Jack Trax (Label und Compilation)



Album Tipp:

Das Label Jack Trax (Indigo Music) hat den Chicago House in den britischen Markt gebracht.

Nach dem UK Chart-Erfolg von Farley Jackmaster Funk’s „Love can’t turn around“ (September ’86, Platz 10) und dem ersten House Nr.1-Hit von Steve Silk Hurley mit „Jack your Body“ (Januar ’87) wurde das Label von Damon D’Cruz gegründet um den House-Sound von Chicago, Detroit, N.Y. nach UK zu transportieren. (It’s time for house!)
Die Club-Hits aus Amerika wurden für UK lizensiert und herausgekommen ist dabei die sehr gute Compilation-Reihe „Jack Trax“.
Einige Songs wurden zudem auch als 12“-Maxis veröffentlicht, dabei so großartige Künstler wie Finger Inc., J.M.Silk und Liz Torres.
1992 wurde das Label aufgelöst.

LP-Cover:

Keith Thompson [Musiker, siehe Vol.6] über das Label:

The label provided house music lovers a great source and gateway to pioneering tracks coming out of Chicago, Detroit, and New York. But unfortunately, Mr. D’Cruz was a shadey character in his business practices regarding the licensing and publishing of many of songs that are now classics. If you’re young and or stupid, you get „sharked“ This comes from one who knows and was young but lucky. [via Discogs]
