Previously residing on old dusty reel-to-reels, Gene Hunt has unearthed some ace 80's chicago house treasures!

Gene Hunt began djing in 1986 at the tender age of 14, he quickly became the key DJ on the Chicago circuit and eventually being taken under the wing of the legendry Ron Hardy.  Many of the local producers gave Gene their new productions on reel-to-reel tapes, often rough cuts, homemade computer drum jams which never made it to final production at a professional studio. Included here are some artists early works dating back as early as 1982-1983.

The CD compilation features unreleased tracks by Mr. Fingers, Steve Poindexter, Ron Hardy, Farley Jackmaster Funk, Virgo Four, Virgo & Adonis, Steve 'Silk' Hurley and even by Dion, who later kick started Common's career and more recently has been Kanye West's sidekick. It also includes reworks and original versions that were never properly released, like Ron Hardy's original version of 'Sensation' or Gene Hunts version of 'Donnie' and Mike Dunn's rework of Gherkin Jerks' (Larry Heard) 'Acid Indigestion', or reworks of classic Lil Louis and Larry Heard tracks. These tracks were deemed not commercial (i.e. radio friendly) enough by labels such as Trax or DJ International, but were all the more popular in the Chicago clubs. These were the tracks that people lost their minds to and danced off their asses to, hence 'Chicago Dance Tracks'.

Some tracks have been edited down to fit the format. All tracks have been restored and remastered from the original, first generation reel-to-reel tapes. The artwork shows original Chicago flyers. Comes with with artist interviews, Gene Hunt interview by Jackmaster Farley and original photo's from back in the day!
