?" is an almost perfect record. You need it. It's the truth. Fully re-mastered, re-pressed & re-released for 2015 in it's original format with the permission & participation of all rights holders with all original Trax label artwork intact.
Frankie Knuckles - It's A Cold World / Bad Boy
Frankie Knuckles
It's A Cold World / Bad Boy
12" | 1987 | EU | Reissue (Trax)
10,99 €*
Release:1987 / EU – Reissue
Genre:Electronic / Dance
Another slice of essential Knuckles / Principle magic, here the duo's love of Italo and Euro pop records seems to collide with Chicago's darkened dance-floors and raw drum machines. Perfectly sleazy and insanely danceable, Jamie Principles voice was made for Frankie Knuckles pristine productions and their unique styles compliment each other endlessly, Both tracks featured on this 12" take us into the subterranean night life of Frankie and Jamie's world, a world of yearning, heart-break, love and acceptance. A huge pairing of tracks on their initial release and still to this day some 25+ years later, "It's A Cold World / Bad Boy" was a total game changer, almost verging on pop but too "outsider" to gain the mainstream attention it so deserved, the record stands today as a true classic. Truly ahead of it's time. Re-released for 2015, re-mastered and re-pressed with all the original Trax label artwork present in conjunction with the official rights holders / owners.

Release:1987 / EU – Reissue
Genre:Electronic / Dance
Phuture only released a handful of tracks (plus an album a full decade after their debut), but have remained a legendary act in the development of Chicago house for their stomping 1987 single "Acid Trax", the track that began and defined the acid house sound. The group was formed by DJ Pierre, synthesizer fan Spanky and Herb J in 1985 as a recording entity to produce records for Pierre to mix into his sets at several crucial Chicago clubs. After being turned on to the high-pitched squelch of the Roland TB-303 synthesizer (marketed as a bassline machine for solo guitarists), the trio emerged from the studio with a track they called "In Your Mind". Ron Hardy previewed the track at his legendary club the Music Box - where it became known as "Ron Hardy's Acid Track" - and Phuture re-made the cut with production by Marshall Jefferson. Released on Trax Records in 1987, the single created a dividing point between the Chicago sound before and after it, with hundreds of "Acid Trax" imitations flooding the local market. After it caught on in Britain as well, the single soundtracked the wave of club madness which coalesced in the rave movement by the end of the decade. Re-mastered for 2014 and re released in original 1987 artwork. Released in conjunction with Trax / Harmless.

"Love Can't Turn Around" is a Chicago House ANTHEM! A true classic of the genre. Universally recognized and loved, it made history as the very first House record to reach the UK singles charts in 1986 and continues to find new fans today. Inspired heavily by Isaac Hayes' underground Disco smash "I Can't Turn Around", a record that was very big in various Chicago clubs getting plays from DJ's like Ron Hardy, Frankie Knuckles and more. With "Love Can't Turn Around" Farley and Jesse re-appropriated Hayes' Disco vibe and updated it with drum machines, synths and of course, Mr.Darryl Pandy's unique vocal performance centering around the desperation of a lover who has been wronged. A truly influential track that opened the doors for many producers and DJ's in the decades to follow. Here, for the first time, the definitive mixes of this all time classic record are available in one place. Re-mastered and re-issued in conjunction with Trax Records this essential Chicago record lives on. "Now this is how it started"
