  1. 'Jackmaster' Curt* - Real Fresh House

    2 For Sale from $115.00

    This dope and minimal Chicago Acid track is sooooooooooo damn fresh!! Aways was, always will be. And I've always really loved the repetitive female vocal refrain of " Real Fresh"..."Real Fresh", it really adds to the track over the wigged out 303 line. Yep, this one is certainly one of my all-time fave Chicago Acid Trax for sure.

    BTW, I like this track so much I even named an old blog and YouTube channel after it!
