'Mystic' Bill Torres is a producer that we feel deserves more props! A Miami born, Chicago dwelling artist who's output has gained total cult status among lovers of that deep, narcotic, late-night groove that he has made his own.
Bill's sound is everything that House music should be, it encapsulates the smoky after hours and throbbing dance-floors of darkened spaces where folks really get down. Fitting then, that a lot of Bill's music is seriously sought after by DJ's and dancers from all over, most of his records are at the top of the wants lists of House fanatics who truly understand the music. 'Classics from the vault vol.1' is one such record - Originally released on Cajmere's mighty Relief Records back in 1997 it wears it influences on it's sleeve proudly, track titles such as 'Late night at the music box' obviously reference where Bill's sound is coming from, but his style is completely original and crystallizes the energy and expression of Ron Hardy and Chicago's heady dance music history into something fresh and individual. In short, Mystic Bill is the shit and if you're not hip to his music you certainly will be once you get into this EP. 4 tracks of top shelf, late night weaponry right here - reissued with love and still sounding as fresh as it did on it's original release in '97! Take a 'Mind ride'!
'Classics from the vault vol.1' has been legitimately re-released with the full involvement of Mystic Bill Torres for 2017 and remastered by London's Curve Pusher from the original DAT especially for Mint Condition. 100% legit, licensed and released. Dug, remastered, repackaged and brought to you by the caring folks at your new favourite reissue label - Mint Condition!
