A reissue of the 1993 record from Chandler's Grampa project is also on the way.
The deep house favorite is returning to the Berlin label after mixing Watergate 15 and putting out a related 12-inch, The Watergate Files, back in 2014. His second single this year features Dutch techno innovator Steve Rachmad and Cinthie, the Berlin-based DJ, producer and Watergate resident, on remix duties.
Before Checkmate arrives, Chandler's 1993 Grampa 12-inch She's Crazy, released through Abigail Adam's influential Movin' Records, will get a reissue. Grampa was a project involving Chandler, his production collaborator Yahya McDougald and his grandfather Calvin Reed, Sr., who provided vocals.
