About this item

Third and final EP from Eros, and it's another mindblowing four tracker of lost classics from the raw, decadent and formative birth of club music re-programmed for modern floors. This time the mysterious Eros focuses on pure Chicago house sounds from yesteryear. With the current obsession for slavishly retro reimaginings of a certain sort of Chi-Town sound (minimal, lush, strictly 808), it's nice to get back to original tracks here that have a certain amount of oomph to them. Track 1 features all the requisite Chicago house sounds (compressed bassline, squarewave acid, cheesy Korg M1 keyboard line, big fish little fish cardboard box groove, sirens... I reckon they just tried out all the drum machine presets on one tune!), plus a catchy vocal snippet. Track 2 sounds like Nitro Deluxe meets Inner City. Track 3 starts off typically house, then romps off on a disco-not-disco kinda slinky groove. Track 4 sounds like one of those late 80s Jive Bunny-esque sampladelic mash-ups featuring a whole host of underground house cuts - Italo or what?!
