Various – Terry Farley Presents Acid Thunder, Original Acid & Deep House 1985-1991
Sampler 1 includes select tracks taken from Terry Farley's recent Chicago Acid House retrospective for Harmless. These samplers are geared towards the DJ's and vinyl lovers who may have missed these tracks first time around or to the new fans who have just discovered the windy city's own unique brand of machine funk and want to dig deeper! This sampler features DJ Rush's ''Lookin' For Excitement'', a frantic, snaking jack track of the highest order, one for the slam dancers - watch out for those snare drums! Also featured is Terrance McDonald's ''Mind Over Matter'', a deep, rolling electronic workout with building, epic synth lines and a jagged bassline that won't quit. Rounding out the EP in fine style is ''To The Motherland'', a tribal-esque percussion heavy cut from Steve Poindexter and Kareem Smith from '88.
