"sub label of King Street records" xxx
[...] Not the case with Nite Grooves' recent compilation, Abstract Afro Lounge, which presents two incredible discs graced with extensive, impeccably-produced tracks by Blaze, Chris Brann of Wamdue popularity, and the Idjut Boys, to name a few. The standout track belongs to Japan's DJ Hiro and Masabumi Kikuchi, whose "Kote Moun Yo" is a tour-de-force of Afro-Caribbean rhythms and harmonies that single-handedly redefine the "tribal house" concept; a refreshing journey to a source of dance music as we know it.

When asked about his [Kerri Chandler] relationship with King Street Records in which he has done so much work within the late 5 years, he replies, "King Street is like my family. Hisa Ishioka (label owner) has allowed me to take my craft in the direction I felt like taking it. As opposed to most labels which are mainly interested in me recreating something I've done in the past".

Well, one of the records that caught our attention back in early 1995, was Brooklyn Friends and "Philadelphia" [which is a remake of Salsoul's Heavy Vibes] on NiteGrooves. Not only was the inside label logo very classy, it actually represented in not to misunderstand words what it was all about : night grooves, the thing we were looking for and maybe will be always looking for. What was more, one of the versions featured on this 12" was : D.M. Experience ! A very long (13:21 mins) track full of acoustic african drums and dreamy loungy rythms and super slowly building up towards a climax after about 9 minutes, where a pan flute solo takes over...V.A.
