The upcoming compilation features 15 previously unreleased tracks by the Chicago house icon.
The two-disc compilation gives a comprehensive look at the Chicago veteran's famous house sound. Carter put the compilation together himself, and made a point of focussing less on old classics and more on songs that he feels best embody his trademark style. "Choosing the material for this compilation was an experience for sure," he says. According to a press release, Carter mined his old hard drives and DAT tapes in search of obscure material. He ended up including a total of 15 previously unreleased tracks.
The first disc of House Masters Derrick Carter features 10 of Carter's original productions; the second collects his remixes of artists like Freaks, SoCalled and Truman industries.
