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.
‘Feeling It’ takes you back to the original old school, with all the classic elements in place, it’s a house lover’s wet dream, 30 years after the fact. ‘Spector’ twists things up while keeping that pumping jacking groove a perfect intersection between then and now. ‘Scatter’ punches through the noise like a clarion call to arms.
Great toolkit. The bare and steady kick opening the A side will serve most useful for resetting the club-tone while keeping the hearts beating on the floor. The energy of B1 undergoes a couple of metamorphoses, quite akin to Defekt's output. And finally B2 ends with staggering and exhilarating electronics surrounding the center soothing pads. fsdlkjsbf
