Chicago veteran Lester Fitzpatrick has been producing and releasing records for over 25 years. His house and techno hybrids have dropped on labels such as Relief Records, UKR, State of Mind Recordings, Music Man, Dark House Music, Morpheus, Impact Mechanics, Kick & Clap Records, Chiwax and many more.

Fitzpatrick’s latest, Chi House, will see him return to Dave Maclean’s Kick & Clap Records with a trippy, acid-drenched four-track EP. Aimed straight at the floor, Chi House excels in its raw, stripped-back approach, an approach that Fitzpatrick has truly mastered.

Chi House will drop on 12″ and digitally on August 19, and ahead of that release, Fitzpatrick has offered up opening cut, “Galaxy,” as today’s XLR8R download. Across its six-minute run, the cut fuses pounding drum-machine rhythms with sci-fi like acid flourishes for a wild, heads-down ride.
