There are certain obvious links between the past and the present: the road paved by the Rolling Stones for the Strokes is an obvious example. Then there’s the Duchamp-Warhol connection. Other associations, however, aren’t always so easily discernible. Here, the evolution of house is summarized by producers like H?kan Lidbo, Misc. and Rob Acid, who all throw down previously unreleased tracks that blend the details of the modern micro sound with the luscious and pulsating hedonism of early dance music. What you get is a conscious and playful reference to the nights when Chicago pounded its collective fist around the world.
