Kelvin Andrews & Danny Spencer launch their new label, Wonk, with a classic anniversary re-release more than 20 years after the original.
You often hear the word 'Legend' bandied around the hallowed halls of the musical world, but this word barely touches the status of the man behind this record. He is the quintessential acid house Legend. 21 years of Danny Spencer and his 303 evolved into many guises: Danny Mould, Dizzy Dee, Danny Spencer, Danny Mekanik, This Ain’t Chicago, Candy Flip, Sure is Pure, Sound 5, and, finally Soul Mekanik.
In celebration of history and yet another lease of creativity from Danny and his everlasting partner in crime, Kelvin Andrews, their new label Wonk is launched with a re-release of Danny’s first ever recording, the 1988 house classic, ‘Ride the Rhythm’. A truly innovative concept, Wonk will be delivered on a unique platform, continually delivering product and new lessons in music.

Originally recorded 21years ago and released on Club Records ‘Ride The Rhythm’ was one of the UK’s very first answers to the sound emerging from Chicago in the mid-Eighties and is rightly revered. The 2010 rework sounds as fresh as on first output, maintaining its original 303 sounds, Balearic spirit and pure authenticity.
To balance up this monumental re-release the prolific skilled master, Derrick Carter, a true legend in his own right, gives you everything you want and more with a jackfest, fidget workout in his own unique style.
