Without revealing too much, this tasty sampler is a prequel to some very nice things ahead. For now, we can treat you to two Music Box inspired edit tracks. ... TIP!First up is Derrick May's edit of Let No Man Put Us Under. An edit that he did in the late 80s, which was directly inspired by his trips to the Muzic Box, where he would hear Ron Hardy play the song. The edit only existed on an acetate, from which this recording was made, and marks a remarkable moment in dance music. One which marks the direct influence that Chicago had on Detroit dance music. Such a landmark piece, with the reverse parts edited in. Amazing stuff!
On the flip we find a track from another child of the Box, Gene Hunt. 'Sound Drome' is an amazing building drum track that totals over 13 minutes (a shorter version was released on White Owl on his Maad release). This version takes direct influence from the Muzic Box and Ron Hardy with the acapella intro that Ron used to play as well. The real insanity starts 8 minutes into the track when the tempo is pitched down (and then back up). The kind of madness that only Ron would create on the dance floor. Turn the lights down low!
