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.

Complimenting the original release come 2 completely new mixes - the first is a dubbed out masterpiece from edit-king Nick the Record alongside Dan Tyler of the Idjut Boys. Between them they take the essence of Jarvis's original and tease it out into a cavernous disco killer.

Next up comes Bawrut - man behind Ransom Note's debut release, the nu-acid anthem Ciquita. Bawrut does what he does best, throwing in Latin percussion, layers of screwball 303 burbles, and a sense of joy, all whilst keeping Boyd's original bass groove rolling.
