About this item

Trax pull the rabbit out of the hat and reissue the greatest house record of all time, complete with the iconic centre label that defined dance music for so many years. Actually, let me change that, "Can You Feel It?" isn't the greatest house record of all time, it's the greatest record of all time. End of. The heartbreaking combination of those huge emotive pads and that stunning square bassline have changed lives for nearly thirty years now, and I don't think they'll ever stop. This is a magical record, perfect in its simplicity and subtlety, with Larry Heard's masterful syncopated percussion giving you a different nuance every time you hear it. Stunning! And there's more! Back in '86, Trax had the dancers in mind and bumped "Can You Feel It?" to the A2, giving the floor oriented "Washing Machine" top billing. Officially the first record Theo Parrish ever bought, and an enduring classic of the Chicago house scene, the pyschotic and hypnotic force of "Washing Machine" is just as powerful now as it was back in the day. Considering he'd already delivered the defining peak timer and end of nighter on this single, I guess old Larry thought he may as well nail the after hours game as well with the blissful deep house of "Beyond The Clouds", a mellow and melancholic nodder with all of his trademark touches present and correct. Musical perfection for £7.99, sounds good to me.
