Mint Condition’s latest trip into vintage house territory comes from Mystic Bill, the Chicago-based Floridian whose produced some of the finest Windy City house of the late 1990s. Classics From The Vault Vol. 1 first appeared on Relief Records back in 1997, and has recently become something of a sought-after 12″. Naturally, it’s stood the test of time rather well. “Mind Ride” is a thumping blend of Ghetto-house drums, relentless electronic tweakery and psychedelic intent, while “The Struggle” tiptoes the fine line between jacking hypnotism and trippy, late night eccentricity. Flip for the loopy, proto-boompty warmth of “Jazz In Space”, where synth horns tumble down over and snappy drum machine groove, and the rolling deep house exoticism of “Late Night At The Music Box”.
