Can You Feel It? / Washing Machine

Get On Down/Trax

Released: 15th June 2018



The heartbreaking combination of those huge emotive pads and that stunning square bassline have changed lives for nearly thirty years now, and I don't think they'll ever stop. This is a magical record, perfect in its simplicity and subtlety, with Larry Heard's masterful syncopated percussion giving you a different nuance every time you hear it. Stunning! And there's more! Back in '86, Trax had the dancers in mind and bumped "Can You Feel It?" to the A2, giving the floor oriented "Washing Machine" top billing. Officially the first record Theo Parrish ever bought, and an enduring classic of the Chicago house scene, the pyschotic and hypnotic force of "Washing Machine" is just as powerful now as it was back in the day.
