House legend Kerri Chandler has posted a playlist of 183 tracks from his own back-catalogue, meaning anyone looking to spend the next 21 hours and 35 minutes dancing to the New Jersey man’s best tracks now has the perfect opportunity. Including classics like “Rain”, “Return 2 Acid” and “Love No Limit”, the playlist is an education in Chandler’s best work, not that many house heads needed much of a reminder at quite how spectacular Kerri’s musical output has been over the last few decades. Deeper and more soulful than 99% of his peers, it’s no wonder that Chandler holds deity-like status amongst the house music crowds.
If 21 hours of Kerri Chandler in one go seems a bit much, perhaps you’d prefer to see him play a more conventional length set when he heads to Manchester on Friday 24th March. He’ll line up alongside Detroit counterpart Derrick Carter as well as Delano Smith, Mike Pickering and Jon Dasilva for the special Hacienda night at Albert Hall.
