Various Artists - Jamie 3:26 Presents A Taste Of Chicago [BBE Music]

Another compilation album released via BBE Music on March 27th, 2k20 is "Jamie 3:26 Presents A Taste Of Chicago", a seven track and roughly 53 minutes spanning showcase in which Chicago-based DJ and producer Jamie 3:26 takes care of the classics, re-editing tunes by Chip E, Jungle Wonz, BSTC and more to make those a perfect fit for his highly acclaimed DJ sets. And what a journey this is one is - from percussive, chord and stab driven House in his rework of "Venus & Mars" which even features unusually heavy electric guitars for a tune of this genre to sexy stripped down AfroHouse grooves in Jamie 3:26's edit of Mighty Science's "The Lesson", a careful revamp of Jungle Wonz 1986-classic "The Jungle" only to weigh in straight up oldskool Chicago House vibes with Quest's powerful, stomping "Mind Games" for a next cut. Following up is a rework of Braxton Holmes' "Stomps N Shouts" bringing forth massive Funk / Disco fire on a uptempo House foundation, Jamie 3:26's remodel of Chip E's "It's House" is as dry and driving as ever with its captivating main motif bringing in pure energy whilst the distinct vocal sample is moving back and forth through the stereo field and the whole thing switching into full on reverse mode before we end up with a powerful DiscoEdit in Calendar's "Coming On Strong" for a closing. Talk about class you talk about this one.
