In order to start off 2012 properly, I want to go back to the beginning of the new millennium to the depths of 2001 to pull out Craig Alexander’s “Soul Revival,” a track that predicted the re-emergence of the soul-inspired Chicago House in the post Y2K world. Eleven years later, we find ourselves at a crossroads in electronic music. There is a push by some to pull away and obfuscate us from the influences that brought about club music. Let us in 2012 remember its roots, reward those who have been their since the beginning, and keep it going through the night. Happy Friday. Don’t watch the drop on this one.
