This is arguably the first house track to be pressed on wax. House pioneer Jesse Saunders used to play Mach's highly influential "On & On" all the time until his copy got stolen. The original "On & On" is a highly sought after 12" released back in 1980 and is one of the earliest blends, putting drops from Donna Summer's "Bad Girls" and Lipps Inc's "Funky Town" over Playback's "Space Invaders" beat. After his copy wen missing, Saunders decided to recreate the track and press it up himself, thus making one of the first house records! Saunders' "On & On" is not necessarily a faithful recreation, but a creative interpolation that went on to birth something entirely new. Peep the vocal drops, 808 programming and crafty synth work to get a taste of what I'm talking about. There's a reason people keep referring to this as the first house track even if it might not be accurate. Limited edition clear vinyl pressing. Recommended.
