CLASSIC VINYL SECTION
Cajmere Featuring Derrick Carter – Dreaming EP
“The dreaming E.P”, was one of the first releases of the veteran label Cajual Records. This vinyl, from 1992, contains a gem called “Dream States”. It was produced by two big names of the Chicago House scene; the owner of the label, Cajmere and Derrick Carter. A short and overwhelming bass line dominates the track, supported by great background vocals, a touch of garage on the drums, and a very intelligent sequence. These are some of the reasons that made it an absolute classic underground deep house song.
Label: Cajual Records – CAJ 203 | Format: Vinyl, 12”, 33 1/3 RPM | Country: US | Released: 1992 | Genre: Electronic | Style: House, Deep House
Tracklist A1 – Dream States | A2 – Dream States Dub | B1 – Wet Dream | B2 – Last Cup Of Coffee
Isolee – Beau Mot Plage (Original Mix)
…is a great track, but which one I want to talk about here is its outstanding “Freeform Five Reform Parts 1&2) Remix”. The combination of elements from the original song, such us the bass line, the drums, the synhts, or some guitar riffs, keeping those in a similar way, merged with a symphony of new sounds added, including a female chorus, a plus in latin drums, piano chords, beach ambient sounds, and distinctive and awesome flute solos. As well it’s remarkable that, in despite the song has a duration of over 10 minutes, the perfect arrangements and its brilliantly thought sequence, with breakdowns in the correct moments, make us enjoy it completely and the time passes quickly.
Label: Playhouse – 36 | Format: Vinyl, 12”, 33 1/3 RPM | Country: Germany | Released: 1999 | Genre: Electronic | Style: House, Deep House.
