Todd Terry's classic "Stress It" bump, originally released under his Dred Stock moniker back in the mid-90s, sees a fine reissue on the InHouse label with a rather tasty collection of remixes to boot. The original vocal mix is a phat-as-hell garage bumper brimming with Caribbean lyrics, but the "Tee UK mix" goes dubbier than before, delving deeper into the percussion, whereas the "Tee ragga mix" takes a ghetto booty approach to things and sounds like something DJ Funk would have smashed out during the Windy City's golden years. The "Tee beat dubba" is the sparsest of the lot, adding in a healthy level of low frequencies and even a little break in the middle of the beat...wonderful...
NY legend and house pioneer Todd Terry powers through with a hot, new floor-filler on his Inhouse imprint. Terry is responsible for some of the most legendary cuts of the '90s and was chopping beats and samples before most of us were even born. "Hardhouse" is a straight-up house jacker packed with enough punch for a whole artillery of dancers and really takes us back to Terry's finest moments throughout his long career. Dusty beats, grizzled hi-hats, metallic snares and a whole load of funk. Unmissable.
