Strait II DAT aka Ronald Burrell (of Burrell brothers fame) dropped this scorching 4 track EP of Garage House pressure way back in 1993 and here in 2014, it sounds as fresh as ever.
"You're In Da House" kicks things off, built from an insistent bass led groove laced with jazzy vibes and horns and a tough edge that just keeps going, a perfect peak time cut! "I Did This 4 Da Shelter" is Ronald's tribute to the long running NYC after hours clubbing institution and is a storming vocal and sax led anthem that keeps it super deep.
On side-B "It's 3:00" is the epitome of late night / early morning House music as the title suggests, a bass heavy, melodic track dedicated to the people and the DJ's still going (or just beginning!). "Electric Native" finishes the EP, a darker, tribal vibe permeates the track with percussion and dubbed out vocal chants, this one's a real "heads down" cut, one for the dancers!
A killer EP all round and a real treat for fans of the Burrell brothers sound, a real underground rarity that has been re-mastered, re-pressed and re-issued for the very first time in conjunction Nervous Records NYC, Complete with original label artwork.
