MR. FINGERS

Mr. Fingers

Amnesia - 2022 Reissue

    Limited repress of this classic early sound of Chicago, featuring pretty much ALL those amazing tracks produced by scene-defining protege: Larry Heard. It's mind boggling to think these tracks were produced in 1989 (!!!). "Can You Feel It", "Washing Machine", "The Juice" etc. Too many to mention! If anyone can match the perfection of "Can You Feel It" I'd like to know. Tracks like "Beyond The Clouds" and "Slam Dance" sparkle with a forward gazing sheen; sounding futuristic now - some 33 years later! One of those albums that kind of puts you off trying to make house music - it's simply that perfect!

    Painfully difficult to acquire a mint condition copy, this brand new reissue has solved the crackly C/D side issue that plagued the last repress and sounds beautifully clean and crisp throughout - the perfect medium for Larry's incredibly emotive and visionary masterpiece. Probably one of the best house music albums ever conceived. Every home needs one!

    Matt says: Deep house blueprint by the legendary Larry Heard produced some 33 years ago and still sounding timeless today. Quite simply one of the best house albums ever made.

    Chicago house royalty Mr. Fingers returns on his own Alleviated Records imprint with a brand new album!!! Larry Heard continues on the path he's set with "Cerebral Hemispheres" in 2018, encasing his luxurious deep house workouts with influences from jazz, gospel and ambient.

    The delicate percussion lines that have become synonymous with the producer, especially on his "Electric Blue" series have reach a higher level of clarity and propulsion; effortlessly ushering you through fluffy crowds and dreamy horizons. Lead lines and chord progressions to melt hearts flow through the ten tracks like emotive butter; there's few that engage machines in such a spiritual and communicative way as Mr. Fingers.

    Vast, expansive arrangements, perfectly plotted through this imaginary soundscape; the LP takes you on a deep, vivid journey rich with exotic nuances as Larry explores Eastern scales and far-away timbres. There's even some moments of Balearic island bliss; lolloping waves and drifting vocals adding to an air of coastal decadence.

    In short, a beautifully realized, sophisticated and picturesque long player from one of house music's longest serving and charismatic players. Highly recommended!

    Matt says: Another stunning album from the Chicago house godfather. Maturing nicely, this might be his most musical and diverse offering yet. Containing plenty of 'proper' songs - with writting vocal parts, musings into downtempo and Balearic are fully realized showing the vast breadth of musicality contained within this singular producer. Languid and relaxed, it's a noticeable divergence from the urgency and energy of the dancefloor and will make superb living room listening.

    Cerebral Hemispheres

      Piccadilly customers, house music inclined Mancunians, the whole of Chicago (surely?!) and WHP attendees will have known about this for some time now - but that hasn't quelled any anticipation or excitement - yes you heard right - THE FIRST MR. FINGERS ALBUM IN TWENTY FIVE YEARS!!!!

      Take a breath...

      Famous as one of the most important heads in dance music around the world, Larry has enjoyed a successful career as a producer, remixer, collaborator, vocalist and DJ spanning 35 years. Out on his own Alleviated Records, "Cerebral Hemispheres" features 14 new pieces of music that allows the listener to fully immerse themselves and dig deep into Larry's musical world. Often regarded as one of the brightest stars to shine on deep house music, Larry's alter-ego Mr. Fingers has rarely put a note wrong across an illustrious and expansive career. Lucky for us, the fingered one has decided not to change the formula tooo drastically, so it's full of rich, textured piano, delicately played congas, dreamy xylophone licks and swinging house beats. There's a touch of Latin flavour, a stupendously rich and varied palette plus an advanced musical structure, owing itself to proper 'songs' than repetitive beats n trax that litter the modern day house scene. Larry's gone and brought home the bacon pop pickers, showing every mutha f***a how it's done in 2018. An imperative release. Every home needs one!
