I'm no historian and for sure don't claim to know exactly how House started. All I know from looking around and reading is that this record was the first documented Chicago House track ever put out on vinyl. Enjoy.
**This record represents what the original, raw unmixed, untouched no special effects House sound was. Chicago only had a handful of dj's in the late 70's early 80's that can truly mix as Kenny Jason is a perfect example. One day a dj wanted to create his own beats so he can play them in his set. I believe that guy was Jesse Saunders. I really believe that the mixup is that the term House was reflecting the music that was played by Frankie Knuckles at the "Warehouse". That music was more soulful stuff like Loleatta Holloway's Love Sensation. The music that Dj's were creating in Chicago was very simplistic and hypnotic. Drum machine, Casio/Roland keyboard, mic and maybe add a sampler. That was it. Maybe it shouldn't have been labeled as House. More accurately it should be reffered to as "Chicago House".
