I’m not usually one to put out tracks with anything other than the music on it, but a Pete Tong essential is always a special case. For the last few years quite a few of my favorite musicians have been featured on Tong’s show. And never have I ever seen such a prominent music influence like him promote such acts so far away from the mainstream scene. Tong is just as relevant as he was back in the late 80’s at the crack of dawn in house music. I actually just caught him on the Pump Up the Volume documentary // Educate yourself!
In this not so recent Pete Tong essential, Ben Pearce is introduced with his ‘What I Might Do’ track just over a year ago. It may be dated when it comes to houses’ rapid growth, but it is just as relevant as any house on the market today. Still lovin’ those deep chords in house right now.
I get the pleasure of seeing Mr. Rathsman tonight at Mighty in San Francisco along with the rest of the French Express label. The label houses some of my favorite funk & disco acts, including my very favorite, the headliner Moon Boots. I’ve been all over Moon Boots for a few years now, but this is my first taste of Rathsman with his ‘Feel What I Feel’ track. I’m sure I’ll be feeling whatever they put on tonight.
