Raw Chicago house tapes – Mixed by Jamie 3:26

House

The Chicago house explosion is such a storied chapter in the history of dance music that it can appear as though the potent creativity of that era has been captured and documented in its entirety.

Jamie 3:26 was there, and with the release of his A Taste of Chicago compilation the producer is now shining a light on the hidden southside basement scene that ran concurrently, undimmed by the spotlight on the wider city.

Here we find him tapping into the raw energy of the scene, mixing together tape versions and original pressings of rough, lo-fi gems. This is a snapshot of a very special flashpoint.
