medicinall I have been collecting Ron Trent and Prescription records since the mid 90's. Ron Trent is a rare artist, he is consistent on his production and his tracks are guaranteed to create an eargasm. His music can be played anytime during a set. He can be used as filler to warm a room up or as a major creeping banger to flip the crowd out. He is a rare breed in that his DJ skills are as amazing as his production. This album has given me a clean remastered version of all my favorites. Favorite track: Foot Therapy.

Albert Freeman Would have been essential if it were only reissues, but they went and dug up unreleased tracks & oddities good enough to make collectors of this music drop for it. Even owning some of the classic titles, having the ones included here & the extras plus Rush Hour's classy, top-quality presentation makes this a must.

about

Prescription, the label founded by Ron Trent & Chez Damier in the early 90ties, distills their musical essence with a monumental 6LP anthology boxset! Holds numerous classics that have been out of press for years,

After over two decades of innovation, Ron Trent captures the essence of the legendary Prescription imprint with a monumental 6LP boxset. “Prescription: Word, Sound and Power” presents the groundbreaking Chicago based house label’s anthology, holding milestone songs that have been out of press for years + four previously unreleased tracks.

*Prescription Records defined the 1990s deep house sound. Chez Damier and Ron Trent started the label in 1993, released some two-dozen singles in a four-year span, many of which attained legendary status on the underground scene. “Chez Damier and I started the label, because we had the idea to take a certain level of fidelity and bring that fidelity to what people call tracks. Tracks being drum orientated Chicago rhythm tracks with a minimalistic melody. We were playing with that idea, expounding a point of
that minimalistic aspect and making it more complex”, Trent explains.

Ron Trent was born in Massachusetts but raised in Chicago, listening to jazz and learning percussion. He began DJing in 1982, playing at area high schools. His first EP, containing the epic instrumental“Altered States,” was released on Armando Gallop’s Warehouse Records in 1990. Chez Damier (Anthony Pearson) grew up in Chicago, where he danced at the Warehouse as a youth. He left for Detroit in the 1980s, helping to open the Music Institute and working A&R for Kevin Saunderson’s label, KMS. Damier and Trent met while Damier was visiting Chicago and immediately hit it off.

Today, Prescription is cited by countless producers as a major influence. “It’s a very dub experimental label... sound bites, samples, rhythms, and a lot of ethereal stuff, too,” Trent expounds—not to mention. Prescription’s embrace of heavy sub-bass. Concludes Trent, “It was ahead of its time, definitely.”
