Out in April, the 22-track collection features classic and rare house tracks from Phuture, Mr Fingers and Rocky Jones among others.
The compilation sees the UK label collect Chicago acid house tracks from the likes of Larry Heard, Farley Jackmaster Funk, Mr K-Alexi, Adonis and Phuture, the outfit credited with the first ever acid 12-inch (1987's "Acid Tracks"). There are a few tracks you'd expect to appear in a compilation on acid house, including Adonis's "No Way Back" and Mr Fingers' "Can You Feel It" and "Washing Machine," but the compilation also expands into more hard-to-find material, including Rocky Jones's 1987 cut The Choice of a New Generation (Choice of the Underground).
The label has digitally remastered all of the tracks, and both the vinyl and CD version of the compilation will arrive with a graphic novel by Paolo Parisi that tells the story of Chicago house. (Or as the press release puts it: "Mysteron alien sound lords prepare to enter Chi-Town, as the acid melodies of Phuture, Mr Fingers and the city's other music futurists open the portals of the Windy City to the Uberite invasion. How will this raving insanity end?")
Acid - Mysterons Invade The Jackin' Zone: Chicago Acid and Experimental House 1986-1993 will be released both on heavyweight 180g vinyl and as a double CD set, with bonus stickers and a collector's set of postcards included.
