This re-mix album is the first volume of what could turn out to be a classic catalog.
After the huge success of Matt Warren’s album, “Music is My Life,” founder and creative director of Wake Up! Music, Pepper Gomez – aka MyMy Lady G, got more than a bit inspired. Gathering together a group of the world’s top DJs and giving them one simple instruction – re-mix “Music if My Life.”
Of course DJs re-mix all the time while they play live and on the down lo, but this invitation to take part in an homage to the deeply personal music of Warren, who began his career in the 80s when house began, is something very special. It’s a celebration of these icons’ very own, powerful unique gifts. A spectacular coming together of creative forces, taking what was already something magical solidly to the next level.
These are truly stella acid house mixes of Warren’s Nu-House album. All conjured up by Ms Gomez’s chosen ones, DJ Spinna, Ralphi Rosario, Al Kent, DJ Lil Tal, Marcus Mixx, That Dude Dom, James Flowers and Michael A. Garza. Each of them have taken a track they loved from the album and lifted it, twisted it, stripped it and rebuilt it. What better way to celebrate the glory that is House than to offer up these transcendent ‘versions’ of this critically acclaimed record?
If you love the wonders of House music and understand the spiritual nature of a DJ’s personal journey through a beloved track, then this album will have you up out of your seat and trippin’ on the dance floor. LOVED IT!!!
