society basement sessions: Dalston superstore
Regarded by many as The Voice of House Music, Robert Owens has become one of the figures most associated with the late-’80s golden era of Chicago house. Robert grew up singing in a church, but it was whilst working as a DJ in 1985 that he met pioneering Chicago producer Larry Heard and the pair formed Fingers Inc. There are very few names with as long a list of classic tracks under their belt; from ‘Bring Down The Walls’ to ‘Tears’, to ‘I’ll Be Your Friend’ to ‘It’s Over’. This is a rare opportunity to catch a Chicago legend in such an intimate setting, playing classic Chicago House and the tracks that make him jack.
