It's been over a year since the last mix - and frankly, I almost gave up hope with house music. It seemed liked there were very few quality releases coming out and none of better ones really stood out either. But come the end of 2006 and everything moved forward again, namely the sound from Innervisions was creating a buzz and rightly so - Ame and the rest of the crew were creating something new and unique. And there I was, listening to the music called "house" once again and getting excited like a little kid.

A little about the mix itself. This is the future sound of house and I hope it will evolve into something even more daring taking influences from everywhere. And here at DR, house is a very loose term describing electronic music with soul, groove and intense rhythms. Maybe modern dance music would be a more appropriate term, but who cares anyways. Some of the highlights of this mix: Stefan Goldmann - what a simple but catchy hook, Lars Behrenroth remix - I can relate to that, Chateau Flight - pure genius.

I will try my best to make more mixes this year, I already selected the records for the next one. I have wowed to make a few guest mixes which I've promised a loooong time ago. Let's hope 2007 is a busy year at camp DR. Stay tuned as they say.
