Kerri Chandler - "Mix The Vibe/Kaoz On King Street" (continuous DJ mix) - (1:13:23) 125 BPM
Review: Originally released in 97, Kerri Chandler and his King Street sound are back to remind the Ibiza DJ where it all began! With righteous rhodes and archetypal 909 beats par for the course with any Kerri Chandler production, his King Street Sounds label have collected 16 of the New Jersey artist's standout classics. From the undeniable phase action and vocal snippets in "Keep Me Inside", find Chandler's trademark jazzy stabs, cantina pianos and snappy rhythms falling in line with the silky vocals or Carole Sylvan ("Im Ready") to Charles McDougald's a little rougher "It's The Music". Hard drums and distortion furthermore are offset by the sweet and mellow pads in "All Bout Love", with original deep house and bassline flavours going all the way in "Here-N-Now". For something equally jazzy but cooler on the vocal, check out "Sunlight" next to some boss King Street vibes in the ever soulful "Smoke". Long live Kerri C.
