MAURICE JOSHUA WITH HOT HANDS HULA - I GOTTA BIG DICK
Now, if there was ever a record title that could make you look twice it's gotta be this seminal slab of jacking Chicago mayhem from Maurice Joshua & "Hot hands" Hula. Released in the golden year of 1988 on the legendary Trax label which was already in full flight and on a major roll at the time. It could have been easy to overlook "I gotta big dick" because of it's (mildly) humorous, tongue in cheek title, but don't be fooled, this is one sleek, charged acid weapon, an early blueprint for the incoming ghetto house scene out of the Chi perhaps? If you're somewhat prudish or easily offended by the lyrical content the guys were kind enough to include an instrumental version that jacks in all the right places! Also included on this EP is the stone cold classic "This is acid" which was co-produced by Lidell Townsell that became an acid house anthem all the way from Illinois to Ilford. A true school Chicago jam indeed! Finishing out the EP is the almost apocalyptic acid of "Feel The Mood" that features a rap from Kool Rock Steady, the combination of twisting 303's, church-like organs and synths and Kool's razor sharp rhymes make for a pretty heavy concoction, use this one wisely - damage will occur on the dance-floor! Remastered in conjunction with Trax Records, fully legit, now is the time to revisit a cornerstone of classic Chicago House music, often imitated, never bettered!
