Rahaan has been dropping disco and house music to retro heads since the 80’s when he and his friends use to go out and dance at the best house parties in Chicago.
This release holds three “of those special extended, re-arranged and nowhere to find” tracks originally by London’s Los Charly’s Orchestra, a boogie-disco group with a Latin perspective created by Venezuelan producers Juan Laya & Jorge Montiel.
Rahaan’s been spinning music since the 80s, he got his schooling in disco music when he heard Ron Hardy play at the Music Box in his native Chicago. At the time other Djs like Pierre or Frankie Knuckles were throwing parties too, but it was the unique fashion Ron Hardy served up his disco and house - raw and real - that had left a long lasting impression on Rahaan. Since then, the brother from the Windy city has amassed a more than respectable record collection, mixing up the rare with the more accessible, but always keeping his choice dance floor friendly. Over the years Rahaan has personalised plenty of classic tracks by transforming them into his trademark edits in a similar way Ron Hardy and Theo Parrish have done, with the only exception that he keeps close to the disco sound in his output, occasionally dipping into soul, boogie, jazz funk and funk territory. But above all, the essence of Rahaan’s trademark sound is still undeniably ‘Chicago’ in its energy. There is consistent groove in his boogie along type sets - all the way to his more bouncing and jackin’ basement party style sets, in which you can literally feel the music, sweat and funk in the air.
The thing about Rahaan is that he defiantly knows his art, and it is his outstanding skill behind the decks that has brought him from the Chicago underground circuit out onto the international playing field including Amsterdam.
