Chicago House 12s

Mid-Ď80s Chicago spawned a new, raw sound in dance music; the result of two seemingly conflicting trends. There was the pure disco energy of Frankie Knuckles and the Warehouse. Meanwhile, under the Michigan Ave. bridge, Ron Hardy was showcasing the new, stripped down electronic sound emerging from the streets at the infamous Music Box. This was dance music at itís most essential, created with the minimum of resources - an 808, a 303, and maybe some other second hand keyboard out of the local pawn shop. The result was dance floor magic.

Proudly wearing their influences on their sleeves (Italo, High Energy, and Disco classics), a new generation of producers sprang up. The sound ranged from hard, minimal club bangers to deep, introspective soundscapes. The mid- to late-Ď80s were a vibrant time for the Chicago sound, exemplified both by the range and quality of releases on local labels and the wild club scene.
