Ten City’s fully charged House anthem is back!

Byron Burke, Herb Lawson and Byron Stingly's Deep House group, Ten City were the most prolific artists at the dawn of Ibadan records. A story that still continues today, all started with remixes of Ten City by the king of NY underground House, Kerri Chandler.

A pure House record in every form: 'Whatever Makes You Happy (The Union Vocal)' is just a feel good House record. Kerri adds his signature thick and crunchy 606 drums, floating string delays and organ section. All sounds that typified premium 90s House music.

A2. features ‘The Union Instrumental' version. The classic House stabs take you to the driver seat along with a slightly added synth-organ melody that escalates from low to high in range.

The flip side carries, 'Babatunji’s Dub'. A true Kerri crafted dub that sticks to some bubbling drum percussion and chopped remnants of the organs stabs, allowing the drums to breath. A thin modulating organ sound makes its way back in, but with a Dub-Reggae aesthetic.

Doing the honors of capping off one of Ibadan's first releases is the, 'Classix Vocal' mix. Another Kerri rendition where Byron's voice takes center stage, albeit this time, wrapped around clean effects and chopped with clever editing techniques.

If House is your passion, then this truly is one record that your collection cannot be complete without.
