MUSIC: Vinyl is King at Noble Square with Boo Williams’ Reissue
This summer, indie label Noble Square Recordings welcomed Chicago’s best kept secret Boo Williams into the fold, resurrecting two B-side tracks from his rare 1999 release, Fruits of the Spirit EP. Filled with deep House goodness, the out-of-stock EP is one of the most sought-after and a quintessential testament of Williams’ genius.
Noble Square presents Crying Black Man/Changes as a full 12″ vinyl package. The first track from the DJ/producer is a timeless groove with powerful spoken word samples. On the flip side, Changes, gives us a funky Strictly Jaz Unit classic with strong electronic tendencies and a masterful blend of soulful rhythms and synths.
Another point of interest from Noble Square: The Crying Black Man master tape was never found after an “intense search from label head Ricardo Miranda, but we made it work anyhow.”
