Chicago house legend Larry Heard is set to debut some previously unreleased cuts from his Mr. Fingers alias.
In a new series of releases on his Alleviated Records imprint called Vault Sessions, Heard will share never-before-heard Mr. Fingers music that wasn’t included on past EPs and singles. Vault Sessions 1 will feature four unreleased Mr. Fingers tracks, opening with “Chains,” an outtake from his 1988 LP with his group Fingers Inc., Another Side.
“To this day, we are not quite sure why this selection was not included on the project but are pleased to finally share it,” said Alleviated about “Chains.” The track features freestyle vocal work from Fingers Inc. member Ron Wilson in a classic house style.
The remaining tracks on Vault Sessions 1 include “Electronic Debris,” “Saspence,” and “Nyte Light,” to kick off the series. Preview clips from the upcoming EP are available via Clone.
Resident Advisor released a short documentary film titled How Larry Heard Made House Music Deep in 2018, highlighting some of the legendary producer’s accomplishments over the years.
Larry Heard’s Vault Sessions 1 is slated for release on December 21st via Alleviated.
