Gene Hunt – Feeling It [MNSX010]

One of the founding fathers of Chicago house, himself a grandson to a DJ and frequently alongside other greats such as Ron Hardy on the decks, Gene Hunt summons a 3-tracker for the Midnight Shift label. True house and techno direct from the source and in his own words, a rather ‘jungly’ take of it due to the tracks’ chaotic percussion.

VA – From Chicago To Detroit V2 [DOFTD2-9]

There’s something delightfully simple about the formula behind Descendents of the Deep’s From Chicago To Detroit series, which predictably aims to bring together top-notch deep house from the Windy and Motor cities. This second installment begins with JF’s previously unheard re-edit of Gari Romalis’ 1995 cut “Butcher’s Choice”, a righteous lesson in bumpin’, New Jersey-influenced deep house. It’s followed by a typically emotionally-rich Larry Heard dub of Jordan Fields’ 1994 cut “Lifted My Soul”, before Maxi Aubert combines Heard style analogue deepness with rich, Motor City electronics on “Message In The Box”. Elsewhere, there’s a new JF edit of Gene Hunt’s throbbing 1987 jack-jam “Native”, and a wonderfully broken chunk of techno/house fusion from Africans With Mainframes.

Gene Hunt – The Chi-Town Connection [BB007]

Richard Rogers’ Black Booby re-edits return with BB07, which sees Chi-town original and Ron Hardy protege Gene Hunt -a Black Booby veteran from BB04 – digging out more vintage DAT dopeness on the double-A-side; which features raw-as-hell analogue house workout ‘1015’(a take on the Dion & Tony track from his ‘Chicago Dance Tracks’ collection on Rush Hour back in 2011) alongside the very aptly-named (and appropriately drum-fuelled) ‘Dr Roland’. Meanwhile on the B-side you’ll hear UK house music OG Terry Farley sharing production duties with another 90s house veteran, Stuart ‘Stretch’ Silvester. ‘Play House’ (Original Mix) is a synth-heavy jacking houser with serious dancefloor intent; plus check out the ‘KKlassik Mix’ by another Chi-town don, K’Alexi Shelby, who chases the original headlong down a dark alley littered with emotive samples and thumping keys.
