Ron Trent Features In Wax Poetics' Travel Series Premiere 'Soul City - Episode 1: Chicago'

Watch my interview as part of the first episode of a new travel series by Wax Poetics, exploring the musical heritage of selected cities. 

"Ronnie Reese explores his home town of South Side, Chicago, first visiting with Todd Mayfield, son of soul icon Curtis Mayfield and writer of the new biography "Traveling Soul" (which was co-authored by Wax Poetics writer Travis Atria). They talk about Curtis's desire to own his own work, which led to starting the record label Curtom. In the second segment, Reese meets with Chicago house icon Ron Trent, where they talk about his rise through the local and international scene, which culminated in cofounding his own label, Prescription Records. In the epilogue, we pop into the (Discogs) Crate Diggers record fair and speak to cofounder Zernell Gillie, as well as chat with Ron Trent again about the joys of record digging."

Forthcoming Vinyl Release 'Attitude 'Preview - 'Months of May' and 'New Rivers'

Let's look at Side B tracks to the 'WHATDOYOUTHINKYOUKNOWABOUTDEEPHOUSE Vol. 1 - Attitude' EP.

'Months of Mays' is a refreshing collaboration with the legendary producer Harry Dennis of the Chicago, part of the group 'The IT' which he formed with Larry Heard and Robert Owens. The track is a throwback to Dennis' signature spoken word and the mid-tempo rhythms of 80s Chicago house music. 

Part of the 4th installment in the 'Spaces & Places' series, 'New Rivers' is a fitting tribute to the numerous new rivers crossed in distant lands.
