Screamin’ Rachael has been named the “Queen of House Music” by Billboard Magazine. She was the first house artist to sign a major label deal and also launched the Hip House sound when she recorded Fun with Bad Boys with her mentor and friend, Afrika Bambaataa.
Born Rachael Cain – Rachael’s collaborations with notable artists including Bambaataa, Marshall Jefferson, Colonel Abrams, Grandmaster Melle Mel and others has resulted in a string of hits such as Real Thing and Rock Me which have made her club royalty. She has been the subject in a number of books, documentaries, and films including The History of House Music, Nightclubbing, The Last Party, Techno Style and the recent Hollywood release Party Monster.
On Don’t Make Me Lonely, Rachael returns to her strong Chicago alternative roots by working on the production with Van Christie of Die Warzau, who’s sound stretches the limits of house with its electronic textures and homage to acid. The house mix is brilliantly executed by Jere McAllister / Mr. Ali. Also be sure to check of DJ Crash & Collino’s banging extended mix.
