In 1997, London trio House of 909 released The Children We Were – an album of rolling, midtempo house gems that were as evocative as they were posh. As with many worthy releases of their day, the record was embraced by a niche audience, but overlooked on a larger scale. Deep house, with its smooth edges and soft-focus approach, was less appreciated in a scene then dominated by warehouse parties, raves and cavernous clubs.
Over the years, Cascine developed an affinity for The Children We Were, connecting with its colorful arrangements and sense of sincerity. There was a searching quality to the music, an element of exploration. The songs were stylish without taking themselves too seriously.
Cascine now reissues The Children We Were on limited-edition vinyl. The material has been remastered, the artwork redone and the record repackaged. It's an undeniably special body of work and we’re proud to release it through the lens of the label.
