Oh yes, oh yes, it is festival season. Vanilla Ace has a record that is demanding to be heard at various festivals around the land. He is prepping a new EP Perfect 10 out on Friday via Worthy's Anabatic Records and we have the premiere on the b-side – a collab with Gettoblaster featuring Chip E titled “Music Box.”
Vanilla Ace & Gettoblaster unleashes a massive record as an ode to Music Box, the famed Chicago club DJed by Ron Hardy. The Chicago club is best known as Warehouse, the namesake of house music, but in 1982 it changed its name to Music Box.
As Chip E says, people would go to Music Box for some jackin’ house music and Vanilla Ace & Gettoblaster deliver on that promise. The kick is thumping, the bassline delivers a powerful dancefloor groove and they add a dark synth topline that brings this record from just a functional dancefloor record to something much bigger.
“Perfect 10 has been a weapon in my sets for awhile now. As any fan of mine would know I love a good rap vocal over some heavy beats and bass,” explains Vanilla Ace. “The B-side ‘Music Box’ is a collab with my Michigan pals Gettoblaster and the legend Chip E on vocals talking about the legendary club the Music Box.”
“Music Box” will be released on June 7 as part of the three track Perfect 10 EP. It includes the two new songs "Perfect 10" and "Music Box," plus a LA Riots remix of “Perfect 10.” Stream “Music Box” below.
