King Kerri Chandler is returning to Watergate Records this September with a new single entitled ‘Checkmate’.
One of the pioneering forces in deep house returns to the Berlin based label after his Watergate 15 mix CD and his The Watergate Files 12-inch in 2014. This upcoming single features remixes from Dutch techno legend Steve Rachmad and Berlin based DJ Cinthie, who is also a resident at Watergate.
Kerri’s 1993 12-inch release ‘She’s Crazy’ under his Grampa alias is getting a re-release with Abigail Adam’s foward-thinking Movin’ Records. Grampa was one of Kerri Chandler’s most important projects, it involved the production mind of his collaborator Yahya McDougald and the vocals of his grandfather, Calvin Reed, Sr.
