Big Shot Records Retrospective Sampler 1

About this item

The first part of various artists samplers featuring numerous gems from the Big Shot archives.

From the vaults of seminal Canadian house label Big Shot we're proud to present a fully legitimate and remastered selection of classics and obscurities from the labels enviable catalogue and the masterful crew of Nick Fiorucci, Komix & co. Leaning on the late 80's and early 90's output of the label and featuring cuts from some of the first releases. Amy Jackson, whose sultry 1989 jam 'Let Me Loose' is a class example of the deepest vocal House done right kicks off proceedings, followed by Jillian Mendez's classic 'Don't Know What You're Missing', another '89 vocal burner punctuated by classic piano's and synth lines. These tracks are the real deal! On the b-side we are treated to In-Dex's classic 'Give Me A Sign', a perfect blend of Freestyle attitude and early House atmosphere that hits the spot just right. Finishing this essential collection of tracks is Dionne's tough and classy 'Come Get My Lovin', another classic Komix production that rolls nice with stepping drum machines and smooth organ riffs. All in all - this EP is an old school House heads dream right here, essential cuts from end to end.

Keep an eye out for more high quality Big Shot reissues, all remastered from the original source materials and with the full involvement of the rights holders. A collaboration between Above Board distribution and Big Shot records, Canada. Remastered by Optimum Mastering, Bristol UK. 2018.

STAFF COMMENTS

Sil says: Beautiful and soothing proto house by Amy House and a more dancefloor oriented offering by Julian Mendez, In-Dex and Dionne. The sound quality is superb and it is always nice to see the artists getting their fair share of copyrights. A very well-rounded first instalment in this new reissue series.
