It’s 1989 in Chicago, House is sweeping the world.
Mickey Oliver, radio and club DJ star with the Hot Mix 5 and owner of the (now legendary) Hot Mix 5 Records decides to drop a compilation on M Records, a division of Hot Mix 5 Records he created in 1988.
“Sweet House Chicago” is the result - a perfect snapshot of Chicago in the late Eighties (all the way down to the front cover picture taken at one of Mickey’s gig).
It features 8 incredible tracks produced by the who’s who of Chicago House at the time: Dj Pierre, Mickey Oliver, Phortune, Ralphi Rosario and more…
The track “I Need A Beat” being an actual Larry Heard production that was made for Mickey Oliver.
So here it is, reissued for the first time by Still Music, on a yellow colored vinyl DLP while the CD includes two bonus tracks including the magnificent “Anticipate 12” Remix” by Mickey Oliver.
Chicago’s House has never been so sweet!
