Rick Wade – Harmonie Park Revisited
Posted by Jakub
Michigan’s Detroit House producer Rick Wade has worked with musician’s like Kenny Larkin and Theo Parrish over the years and the label Rush Hour has compiled a wonderfully detailed compact disc of some of his big hits. This all takes me back to some of the first vinyl I ever brought when I started DJing in 1997, just that faster disco house that i’d buy up at Melodies and Memories out in Detroit, MI. The tempo isn’t a trendy one and neither is the sound and that’s made me want to spotlight just this album alone, I hope you can find something special in this 70’s funk/disco style of midwestern house as I did.

I’m a big fan of Detroit house, having grown up in the suburbs and working downtown. I’m also a fan of Green Velvet/Cajmere. He has a good podcast.

This sort of house has always done it for me — nostalgic for those days in record shops looking for this kind of sound on vinyl and at warehouse parties.
