Argot excavates an unexplored corner of Chicago house history. Lab Work 91-96 collects the work of Chris Ike and John Kardaras, two Chicago producers with few records to their names but a wealth of compelling unreleased material waiting in their archives. The compilation highlights the pair’s particular vision and musical breadth across 14 tracks, drawn from a CD-R given to Steve Mizek in 2010 that was recently rediscovered. Lab Work was remastered in it’s entirety by Dietrich Schoenemann, sounding much at home today yet intimately connected to a formative time in Chicago house history.
