Photocopied centre labels on the repress unfortunately. Looks a bit shady and cheap. Quality pressing and music though.

Strange that no one mentions the Ebonics track here. This track is a stunning low deep groove masterpiece, simple rhythmics elements added with style, wonderfully grooving hi-hats, a superb chord pad that drives this 12 minutes piece all along with the ever deep knocking huge kick. Wonderful deep house indeed.

"Dusty Cabinets" isn't my favorite Theo track, but it's up there. just more of the brilliant thing that theo does with timing. There's just something _off_ about the rhythm, off in a really good way. I like it pitched up a bit, but some people prefer the relatively slow tempo @ 0.

'Dusty Cabinets' is a midtempo-tracky-acid masterpiece, sounds like an old haunted house crackling with its plenty tricky angry ghosts inhabitants. A masterpiece for any Herbert, Ark or Theo Parrish fans, and any adventurous DJs not always following the uptempo trend.

"Dusty Cabinets" is Theo's minimal tracky masterpiece. Very few sounds but plenty of energy make this one a winner. "Ebonics" is a deeper, more lush cut with samples from an old record about "Black American dialect", used as social commentary. Overall one of the best Sound Signature records out there.
