2 discs of sublime house music from maybe the rawest & most eccentric of Chicago's mavericks.

After the red-hot popularity of 80s Chicago house (as presented by labels like Trax and DJ International) subsided, and Hip Hop took over, Chi-town labels like Dance Mania, Clubhouse, and Cajmere's seminal Cajual Records stoked the embers of their home town's dance scene. Pushing a stripped-back, rougher edge, influenced by acid and jacking house, as well as banging out some classic-status deep vocal house, the material Cajmere / Green Velvet (real name Curtis Jones) produced or A&R'ed is testament to a second, sometimes-overlooked wave of Chicago house.

This comp features both the classics ('Percolator' in a beefy remastered form, 'Brighter Days', 'Feelin' Kinda High'...) and the obscure gems from the label's founder and figurehead, as well as some monumental records produced by or featuring artists like Dajae, Glenn Underground, Gemini, Jamie Principle... Over the past 20 years, Cajmere's had a couple of questionable moments, but this is a must-have look at a keystone of US dance music!
