Boomkat Product Review:
'Bang The Box!' documents the lost story of Chicago dance music when house was king from the perspective of Matt Warren's little known but vital AKA Dance Music label.
Thru 26 tracks released between 1987-88 this awesome compilation renders a spectrum of truly authentic, original Windy City bangers, groovers and shakers hardly known beyond the city limits and the collections of proper house heads. At one end of the spectrum you've got the tantric 10 minute psychedelic house of Nexus 6's 'Take Me Higher (The Ultimate Acid Mix)', and shades away the killer darkside tracky styles of Matt Warren's own 'Bang The Box' killer.
The rest spread out from romantic, Freestyle pop-edged aces such as Michael Griffin's 'Close Your Eyes' featuring George Karchmer & Khrissie Henderson (check the 13 minute Matt-N-Steve House mix, too!) to the raw, futurist funk of Warren's 'Take It To The Wall' and the raw yet debonaire slow groove of Michaelangelo's 'Lost In The World' or the all-too-brief 2 minutes of madness of his 'Pick It Up' diamond which just screams out to be edited and extended. Altogether it's a real treasure trove for the discerning house head who likes it raw, original, and shows up so much overpolished, over-wrought modern stuff as pale, prosaic, sexless imitations.
