iIn 1987, during the early days of the Chicago house scene, producer Tony Lewis called his good friend Chuck Roberts in the middle of the night to ask if he would lay down vocals on a track he had just finished.The next day the two stepped into a West Side studio, Lewis explained to Roberts that he needed someone with a church background, someone who could speak the truth and explain to the masses “what house music is”.The eulogy recorded arrived on Rhythm Controll’s 1987 track ‘My House’, released on Catch A Beat Records. Larry Heard later sampled the vocal on his 1988 remix of ‘Can You Feel It’, solidifying Roberts’ words as arguably the most seminal piece in house music history.
