Electric Fetus

It started with a night out at New York's Sound Factory - and turned into an obsession, Inner City main man Kevin 'Reese' Saunderson and his then manager, Neil Rushton, were at the NY uber house club when 'The Pressure' by The Sounds Of Blackness got it's' debut World play, with the ecstatic response from the crowd meaning it was spun three times in a row.Nobody was more knocked out than Kevin who vowed there and then to come up with a Detroit answer, much to the delight of Soul mad Rushton, co-owner of the Network label.The idea of The Reese Project was quickly turned into House Heaven reality as Kevin recruited Detroit vocalist diva Rachel Kapp to record the anthemic 'Direct Me' & 'The Colour of Love' as the first two singles.Network made the group a main priority, coming with a whole slew of remixes to complement the original USA mixes on the subsequent album. Three of the most loved Network remixes are on this wonderful timeless 12.The Dave Lee Joey Negro mix from 1991 is rated by many as one of Network's finest moments, and maybe Lee's finest ever 'remixed with extra production' epics.Rushton remembers meeting Lee to collect the remix, and instantly phoning Saunderson proclaiming 'you won't believe this'.Underground Resistance's Mike Banks added his magic to the 1991 original mixes of 'The Colour Of Love' and the results were so overwhelmingly great that the idea of subsequent remixes was daunting. But the classic 1994 Network remix by The Playboys flew the flag for U.K. House.C.J. Mackintosh set the production standards for U.K. Soul filled House and his 1993 remix of 'So Deep' - sung by La'Trece - is a gem to be cherished forever and a day.Network's passionate crusade to crossover The Reese Project from House Music superstars to Pop success came tantalizingly close but never quite happened. But the Network remixes are a glorious legacy of House Music's golden age and three of the very finest are remastered here and presented on one glorious 12.
