The third instalment of King Street Sounds Kerri Chandler focussed "House Legends" series sees us digging into late 90's territory with the EP kicking off with "Harder Gets Higher", a stomping Garage groove with dope flourishes of live percussion, typically heavy on those swinging drums and the deepest bassline, all of the trademarks we've come to expect from the man himself. Following on is the heavyweight 6.23 club mix of "Grass Cutter" lifted from his "Trionosphere 3" release from 2000, serious Latin-esque drums cascade over one of the funkiest basslines out there to create a devastating club tool, a perfect way to shake up any dance-floor. On the flip we're treated to a pair of stellar Kerri remixes, Ananda Project's "Awareness (Kerri's Dark Dub)" kicks things off, a taut, driving piece of sultry, late night house featuring some sublime spoken word vocals from Mia Tuttavilla. Rounding out the EP in fine style is the gospel infused sounds of Carolyn Harding's "Pick It Up", as deep as it gets, uplifitng organ, piano and vocal led sweetness, this is pure HOUSE, one for the heads indeed. All featured tracks have been fully licensed from King Street, remastered and reissued with %100 involvement from the label. Essential House music for the seasoned heads and neophytes alike!
