Review

The third volume in Kai Alce and DJ Spinna’s ‘Foundations’ 7″ vinyl series traces the roots of House music back to 1985, with Chip-E and KJoy’s DJ International classic ‘Like This’. Appearing on a ‘45 for the very first time, ‘Like This’ exemplifies the early Chicago House sound that Chip-E pioneered during the early 80’s. Featuring raw, distinctive vocals from K-Joy, the track also stars a young Frankie Knuckles speaking the track’s title, in possibly his first ever studio session (it would be two years before Chip-E would bring him back into the studio to have a go at making a record of his own, but that’s another story). BBE Music’s 7″ reissue features an exclusive edit of the original extended 12″ version of ‘Like This’, a cut which still simply can’t fail to move a dancefloor or bring a big smile to the face of any respectable house-head, more than three decades on from its creation. On the flip side, Kai and Spinna selected the ‘DDDub’ mix, a percussive and rugged, stripped down workout, which has stood the test of time brilliantly.
