dattrax: It was with great sadness as we saw facebook light up with 'Rest in Peace' shout outs to "Romanthony" (real name Anthony Moore, 1967 – May 2013). In Toronto we grew up with Romanthony records like his four-vinyl "Romanworld" compilation, and singles in that album and pre-dated that album like "Now You Want Me" (a Toronto anthem at 3am sat. ngt. warehouse sessions- one of our favourite instrumental house tracks). Other fav vinyls like "Testify", "Trojan Horse", "Bring U Up" and everyone's favorite "Let Me Show You Love".
Time moves past us relentlessly and we have to be thankful and make the best of each day. Mr. Moore's music will influence many many house lovers, djs, producers & vocalists to come. The great thing about this house music we love is that it's built on the shoulders of giants. The great house music you hear today was built on the sweat and love of house music 20+ yrs ago. Every track we heard, every DJ we danced to, every mix we felt contributed memories, mind space and reenforces our passion for house.
Enjoy this mix as it opens you to the house tracks that we love right now. Close your eyes, turn it up loud and join us and let your emotions move with each track as we tell you this new story. In this mix, featuring tracks by these UNBELIEVABLE HOUSE VOCALISTS & PRODUCERS! Thank you for just doing your thing and putting out such great tracks!!

from DJ Bio: "...I was in love with house and DJing when I realised that it wasn't music in the sense of Mozart, but a form of self expression- participating in making a musical collage. Like a musical cut and paste. You get to pick your favourite songs, how fast or slow, or how long you want to play it, which part of the song you want to highlight, whether you want to cut it up or layer it, whether you want the feel to be smooth or charging, whether you want... The combinations are endless w/ house music, and that much fun!"
Just so that you know that we are giving you our best as far as time, energy and love...
We only buy 8-12 vinyl records for every 100 records we listen to. Jim & I have probably bought over 60crates of house over the years- that's over 6000 records! We only buy 15-35 tracks for every 1000-2500 mp3's that we listen to. Sometimes less. We are beat junkies and buy every month!!
How do we describe our sound?
