  • Chicago label Still Music will reissue two albums originally released on Hot Mix 5 Records: Sweet House Chicago and Acid. Mickey Oliver, Kenny Jason and Ralphi Rosario, three members of WBMX Chicago's Hot Mix 5 DJ crew, started Hot Mix 5 Records in 1986. Sweet House Chicago, originally released in 1989, is a "perfect snapshot of Chicago in the late Eighties," according to Still Music, and features tracks by DJ Pierre, Mickey Oliver, Ralphi Rosario and more. Acid, meanwhile, was the "the first and only full length [record]" on the label. Released in 1988, it includes two tracks by Larry Heard under his Fingers alias ("The Juice" and "Ecstasy") as well as Phortune and Armando. Still Music and its sub-labels, J/A/C/K, Past Due and Stilove4music, have released and reissued records by Larry Dixon, Frankie Knuckles, Mr Raoul K, Basic Soul Unit and more. Listen to a sampler of the releases.
