This slamming piece of early 90's NJ Garage House still works today! The very first release on the iconic Madhouse Records imprint, produced by the mighty, legendary Kerri Chandler and featuring the raw vocals of James 'Dreamer G' Gordon this classic 12" bears all the hallmarks of that unique KC sound, it's all here - The drums (the drums!), the percussion licks, the deep(est) pads and that trademark swing (on everything!). The perfect balance of the rough and the smooth, booming out of the speaker stack like the track was made only yesterday. Across 4 different mixes showcasing all the moods, vibes and styles that the track is oozing. Fans of 'proper' House music will be all over this, whether long time followers of the man like Kerri or new to the game - Either way, this is some essential reissue business! You need this basically!
This is the first of a series of official Madhouse / Kerri Chandler reissues for 2017. Every title has been remastered by Kerri Chandler himself, from all original sources and each reissue has been legitimately released in full conjunction with Kerri and Madhouse records. And, as if that wasn't enough, all the reissues will be coming in the classic Madhouse records house bag. Snoozing not advised!

Madhouse Records returns with a new EP from Fred Everything, entitled ‘L’Art de la Retenue’ and featuring three originals from the Quebecois artist.
Montreal, Canada based Fred Everything is a stable in the contemporary deep house scene, with a back catalogue boasting material on the likes of 2020 Vision, Freerange, Local Talk and Drumpoet Community as well as helming his own Lazy Days Recordings for the past decade and a half. Here Fred joins the roster of Madhouse Records with his latest collection of soul infused house cuts.
‘Paradiso Petrudo’ leads, laying down a raw, swinging drum groove, crunchy bass stabs and a circling filtered chord sequence throughout while the latter stages ease in an airy resonant synth line and hazy atmospheric vocal chants.
Opening the b-side is ‘Lesson In Humility’, stripping things back to shuffled organic drums and cinematic strings alongside an amalgamation of bumpy bass hits, synth shots and bright piano chords. Last up is ‘Imagination & Determination’, taking things even deeper courtesy of hazy stab melodies, soaring vocal chants and fluttering strings atop a robust drum groove.
