Strong support from:
Laurent Garnier ""if i would have to choose one album released within the last 5 years that defines the real spirit of house music ,it would have to be the new Kerri Chandler's album . Play any track realy loud on a good sound system and you'll know what i mean. In complete contrast of the over produced tracks around at the moment, this album is stripped to the bone and goes straight to the point . It's raw ,fat ,funky as hell and makes every single parts of your body wanting to move. ABSOLUTELY BRILLIANT."

Kerri Chandler's presentation of "Computer Games"
My love for computers and programming games began about 24 years ago with a machine called the Challenger 2P. My best friend Stephen Thomas had gotten it for Christmas and I just got my second Technics SL-B1 and a Gemini mixer. What a Wonderful Christmas for a couple of 14 year olds. I think the only thing that didn't make us both nerds is that I was a DJ and we just practiced all the time. But when we weren't messing around with turntables, we would both start learning how to program this Machine(Challenger 2P). So every day we would sit there and take turns at his house programing this machine which was in "Basic". Neither one of us could type so it took days to get a page of code done, But it was magic when we got the programing right! The first game we made was a game that had the USS enterprise shooting a little black and white dot, (We used an old Black and white TV for a monitor). But WE WERE HOOKED!! This began my love for music and computers.
Kraftwerk became a huge part of my being, wondering how they made their machines, There was this company not to far where I lived, that still exists, called The Electronic Barn. We would get parts and hack the Machines and build things to make music and whatever else we could dream up. The parts were cheap, so we were able to experiment. After that we got hold of all sorts of other Machines and modified and programmed them: Trs80's (trash 80), Timex Sinclair, Atari 400 and 800, Commodore 64, Pet 2001, IBM PC JR, Magnavox Odyssey(with the voice module), But no matter what machine we used, we always programmed some kind of game. So about 3 years went by and I got my hands on a Compaq portable (it wasn't really all that portable by today's standards) but that's when I learned how machines and music could be combined (Mpu 401 and Texture). So here it is 24 years later and I'm re-living my childhood and digging out all these old machines to make music again. I hope you enjoy this project as much as I did making it. It has always been for me a labor of love to tame these machines and make them have a soul of there own.
DJ Deep's presentation of "Computer Games"
Working with Kerri Chandler has always been a dream come true. His passion, dedication, love for the music and sounds is an everyday inspiration for me. I was so happy that he trusted me enough for releasing this very original project "Computer Games" on Deeply Rooted House records. When Kerri released the first twelve inch of "Computer Games" (DRH013) (featuring "Space Invaders/the panic"), i was really thrilled ! As i loved his very subtle way of paying tribute to some of his favorite games, and still being so HOUSE and original at the same time. This album project is very far away from the often over done use of video games sounds into electronic music.
Kerri really worked hard, with all his passion to produce absolutely unique House tracks that capture the vibe and feel of some of his favorite games and machines ! With his own magic he managed to produce some unique House gemms on this album and after trying the tracks in a few clubs worldwide Kerri and i realised that those grooves make any dancefloor go crazy !
