Forgotten Treasure: Moonstarr “Detriot” (2004)

“One of my classics! I used a Chroma Polaris for the pads and a matrix 1000 and octave cat for other sounds. The drums were actually a BOSS DR-660 and the reverbs were from my Roland VS-880ex. Can you believe that?!?! Amazing times yo. I’ll never forget when the Jazzanova …

Forgotten Treasure: House Of Gypsies “Another Worry” feat. Al Wise (1994)

This is house music at it’s finest. Very danceable yet soulful at the same time. The emotive vocal delivery of Al Wise, the lush atmosphere and that signature Todd Terry slammin’ beat made it an instant favorite of mine when it was discreetly released late in 1994. A fun fact …

Forgotten Treasure: Edward Louis “Holy Spirit” (2000)
