Classics: Kerri Chandler – Bar A Thym (Nite Grooves)

Coming from a family of musicians based in Jersey, Kerri Chandler stands among the ones who’ve set up the standards of House Music. This with a unique (and eventually rough) sound.

Such as demonstrated by his spontaneity. Able to share the decks with an impromptu guest. Just the way he managed to do back back at the beginning of the Millennium at the Sunslice Festival.

Released back in 2005, the hypnotic ‘Bar A Thym’ pretty much came as a tribute to the unforgettable good times we had back there. Beginning with this jam session that saw us (Kerri and I) responding to each other one track after another until the morning lights. This with Dennis Ferrer droppin’ additional percussion from everything he could find around the DJ booth!
