SALES NOTES

Kerri Chandler. The Shelter NYC. Institutions. What else can be said about these pillars of the deep house community? Freddy Sanon's seminal club created a code for living, beyond the dancefloor. The ripples of which are still being felt today in dance music. The Shelter was a way of life, a sound, an ideology. 'The Shelter' was the clubs first release on it's foray into actually putting records out. To have KC drop the first record on your label was a coup to say the least, but this was actually another pivotal benchmark in an already fruitful, collaborative union between the super producer and the club / institution.

As expected the energy on this record is high, it's that deep church influenced soulful house music that kicks in all the right places! An ode to a very special, particular dance-floor and moment in NYC club history. A true blue classic of it's ilk, featuring all the classic KC details, tough drums, soulful vocal snatches and vamping organs and horns. Across 4 different mixes Kerri gives us a blow by blow flavour of what The Shelter may have felt like! Classic material from beginning to end. Do not miss this one!

This has always been a sought after 12" due to it's classic status and has often changed hands on-line for collectors prices. Now it is available again, re-mastered, re-pressed and re-released with permission and in conjunction with Shelter Records, New York City and featuring the original 1992 label artwork.
