CHICAGO HOUSE CLASSIC: Adonis – We’re Rockin Down The House (Original Trax Record Version)


Adonis – We’re Rockin Down The House

Another classic 303 cut by Adonis on Trax Records.

Whenever I hear this I always think back to the times I heard Simon Caldwell drop this one at Mad Racket on the wooden dancefloor at Marrckville Bowling Club Sydney, it has been a while since I been to one of their parties but they always deliverd with the music, one of the few parties still flying the flag for chicago & deep house sounds  in Sydney.

Its all about THAT BASS! one of my favorites Chicago House tunes, and great to still hear it getting times played on more then a few occasions around Sydney too. I heard Simon Caldwell drop this at Mad Racket in Marrickville on more then a few occasions and also the lads at HAHA warehouse parties don’t mind pulling this one out either.

Adonis is a Chicago acid house pioneer who made his name with the classic 1986 tracks ‘No Way Back’ and ‘We’re Rockin Down The House’.

Adonis recorded many innovative and influential dance tracks. Born and raised on the West Side of Chicago, Adonis was introduced to music at a young age. He played bass guitar with several jazz and funk bands and was eventually introduced to a raw and untamed art form that was brewing in Chicago. The art form is now called house music worldwide which subsequently spawned acid house, techno, trance and drum & bass.

As “Michael A. Smith“, he was a member of the band Clockwork. They recorded “I’m Your Candy Girl”, a post-disco boogie song.
