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.
