Essence Of A Dream sounds like it came out in 1991 or 1992 which is insane.

“Risqué Madness” not only is based on " Life Is A Jungle " by Kikrokos, but the synth line is taken from that unreleased masterpiece by Marshall Jefferson entitled " Destination " from 1986 !!!!

Wow.....so expensive, guess I'll just have to make do with "essence of a dream" on 'best of house vol.3' and the other side 'risque madness' on 'Jack Trax 3'.

Two worthy classics on either side. Should've been a double AA side in my opinion. Essense Of Dream is what deep house should be about. Melancholy, sensuality, with a subtle funkiness which doesn't overpower the other elements and not overproduced to the point of unnecessary overlaying of pads, vocals etc.

Risque Madness on the other hand is quite a mental track. Off-Kilter compared to the main side and quite a bit tougher too. Definitely has crossover appeal into the heavier, more experimental Detroit techno sounds and Chicago house and acid of the time. The funk is more blatant and seriously jacking!

risque madness - this was such an early cult house track , only the real early heads came in and bought one of these . http://www.discogs.com/Kikrokos-Jungle-DJ-Dirty-Kate/release/210862 is where the risky madness sample comes from . its an old ron hardy track and a cult track in itself . i think someone had it on the 'choices' cd series too [tenaglia/mills maybe?] . still sounds so underground and so good .

This track represents the Early house sound of the Chi.
K Alexi was and is one of the true pioneers that made this possible.
