The mighty Cherrymoon Trax consortium consisted of a who’s who of Belgian artists and DJ’s who were in full control of the scene back in the day thanks to the eclectic Cherry Moon club. Over the years there have been some comings and goings but the general ethos and sound remained. They kicked off a string of top hits with their Trax series. Trax II featured this one, the impressive Let There Be House with Plastic Body Liquid Mind on the flip, an important slice of electronic music that helped shape an innovative sound.
Cherrymoon Trax featuring Yves Deruyter – In My Electric House (Original Release 1996 Bonzai Records Cat No. BR96101)
In My Electric House was the personification of what the Cherry Moon club was all about. It incorporated earlier rave sounds into the mix and added a very cool in my house vocal snippet that gave it popular appeal. A seemingly drum n bass backing section notched up the tempo on this one and propelled it to the top of many jocks tracks. A dosing of trancey synths on the breakdown took the track to greater heights and has went down as a much loved classic.
Cherrymoon Trax was a huge collective made up of the crème de la crème of Belgium’s most respected DJ’s and producers namely Bjorn Wendelen, David Brants, Eddy Weyns, Franky Kloeck, Ilya Depuydt, Kris Vanderheyden, Nico Deleu, Pascal Quatretemps, Peter Schiettekatte, Philip Dirix, Youri De Pauw and the mighty Yves Deruyter. Conflictation is a steady builder that rises to a hypnotic state that digs deep into your mind. It appeared on the 1995 Bonzai Records release, Trax III and was backed with the fantastic Loaded Again and In My House. A superb collection of tracks that filled many floors in their day.
