International House Records (IHR) – one of my favorite vinyl labels – almost always had at least one good track on each release (and more often than not I would use every cut). “Off Tha Hook” takes the Chicago flava in a bangin’ booty direction, and I used this one as an intro at a ton of our Beat Pimpz house parties. I never did play it in a proper club, however.
Stay tuned, I’ll be posting up the other cuts off this album. I’m kinda bummed they don’t have much of anything from this label on digital. Back in the day IHR stuff was pretty rare here in Denver; I’d grab anything and everything I could find with the ‘house’ logo on it. I don’t remember when I got this one, and Discogs wasn’t sure of the release date either.
