BIG SHOT

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.

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.

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

Part 2 is yet another treat and fresh selection of Big Shot sure-shots. Following on from the initial sampler this one is chock full of classics from the label, every house (head) should have one! Mr & Mrs Dale's all-time anthem 'It's You' kicks things off in fine style, this one truly is a classic and those opening bass notes tell you all you need to! Strap yourself in. Also featured is How II House's 'Time To Feel The Rhythm' - some killer piano driven House moves courtesy of the man Ron Allen from way back in '89, showing that Canada was bringing the heat too! Over on the flipside How II House appear again with the 'Acid' mix of 'Unlock The House', another spoken word jammer that does damage. Jillian Mendez appears again, rounding things out, with her 'EZ Mix' of 'Get up' from 1988, another slick piece of Freestyle driven vocal House, perfect minimal production frames Jillian's vocals perfectly and will keep the dancefloor moving! Top notch business all over here!

STAFF COMMENTS

Sil says: 'It's You' is a sublime piece of early house filled with variety and an infectious bassline. Perhaps the most chilled of these four beauties. How II House and Jillian Mendez are proper dancefloor material. Few times I say there are no fillers here. This is one of those occasions. Buy on sight.
