Numbers to Reissue Classic DJ Deeon Tracks on Upcoming EP
Chicago's ghetto house icon receives the remaster treatment on 'Deeon Doez Deeon!'.
Raised in Chicago’s Southside, DJ Deeon released a long list of ghetto house classics on the pioneering Dance Mania label over the course of his career, amassing a worldwide following with his raw call-and-response style. To celebrate his legacy, Glasgow’s Numbers label have selected their favorite DJ Deeon cuts for a greatest hits EP, titled Deeon Doez Deeon!. Sourced and remastered from the original DAT tapes, the EP includes slinky vocal jam “2 B Free”, spastic favorite “House-O-Matic”, the erotically charged “Freak Like Me”, and redline drum workout “The 604”. Deeon Doez Deeon! drops via Numbers on March 23; until then, “Freak Like Me” can be streamed below. In addiiton, DJ Deeon’s recent contribution to XLR8R‘s Artist Tips series can be read here.
