Forgotten Treasure: The Poets “Emotion” (1993)

House / Techno

The origin of this track is a bit strange. Taken from an obscure Italo House EP from 1993, “Emotion” definitely has more of a New-Jersey House feel than a sun drenched mediterranean piano house song you’d hear coming out of Italy in the mid 90’s. In fact, it sounds like a lost music session from 90’s house legend Smack.

I really don’t know what the motivation for this track was because the other tracks from the NYC EP are quite different. Also the producers behind it seems to have done quite a lot of others projects ranging from more mainstream House to Progressive Techno.

What’s for damn sure is that “Emotion” is the ticket. As soon as the laid back intro starts you can get the feeling that you’re in for a treat. Some really well played organ ad libs run throughout the whole track alongside some hypnotic keys. The result is a mesmerizing deep underground house jam of the highest order.

I don’t know if it was intended, but that’s probably one of the best tribute made in honour of the New-Jersey House sound.
