Live at the Ministry of Sound 1991: Review

Upon submission the review and release were deleted. I've even censored my naughty self :) for this. So, for what it's worth: A 70 minute low-quality bootleg of mid-90s vocal house music taped from a radio station called Hot 97. (Much) more than that: A love letter to unfettered joy, penned by the unanimous godfather of house music, Frankie Knuckles. The prose: Unyielding, overblown kick drums (of course), jangly keyboard stabs, incessant vocal samples that scream for Transcendence! (“surrender yourself”, “take me higher”, “a-a-a-a-a-a-a-a-a-a-work”(?)). If a subwoofers frequencies elicit vibrations that move from my flesh and then to yours, does that not bring us closer together? Togetherness! Brotherhood! This is the creed of house music, and there is no other mix that expresses these necessary and life-affirming stati so perfectly as this. Bipedalism affords an incomparable freedom of physical expression. F**k looking cute. Ugliness is a healthy consequence of exercising your demons. Contort, convulse, stamp your feet so that the floor than can absorb your doubts, fears, anxieties, your unassuraredness. Leave them where you stand. Because for these 70 minutes this music is there for you, so allow it to take you (where? To a completely uninhibited state of mind). Do this and know: there is Love in you! Forget thinking; let your body be the master. Let yourself be Free! Feel sore! F**king dance!
