Review: Originally released on Shelter Records way back in 1993, the Atmosphere EP from US house icon Kerri Chandler remains a great example of the New Jersey producer's sublime touch when it comes to driving instrumental house music. Some 22 years on, this new edition from Shelter demonstrates the qualities of Atmosphere remain undimmed, put simply the four tracks possess a certain energy that is undeniably timeless. If house music is a feeling, then cuts such as "Climax 2" and "Atmosphere 2" prove that emotion is that feeling. A classic 12" that any self respecting house DJ needs in their collection stat!
Review: "I get deep, I get deep, I get deeper..." It's a sad by product of sample culture that Roland Clarke's 2000 house burner "I Get Deep" is not as well known as the tracks that have subsequently jacked his vocal, both credited and uncredited. For anyone wishing to strengthen their collection with US vocal house, this repress of the original Shelter release is a must have. All four versions of the track are prime examples of US deep house at its bumping best, though the combination of Clarke's booming vocals and jazz licked production from Shelter duo Freddy Sanon and Paul Simpson is very hard to top!
