Madhouse number 2 sees Kerri dropping his 4 track 'Panic EP' on us, released in 1992 the whole record sounds amazing today - As fresh as ever! Driving, funky, stripped back and with that trademark KC drum programming 'Get On Up' kicks things off with an intoxicating mix of all the above and some loopy, dubbed out sax.. this one is pure heads down late night business! 'Insomnia Again' utilises some choice samples the eagle eared among you will no doubt spot, paired with epic piano stabs and a cavernous kick-drum, slamming! Flip the record over for 'Something Wrong', a solid grooving, gospel-esque monster that hits hard, classic! Finishing out the EP is the amazing 'Love Is Over', undoubtedly inspired by the Garage and Zanzibar with it's nod to some classic cult killer Disco jams that form the basis of the track, looping, raw and moving hard, one for the heads! Rarely do you get such a well rounded EP of different versatile flavours, exactly the reason why Kerri is rightfully a legend in dance music. Essential stuff indeed.
This is the one of the first of a series of official Madhouse / Kerri Chandler reissues for 2017. Every title has been remastered by Kerri Chandler himself, from all original sources and each reissue has been legitimately released in full conjunction with Kerri and Madhouse records. And, as if that wasn't enough, all the reissues will be coming in the classic Madhouse records house bag. Snoozing not advised!
