Still Music is a label founded by the producer and DJ, Jerome Derradji, and for this mid-April the Chicago based label will release a tape series of long lost DJ mixes from the mid-late ’80s.
“JACK“, or Jack To The Lost Chicago Reels, is a project that wants to recall the glory days of the Chicago House music. The label’s boss acquired more than 160 reel-to-reel tapes from a Chicago record dealer, and almost 50 of them were DJ sets broadcast on local radio stations WGCI and WBMX.
The first of the four tapes features a 1986 WBMX set from the great Frankie Knuckles, while the others include sessions from Steve “Silk” Hurley and Devastating Daryl, and a couple of unknown artists.
Derradji said that the collection also includes rare and unreleased music dating from 1986 to 1992, but he still has to announce further info.
