Chicago's Cratebug has supposedly been on the scene since 1983 but only started releasing in the last six years. About time and the results are great. Recently releasing his cheeky edits on Tugboat or KAT, he's now taken to releasing them himself on his own Bug Records. On this release, Chicago Edits, he does some dirty acid house on the A side with "Acid Train", an epic tour de force with synths snarling and squealing all about the place but just wait until that epic horn sound comes in. On the flip is an absolutely killer re edit of Sparks 1979 hit "Beat The Clock", which works those furious steel drums that come rushing in halfway through the original version. Tip!
