Premiere: Boyd Jarvis – The Music Got Me (Original ’83 Instrumental)


It is with some delight that we are able to bring you an exclusive premiere of the next EP from Ransom Note Records in collaboration with House Hunting. 

First recorded in 1983 under the name Visual, Boyd Jarvis's cut The Music Got Me is one of the first true house records. A staple on the 80s New York club scene, the visionary instrumental dub was played everywhere from the Paradise Garage to Zanzibar, dance-floors packing to it's mix of throbbing bass and wooshes of analogue synth magic. 

At Ransom Note we've long been obsessed with the record, so when House Hunting's Aiden D'Araujo interviewed Boyd – and found out that we could license it – we jumped at the chance. 

Now, we present The Music Got You sounding bigger and better than ever before. Remastered from Boyd's original tapes by Keith Tenniswood at Curved Studios, The Music Got Me is pressed on limited edition, heavyweight vinyl for clarity and bass pressure. 

The EP comes with two remixes from Bawrut, and Dan Idjut/ Nick The Record. Listen to the original below:
