*written by Shimmy for Electronica Life

There is something undeniably sultry about the way deep house makes you feel, makes you dance, and makes you move. The secret is out… deep house is hot and on the rise. Beatport recently released a chart containing the last 10 years of data and not to my surprise, this is how it panned out:beatport_deep_house

It was routine for me.

There I was, late into a Thursday morning in Los Angeles in 2001, with my Netscape Navigator pointed to the internet radio site di.fm. Several thousand users from around the globe, with different backgrounds, different ethnicities, different cultures, were about to unify in the name of music. There was no iTunes, no Pandora, no…

I would have to have to say that I am a believer in serendipity, at least to some degree. When it comes to the entertainment industry “make it or break it” scenarios can result from a handshake, a well-worded email, or from someone saying “you have to see this or listen to this.” There’s no replacement for hard work but no one frowns when the stars…

Open Your Heart To Its Destiny – An Interview w/ Ryan Farish

*written by A’Damaged Pro for Electronica Life

After all, they have a library of finished tracks and ideas they worked on together that have yet to be released and Maarten can continue his and Paul’s dream of making the music that they heard on the radio as kids.
