Jerome Derradji shines a light on the highly influential eighties chicago house Sunset label - including rare, unreleased and all remastered tracks - along with lost pictures and artifacts spread in a gatefold DLP and in a 23 page booklet. 

Matt Warren, Miguel Garcia and Ralphi Rosario, got together to join forces with the already established Sunset Mobile Disco - owned by brothers Alex and Robert Rojo - to create a new record label as an outlet for their productions. In the following 4 years, Sunset Records Inc. released some of the most groundbreaking Chicago House records, mixing New Wave, Disco and Industrial influences with "beat tracks" and a huge amount of talent expertly scouted by Matt Warren & Miguel Garcia. While largely remaining in the shadows of larger labels like Trax and DJ International, the metamorphosis of Sunset Mobile Disco into Sunset Records Inc. perfectly illustrates the wide range of influences that gave Chicago’s dance scene its unique sound.
