Let’s go classic with: Derek Chase – Let Me Tell You (Bootleg) #House #ChicagoHouse #Classic

Here’s a track I’ve been waiting months to feature.

Just before lockdown Derek Bakker asked me if I wanted to post his Let Me Tell You bootleg. I was up for it but then lockdown intervened and Derek decided to hold it back. Lockdown may still be here (Tier 2 for me, fact fans) but Deke’s decided to release the track – with limited free download.

This vocal house anthem gets a more restrained Chicago spin in Derek’s version. And he even allows a bit of techno restraint into the mix. This is focused on the beats and the groove. The Let Me Tell You What you do to me vocal (Loleatta Holloway, I think) is used judiciously and sparingly. That allows the full epiphany effect to come through when it’s used. Clubbing may feel like a memory in these days but with this track it’s a positive one for the future. A House classic cut into a new classic shape.
