9th House ‘Keeping Me Up’

This vinyl-only gem from W&O Street Tracks has been made to satiate Nu Groove loving ‘real’ house evangelists, the kind who sign off their text messages with ‘Keep On’ and cry every time a Braxton Holmes 12″ is bootlegged. Still, what’s wrong with that, eh? It samples Maxwell (yes yes, hear me out) but you can’t really make out what he’s mumbling on about- it’s more a vibe yeah? I’ve just bought a copy direct from Bandcamp because everywhere else seems to have sold out in (from what I can tell) about 3.5 seconds. It’s very musical, solidly produced and features the kind of Maurice Fulton-esque clap programming that makes your more discerning lollipop-sucking rave monkey bite their bottom lip and slap the ceiling. You might be able to (there was a couple left as of tonight) buy it here. Can’t wait to road test this bad boy at Body Electric with my old pal Frank Booker on the 22nd…
