Alright, party people. Ready for a collection of house tracks that will make your speakers quake and your booty shake, straight out of Crooklyn, no less? Then check out HENRY STREET BOMBS VOL. II, a virtual tour of the New York house scene featuring the city's hottest producers as your guides. Local house maven Armand Van Helden (who's a huge star in clubby places like London and Paris) gets the party started with his underground smash "The Funk Phenomena," which gives way to barnstormers by Todd Terry ("Never Get Enough"), Johnick ("Play the World"), and Kenny "Dope" Gonzalez ("Five-O-Fantasy"). And if that's not enough to make you feel like a V.I.P. at Twilo, check out Furious George's disco epic "Henry Street Hustle," or Dirty Harry's drug soaked "Deep in Vibe."

It is a rare day that a domestic dance compilation is actually worth its weight in aluminum foil, but with 10 deliciously dirty tracks customized for hardcore partying and clubbing, N.Y.C. style, HENRY STREET BOMBS VOL. II joyfully bucks the trend.
