Micro in the House  

This is an interesting self produced house record from 1989 on Diamond records. It was cut in the times of acid and jack house but sounds more like gentleman's techno. Three of the four tracks on this EP have a similar sound with one acid track to close. Lil Louis owned a club in Chicago club in the late 70's and was famous for his tape edits. He collaborated with Marshall Jefferson through the 80's. He even cut two records for Epic.

    The description seems to understate what a big deal this song was at the time. People were going crazy over this at the Chicago record stores. I've still got a white label test pressing of this. Gotta put this in an upcoming mix.

    I have to agree with Sandisco, above. This was a monster record in NY. This is the track that got Louis his major label deal. The Diamond records press of this is actually pretty rare, or was at one time, partly because it became unavailable as soon as Epic snapped him up and put out their own 12". I know because someone stole my copy right out of the deejay booth some months after the major label version came out and I never came across another one. As a result it always pissed me off to play the major label pressing of it.
