I Got A Fever

I posted about Rekids a little while ago, but I thought it'd be fun to bring up the wonderful Cabin Fever Trax 12" series that's put out by their unofficial sub label, RKDS. Each single includes "revamped" edits of old, obscure house jams, and they seem to be doing pretty well as the sixth installation just came out in June (buy it at Phonica).

House is a genre that fades in and out of favor with me... I think this is largely due to the fact that it tends to be pretty heavy-handed and aggressive whereas something like disco (oh, how vague you are) necessitates a certain amount of organic warmth and elasticity. House, when done well, can be really engaging in a natural, almost psychedelic way, though, and when I get tunes of that variety, I can only love them to pieces.

Here's the b-side of Jacques Renault's Cabin Fever Trax Vol. 6 12". It's more of a after-hours comedown chiller, but there's still loads of rhythm in there to keep you spinning on the dancefloor in the middle of the night as well.
