The second release on CWPT marks the label°«s debut reissue, delving into the most propulsive corner of label-founder Palms Trax°«s collection in order to deliver a rare and foundational record from Chicago house music history. Recorded in 1987, Rog°«e°«s °∆Body Fidelity°« would have surely ticked all of Ron Hardy°«s boxes and then jacked them right back out again. The alias of proto-house hero Reginald Rodgers collaborating with vocalist Tanya Stevens, °∆Body Fidelity°« is at once sensual, playful and commanding, the scent of freedom, sexuality and new musical horizons potent across each of the four distinct cuts. The °∆Radio Mix°« offers the most upfront blend, a full-bodied mix that once filled the local Chicago airwaves with Stevens°« permissive and persuasive performance. Elsewhere, Rog°«e breaks the track down to its core elements for alternate DJ sensibilities. His °∆Percussapella°« mix is a raw, rhythmic trip that erupts with acidic licks, whereas the °∆House Club°« mix is pure dancefloor pleasure sculpted in what would soon become the classic mold. Finally, analog freaks and the sleaze-adjacent will find the most allure in the instrumental °∆Bass-Ment°« mix.
