Born from the friendship between Luke Solomon and Derrick Carter, Classic is above all else a family label. Creating a platform for artists to satisfy their artistic intentions with left-of-centre house creations, this release sees Classic return to its vinyl-only beginnings for Volume VII of its Label Sampler series. Kicking off the A-Side, Felix da Housecat and Chris Trucher’s label debut from earlier this year storms through the speakers, as the wonderfully eccentric cut is given an edit by long-term member of the Classic fam Honey Dijon. The glorious sunshine sounds of Carlo’s ‘Perfect Plan’ comes next, where disco, house and funk merge together on this delightful dancefloor number. On the flip Texan producer JT Donaldson’s blissful groover ‘Stay Inside’ is joined by ‘Music’, where Classic co-founder Luke, Bristolian powerhouse Eats Everything and Lord Leopard (aka Luke Turner) combine their West Country forces for an absolute party-starter of a record. This sampler is the perfect dose of Classic’s signature grooves that are always full of character, and with all tracks previously unavailable on 12” is not one to be missed.
