Out now: Mutant Beat Dance – Let Me Go
Chicagoians Traxx and Beau Wanzer team up for an- other Mutant Beat Dance re- lease. Together they have produced ar- guably ‘the best 80′s Chicago house re- cord not made in the 80′s. The Mutants call it Jakbeat, inspired by the early days of house music.
‘Let Me Go’ is as intense and rhythmically inclined as they come. Naughty Wood’s sparse vocals cry desperation, almost nearing insanity, which makes up for a pressure cooker like warehouse anthem.
‘Rottonfunk’ is another intense work out which has a killer groove and makes us wander off to the Promised Land (wherever that is).
It is delightful to hear that Chicago house music this good still gets made. Surely if it was
released way back when, it would fetch top dollars on the interweb. Authentic stuff!
