Description

Two of the dopest vocal party rockers from the no-holes-barred enthusiasm of 1990's euphoria make their mark here for the latest contribution to the CORE reissue series. Hailing from the major label R&B act Shai, "This Is The Place Where You Belong" is an ingeniously simple, forward-pulling club piece de resistance, a deep chord-saturated, spacious exercise in vocal dub efficacy that helped pave the way for future generations of R&B-house remixes to make their way onto club music's radar. On the flip, the GOD Todd Terry makes his second appearance in the CORE series, remixing Cultured Pearls in a of breathtaking, melancholy modern electronic arrangement that affirms and reaffirms in one triumphant gesture the rightful place of songs in the dance music cannon, especially amidst the track saturated era of house music. Refreshing and utterly effective, CORE's newest chapter reminds us that house can be more than just a concentration of disco's repetitive core, acting as a medium for fresh and visionary new explorations of soul music's complex musical character.
