Image: 1592918 Chicago's Trax Records has gone down in history as being one of, if not the most important House labels. With a roster that includes luminaries such as Adonis, Armando and many, many more this accolade is more than justified.

"Acid Trax" is a loose guide to some of the above mentioned peoples music, but it is also a snapshot of the rough, lo-fi, almost bedroom quality of some of the sounds from this new wave of producers emanating from the city in the mid to late 80's. It is these sounds that captured the imaginations of people all over the world at the time and continue to inspire and influence countless contemporary producers today.

This compilation is the perfect addition to the seasoned Chicago lovers collection or it is the perfect starting point for those who have just discovered the windy city's own unique brand of jacking electronic grooves. There are plenty of classics included on here, all re-mastered and re-pressed in conjunction with Trax Records. Extended to to a double pack for a louder pressing from the original single LP version.
