VIRGO
(RADICAL RECORDS, 1989)

Joe Muggs

... "This is not (just) self-indulgence – it’s highly relevant to whatVirgo is. The majority of fans of the album probably were in a similar position to me, either not cool enough or not old enough (or not even born) when it came out, yet it remains relevant to this day. Not as a “retro” record, not as a signifier of dance music past, but as a perfect encapsulation of the geometries of house. It’s a metaphor I’ve used before, but when you hear something as perfectly designed as this, it’s like getting an amazing chair – one that is comfortable, beautiful, refined and usable every day. When you get something like that, regardless of its age, do you then abandon it or declare it obsolete or decide to attach a fifth leg to it just because your neighbours get a different chair made of some new construction material?" Joe Muggs

     One of the positive aspects of living in a reissue culture is that people who didn’t get their props first time round do so on the rebound. M. and  E.  are two such guys. They released only three records in their short-lived career, but those first two (under the names M.E. and Virgo Four, released on Chicago’s legendary Trax label), were compiled into their eponymous album Virgo. ... the album is regularly described as “the greatest house album you’ve never heard.” You can, however, knock the “n” off that description ....
