The famous Chicago Label D.J. International is working on a digital reissue of some of the best-known house tunes in its catalogue. Located right across from Warehouse, the legendary label was originally founded in the 1980s and is considered a milestone of house music.

Among the remastered tunes you will find Frankie Knuckles‘s “Only The Strong Survive” Chip E.‘s “Time To Jack“, Fast Eddie‘s “Acid Thunder“, E.S.P.‘s “It’s You“, House People‘s “Godfather Of House” and Fingers Inc‘s “A Path“.
