A little while ago we reported on the debut album from Detroit luminary Rick Wilhite, Analogue Aquarium which is being released by Chicago’s Still Music imprint. The album marked a seminal moment in Wilhite’s career as it is in fact, his first album in over 20 years at the forefront of Detroit’s seminal musical scene.
To celebrate the release Still Music and Rick Wilhite are giving away a free download of one of the best tracks off the album, ‘City Bar Dancing’.
‘City Bar Dancing’ is taken from Analogue Aquarium which is out now.
It’s quite astonishing to discover that Rick Wilhite has not yet released an album. As one of the leading figures of Detroit’s Music scene and one of techno’s most revered characters, it would only seem fit that after 20 years in the game, he had released an album or two.
However, Rick ‘ The Godson’ Wilhite is only now preparing for the release of his debut long player – coming out on Chicago favorite Still Music. Analogue Aquarium is a collection of mostly new, previously unreleased tracks of original production, and features collaborations with the likes ofTheo Parrish, Marcellus Pitman, Osunlade and of course the man with silkiest of vocals; Billy Paul.
Rick Wilhite is the man behind the epochal Vibes New & Rare Music record store in Detroit as well as being one of the founding members of the 3 Chairs.
