House Of Love

Smooth Touch (Erick Morillo)

Strictly Rhythm

Released: 12/03/07

Erick Morillo was a man of many monikers throughout the 90s; at just the time Reel 2 Real were crossing over to the mainstream, one of his other records was busy smashing up underground clubs. And nowhere more so in the UK, where the girly vocal, lazy snares and jerky percussion of ‘House of Love’ were lapped up in traditional house and nascent UK garage clubs alike. To this day ‘House of Love’ is a favourite on the London old school and pirate radio circuit.

New York veteran Anthony Acid was making banging house records almost before anyone outside Chicago had discovered harder beats. In the time honoured sample tradition, his multi-faceted cut-up that featured part of the ‘House of Love’ vocal among a legion of classic snips past and present (including ‘Can You Feel It’ by CLS) over a set of frantic beats first came out as a bootleg. But instead of slapping a writ on him, Strictly took the better route of putting out the record as an official release.
