Being on the one and only, original "Underground" label from Chicago, I thought that this predated Cajmere's Percolator, due to the label's status as a trend-setter. I mean, this is the label that released "Jack your Body", practically the first house music anthem. Alas, I was wrong. That said, even if it did come out a year or so later, Mike Dunn's ode to the appliance definitely has a life of it's own. At first listen, this track might seem understated - even a bit too laid back or (dare I say) boring. But it is anything but over a loud, clear system. While perhaps not a midnight peak-hour cut, at the 3:00-4:00 AM smoke-filled slot, the groove will hook your body and not let go, and the bass line is simply earth-shaking. I heard this live for the first time just as the sun was rising at a killer NYC outlaw party in '92 or '93, and it floored me enough to trainspot the great Brooklyn DJ Carlos Tera from the Sonic Groove crew to find out what it was. Thanks Mike Dunn for a beautiful slice (and Carlos for being intelligent enough to play such an understated masterpiece!)

the a-side contains tongue´n´cheek-reworks of cajmere´s "percolator". however dunn´s samples rather pay hommage to mom´s kitchen appliances instead of the reference to the original coffee machine and he uses a lot of video game noises instead of the portamento. very good tracks!
