Take a ride on Mr Sen’s Ghost Train..

We at The Pool love a trip to the fun fair and when we last visited we took ourselves for a fright on Mr Sen’s Ghost Train.

We speak figuratively of course but for those in the know this new single from Richard Sen dropping on Especial comes with all the eager anticipation of your first whirl on the dodgems…

A swirling vortex of cavernous proto house drums, ebm throbs and discombobulated apache chants ‘Ghost Train’ has caused quite the storm already with Hugo Capablanca, Mark E, Andrew Weatherall, Cosmo Vitelli and Bad Passion already heavily repping the test pressings that went out at the start of the year.

On the flip a more gouged out dub sits alongside ‘Meteor Shower’ a workout that sees icy trills of keys marry with pounding percussion hits and searing bursts of white noise.

To celebrate Mr Sen’s return to the fair we have 10 copies of his fantastic UK house compilation cd ‘This Ain’t Chicago:  This Ain’t Chicago: The Underground Sound Of UK House & Acid 1987-1991’ to give away.

To grab one simply email thomas@thepool-london.com with the answer to the question…

“Which friendly ghost had a film made about him starring Christina Ricci in 1995?”

End of Year Pool Picks…

Here at The Pool we thought we’d throw our collective hat into the ring of end of year charts. We’ve solicited charts from the staff and were given an unsurprisingly across the board selection, ranging from the left of centre jazz inflected pop of Julia Holter through to twisted electronic pan bashing of Fulton’s Syclops.

If that wasn’t enough we even found time to probe three of our roster on what 2014 holds for them as well as asking them for their release of 2013….

This Ain’t Chicago

Richard Sen compiles an absolute belter of a compilation for the ever consistent Strut Records, all the info you need below. Check this one out..

Strut presents an all new compilation placing the spotlight on early house music and acid emerging from the UK during the mid to late ‘80s, ‘This Ain’t Chicago’. Compiled by respected DJ / producer Richard Sen (Padded Cell, Bronx Dogs), the album celebrates the heady era when UK producers were responding to the first wave of Chicago house and documents the underground clubs that first championed the music – as the early rave scene and acid house kicked in at London clubs like Shoom and Spectrum, deeper and darker house nights thrived like RIP at Clink Street, Confusion and The Jungle and in warehouse parties around East London. Manchester too adopted house music at an early stage, most famously at The Hacienda’s Nude night.

As well as an in-depth look at the music and the accompanying scene through the DJs and producers that were there, ‘This Ain’t Chicago’ investigates media and clubland’s attitude to the emerging sound during house music’s early days, as early resistance from London’s rare groove and hip hop scene gave way to an explosion of dance music and rave culture. Musically, the album draws on both underground classics and lesser known tracks including early outings by producer Julian Jonah, A Guy Called Gerald, Trevor Fung’s Playtime Toons, Eddie Richards and Ian B’s Rio Rhythm Band and Baby Ford. The compilation also celebrates a host of excellent but short-lived UK DIY labels including Ruby Red from West Midlands, G-Force out of Essex, Rhythmbeat, Chill and Catt.

“This album features many personal favourites and the tracks were particularly inspirational to me as a DJ and clubber at the time,” reflects Richard Sen. With current productions drawing heavily on early house sounds and production techniques, this album brings to light many previously unsung classics from the UK underground, still sounding as vibrant and relevant as during the early days of house.
