Alex Williams said:you can't call Derrick Carter Funky House!
'Funky House' is a nasty, tacky, cheesy term associated with such House music played by people like Erick Morillo and (sigh) the Trophy Twins.
Derrick Carter is a pioneer of the Deep, Jackin', Boompty-Boomp Chicago sound
Check out Dez's 'Derrick L. Carter presents "About Now..."' CD, Heather's new CD on Nordic Trax, or the Igloo CD (Igloo #002).
For the deeper edge, Doc Martin, H Fondation and Tyler Stadius all have Fabric CDs
Milhousegfx said:So true!!!
DC reprezents the chi-town jackin' boompty boomp style!
For some recommendations on some cds:
Heather's new "Dancefloor Priniciples" on nordic trax is the Sh*t!!! DO NOT sleep on this CD!! Very Boompty!
Diz's "Decks and the City pt.2" is also very good.
Diz and James Curd's "Keeping it Green" on Igloo is a great listen.
Anything Mark Farina is dope as well.
NO ONE really comes close to derrick carter's style on CD except for Derrick Carter, so yes, please buy "About Now", "Thanks for Coming By" (double mixed cd w/ luke solomon on classic), and if you can find it, "Cosmic Disco" and "Future Sounds of Chicago (on MOS i think)"
DC is coming out w/ an album later this year called "Near Hit's and Greatest Misses", i think it's a comp of some of the remixes he's done and maybe some unreleased tracks. DC is also going to be showcased on Azuli's Choice Collections series (Frankie knuckles, Tony humphries, and Danny T were the previous), so look out for that as well.
Hope this helps!
