"Highly DJ Friendly and in-demand cuts available in mass for the first time. Features art from previous Star Creature collaborator and Chicago Resident Ben Marcus. Art Direction based on the 80s versions of Chicago compliment cards and party flyers. The original music was all recorded and produced here in Chicago. All the musicians still live in Chicago. The record was pressed right here in Chicago as well." - Star Creature
Chicago boogie selector DJ Kool Hersh links with funk aficionados Star Creature for this straightforward slab of rare Chicago boogie trax, using Hersh's 2019 cassette mixtape of the same name as a jumping off point. These four tracks are culled from a handful of the rarest boogie 45s in existence, cohesively exhibiting the Windy City's sophisticated, soulful and atmospheric take on the sound. Hersh and Star Creature's Tim Zawada lend the tunes a nice 2020 remaster along with a few gentle edits for maximum DJ friendliness. No brainer here, recommended.
