Fresh back from smashing up the dancefloor at ADE 2013, Hold Youth waste no time in returning to the decks this Wednesday 23rd October to open the 25 years of Rex Club celebrations. A series of parties running over the next few weeks with absolute KILLER line-ups, Hold Youth will lead the revelry alongside Kerri Chandler, and a secret guest now revealed to be Cassy! As Paris prepares itself for the Rex marathon, Seuil and Le Loup of Hold Youth reflect on their all time favourite productions from house pioneer Kerri Chandler…


Top 3 Kerri productions by Seuil

Sunday Sunlight

‘Sunday Sunlight’ from the Night Moods EP came out on Metaphor in 1999 which is important because I didn’t know a lot about Kerri before this time. I used to play it at the afterhours at my hometown Reunion Island, and even when I was arrived in Paris back in the day it was an anthem, it’s all about Kerri’s vocals on this one!!! This is the kind of house music where the Lola ED agency’s artists connect… great to see my friends Apollonia are gonna repress it soon as my copy is crackling!


Bar A Thym

It’s been a while since I played ‘Bar a Thym’ but around 2005 it was a big house anthem. The production on this track is pretty amazing, it sounds so wide and fat, with the energy boiling over. One of Kerri ‘s tracks without a vocal which I really like.


Get It Off (DJ Deep edit)

I picked the Dj Deep edit of ‘get It Off’ because I didn’t know the original track from 1989 and i truly love the vibe… outer-space weird music, so sexy with this bass and heady vocal, it was really visionary music back in ’89. This record will always stay in my bag.


Top 3 Kerri productions by Le Loup

Atmospheric Beats

This was the first Kerri record I bought in my life! It was also featured in the Japanese movie « Frog River »… huge classic!


On The Side

One of my favourite Kerri records! This one is from 1998 and was put out on legendary label Subwoofer. Big combo :)


Back To The Raw (ruff  mix)

Probably the Kerri track that I have played the most in my life… it’s still in my bag, TIP!
