Absolute massive release. Could have easily been broken down into 4 still great 12".
They just don't make them like this anymore.

Frankie Bones played Let there be house and the Poem almost back to back in the UK at the Hacienda January 27, 1990, so this must have come right around the new year.

Definitely one of the strongest / must have releases on the NuGroove label. Who can forget the first time they heard that intro and bassline? Peter Daou's keyboard work is absolutely stunning and just takes you into deep house heaven. 10/10

The real hero (or genius as some may say) on this record is Peter Daou, he engineered and played keys on so many classic Nu Groove records. In my opinion he is one of the unsung heroes of house and doesnt get the credit he rightly deserves.

this masterpiece of an ep contains one of the best deep house grooves ever, "massai women".
the original 1990 release was very rare, for about 8 years, there are bootlegs out but the recording
volume of those is much lower.

In 1990, Mr. Konders, all-round reggae and house producer released a landmark in the realm of house music. "House Rhythms" is not just a stop-over in time, but a timeless masterpiece.

While digging in the crates and finding more releases from back then my conclusion is that these times gave birth to lots of early work that still sounds contemporary today.

On this ep, there are 3 track that need more attention:

1. the poem, addressing in the intro apartheid and riots between races. Besides this social commitment, a bassline kicks in, which is more than essential. It builds and flutes start emotionally.

2. nervous acid, 303 acid lines, great percussion and drum-lines lead to a killer acid track. A yellow jersey excercise.

3. let there be house, a bassline a la Lil' Louis, great piano loops and offcourse Mr. Jack's vocals.

ESSENTIAL STUFF: a must have for vinyl junkies in this genre

My favorite release on Nu Groove, this is classic acid house. "Nervous Acid" is perfectly named; dark, minimal, but with a strong sense of groove. This is a must have!
