Luke Solomon mixes part one of new Strictly Rhythm series

Classic label boss Luke Solomon mixes the first volume of a new mix album series called ‘Strictly Jacked!’ for the legendary Strictly Rhythm label. According to the accompanying  press release ‘Strictly Jacked!’ compiles ‘hidden rarities and contemporary cuts from seminal labels including Cuttin’ Headz, Robsoul, Heist and of course Strictly that encapsulate the jackin’ house sound of Chicago, alongside brand new remixes from Solomon himself.’

Solomon: “Strictly was quite literally THE house music label for me in my formative years. I bought everything – even the records I wouldn’t have played – just so I owned everything. Then when I worked at Freetown I was lucky enough to become one of the few that got test pressings every single week.”

“I’ve always been one for digging deep, so naturally my contrary self gravitated towards the B-sides and the oddities. With that in mind and with the spirit of the jackin’ theme, I took the Chicago-inspired route on this compilation, remixing and remastering some of my favourite records and adding some contemporary catalogue which will hopefully enable a new generation to discover a very important part of house music history.”

‘Strictly Jacked!’ is out on 24 July 2015 through Strictly Rhythm.
