Larry Heard’s Housefactors “Play It Loud” gets a re-release on Black Market Records

Larry Heard is a legend so I need not say much about him. He has a knack for making even the most punishing house pretty and musical, a fact which is very evident on this re-release of his 1988 Play It Loud EP.

The A-side jacks around a twisting and turning synth bass line that just never wears out for the title cut. The flip kicks off with “Freestyle” which is some even more mental jacking house featuring a bouncing sub bass line that rolls into one singular note that is held in that distinctive Larry Heard manner at key moments. Closing out the EP is “Go Crazy”, a track that saw lots of play in Detroit with its wild attitude, sharp edits and chaotic melodies.

This one shouldn’t take much thought as to why you should own it.
