We are delighted to welcome back Detroit’s Rick Wade to the Landed Records imprint.

A guy who needs no introduction in the House and Disco music scene, Rick’s stable career as a DJ and producer has spanned more than two decades. Treating the world to some of the best loved Deep House and Angry Disco tracks, it’s easy to see why he’s such a well loved and respected artist.

We are also delighted that Geoff Pesche from Abbey Road Studios is back on the mastering and has worked his alchemy on the release.

The Adjustment Of Status EP spins a terrific story of Raw House music and Angry Disco – two sounds where Rick is well and truly on top of his game.

A1: Ancient Tongues – Original Mix: Rick kicks off the EP in true Wade style with a solid, raw and moody number, which warms your cockles from the very start. Deep and loose bongos conspire with a rumbling bass and stirring jazzy keys to create a warm, moving track with a real late-night edge. A must-have for any Deep House DJ.

B1. The Day B4 Forever – Original Mix: Moving on with a lush, laid-back beauty, tightly knitted drums build a tough vibe from the off, followed by a smooth, low-end, grooving bass, backed up with lush, floaty keys. The Day B4 Forever takes you on an intensely moving journey from start to finish. Classic Rick Wade.

B2. Daddy’s Theme – Original Mix: Fun, funky and full of excitement, this is an upbeat Angry Disco track with the spirit and vibe to lift a room from its foundations! Daddy’s Theme is a super party track guaranteed to get the party started. Full of soul, feeling and delicious musical elements. Timeless classic!

This limited edition, hand-stamped and numbered, orange 12” Vinyl is definitely one not to miss. Play it loud!
