The 138th (!!!) Ibadan Records installment comes courtesy of Kerri Chandler. Kerri was one of the many artists who benefited from Jerome Sydenham’s artistic direction. The two initially met in 1991, when Sydenham was a part of the A&R team that signed Chandler’s debut single to Atlantic Records. After Sydenham founded Ibadan Records in 1995, the two collaborated on several groundbreaking projects that stand as a testament to house music history and to their long-lasting friendship.
Chandler’s early career evolved through illustrious house remixes and productions. Tracks like "Drink On Me", "Shoe-B-Doo", "While We’re Young" and "Ain’t That a Bitch" truly exemplify the trailblazing and original innovative spirit of Kerri Chandler and the birth of his signature sound.
