Rick Wilhite - FACT Mix 198
Over the past week and a half since its release, Rick Wilhite's mix for FACT magazine has been dominating play in my listening hours. 69 minutes of pure bliss. This mix goes deep, I can't begin to explain how much soulful, emotional music is purveyed by Wilhite in this beautiful mix. The integral 3 Chairs member (alongside Theo Parrish, Kenny Dixon Jr. and latterly Marcellus Pittman) constructs a set full of emotional Detroit house killers, which patiently works it's way into a deeper, faster groove. Cuts from Theo Parrish, Moodymann, Wilhite himself (aka The Godson) can all be heard, but the tracklist has yet to be released, which has left me in the cold concerning a couple of wonderful tracks which I was yet to hear before the mix. If anybody can knows the track which begins at 31.30 and ends at 34.30, please don't hesitate to get in touch, I've been searching for days to find it. The vocals 'I'll find you' are repeated, with a slow 4 to the floor beat which is by beautiful polyrhythmic synth chords which provide that emotive element when combined with the soulful vocal clips.
