San Soda is On Fire!!


This dude is on fire. Lookin´like teenager, but producing like a pioneer, strange combination.
I found this short net interview where he explains the early stage of his musical evolution.

What were your early experiences with music and how did you get into production?

I joined a local radio station at the age of 15 and started taking care of the sports section on Sunday afternoons with a friend of mine. Later on we started a weekly radio show and played mainstream music. Fascinated by the ‘real’ DJs, we started to buy records and got the opportunity to play at some big parties thrown by the radio station. The music we played was mostly rubbish; I don’t think I kept any more than 10 of the records I bought in that period – I sold all the bad stuff. I started to go to a small bar in Deinze called Clues where resident DJs were playing every Friday. After a couple of visits I started getting fascinated by their underground, non-mainstream music.

School Of House...Mix

Yo,
I´m chillin´at home and recovering myself from flu! I can´t think of better way to heal, than listening quality house music.
This moody mixtape of current, intellectual and deep house music was made by our beloved friend Dj Hirviö. He´s an true indie fan and enthusiastic music lover.
NO DOUPT , he understands house music as well!

LEGENDS # 1: RON HARDY

Hey Ya´ll,

this is a first post of a legends series in our blog.
If i think of legends in House Music, Ron Hardy is the first name to call out. This dude necessarily is not the most influental pioneer out there, but undisputedly the most under appreciated.
He passed away, after tragic downfall in 1991, but he left us so much to live on..... Musicwise, click the link below, and you know what i mean.


Ya heard, ! The way he combined Soul, Disco and early House records is amazing, not to mention the music selection. He made his own edits and played some gigs with Reel to Reel tapes and he even played records backwords..


His life was a whirlwind, from rags to riches and backwards.
Yes, drugs were involved and yes he liked to have fun with various sexual groups. But the question is , why didin´t he get shouted out while he still lived, like the king of House he was.
Maybe he partied too hard or he just didn´t release any significant tracks like his counterparts? Or did He?


However, He didn´t keep a lot noise from himself, that we know. Otherwise this question remains to be answered. Least we can do is to cherish his legacy by enjoying life to through music like there´s no tomorrow.!!!
