Product Description

After over two decades of innovation, Ron Trent captures the essence of the legendary Prescription imprint with a monumental 6LP anthology boxset. Prescription: Word, Sound and Power presents the groundbreaking Chicago based house label’s anthology, holding milestone songs that have been out of press for years and four previously unreleased tracks.

Prescription Records defined the 1990s deep house sound. Chez Damier and Ron Trent started the label in 1993, released some two-dozen singles in a four-year span, many of which attained legendary status on the underground scene. “Chez Damier and I started the label, because we had the idea to take a certain level of fidelity and bring that fidelity to what people call tracks. Tracks being drum orientated Chicago rhythm tracks with a minimalistic melody. We were playing with that idea, expounding a point of that minimalistic aspect and making it more complex”, Trent explains.

Today, Prescription is cited by countless producers as a major influence. “It’s a very dub experimental label… sound bites, samples, rhythms, and a lot of ethereal stuff, too,” Trent expounds — not to mention Prescription’s embrace of heavy sub-bass. Concludes Trent, “It was ahead of its time, definitely”.
