About this item

Omar S reissues Marc Pharoah's Detroit house classic "Soul Sounds 3" which was originally released on Mad Mike's Soul City label and currently demands large figures second hand. It's not wonder as there's few records epitomize that lo-fi swing n shuffle that characterises the best of the early US house blueprints as well as this.

There's plenty of producers who utilizes the combined magic of the Akai sampler plus some choice Roland drum boxes. Pal Joey over in New York, Glenn Underground in Chicago, and of course, much of Omar S' selected FXHE roster over the years! But these three tracks ride ahead of the pack. Pristine samping with just the right amount of Detroit grit left between the cracks. Drums fizz and splat, not overbearing and never loosing focus on the groove. For fans of this sound, it doesn't get much better than this!
