Tyree Cooper - supa dupa 80s house producer

Along with Fast Eddie, Tyree was king of the late 80s Chicago acid house and hip house sound. Both guys were probably a bit more commercial than other cohorts such as Adonis or Mike Dunn, but they were also more successful, so there you go.
According to Discogs, by 1987 acid house was already beginning to sound played out to Tyree - it was after all over 2 years since the release of Phuture's "Acid Tracks". So his contribution to the acid sound, made on a borrowed TB303, was intended to signal that acid was over. It may well have died out as quickly as it had been born if it stayed in US clubs, but it was in late 87 that the UK caught on to the whole house sound and discovered just how fucking good acid sounded on e... "Acid Over" became a hit.

Tyree though was more comfortable with the growing fusion of rap and house - hip house; most of his 80s discography is embedded in it one way or another. Together with rapper Kool Rock Steady he created 1988's monster smash "Turn Up The Bass", rivaling Fast Eddie's "Yo Yo Get Funky" as the definitive American hip house tune.
