Kerri Chandler - Atmosphere EP (Yellow Vinyl Repress)
Available: 7th May 2021
Deep house legend Kerri Chandler's mighty "Atmosphere EP" dropped in 1993 and still packs a punch today! A killer, heavyweight 4 tracker of deep Zanzibar, Shelter channeling NJ House music that has always been a big one among the DJ's, heads and dancers. Opener "Climax 1" is an organ driven, stomping groove with piano stabs sprinkled throughout managing to sound tough and subtle at the same time while it's partner "Climax 2" is an uplifting, old school leaning cut with vocal loops, samples and that unmistakable KC swing! On side-B "Track 1" kicks things off with some super, rock hard drums and horn samples woven through those blissed out late night synth sounds, one to get lost in! "Track 2" rounds out the EP in fine style and sounds a bit like Kerri is jamming with Mr.Fingers as the ubiquitous Juno bassline rolls out over some jazzy piano, lush pads, strings and claps making the "Atmosphere EP" a truly essential record with every track oozing pure class.
This has always been a sought after 12" due to it's classic status and has often changed hands on-line for collectors prices. Now it is available again, re-mastered, re-pressed and re-released with permission and in conjunction with Shelter Records, New York City and featuring the original 1993 label artwork.
