dattrax: Hello Everyone. Welcome to where house music resides. If you like house, you'll love it after taking this mix for a ride.

There are no guarantees in life, but if you hear house music and it speaks to you, the least it will do is put a smile on your face and brighten your day.

If it doesn't connect,  then I'm sure there's another form of music that you'll love out there. Keep exploring.

I want to thank you for stopping by and trying out my mixes. I appreciate you and hope you'll enjoy listening and dancing to the house music that moves me.

Put together with love in musical collages that I create to amuse myself, fuel my curiosity and act as an outlet to work out and work through my negative thoughts and emotions. It's therapeutic,

I make each mix for two people. Myself and then for my best friend, Jimmy. If I don't love it, then delete. Back to the drawing board another time.

If Jim likes a mix, then I'm extremely happy.

When anyone else likes a mix I've made, then that's just extra blessings and more gravy on top.

"Music is probably the only real magic I have encountered in my life. There's not some trick involved with it. It's pure and it's real. It moves, it heals, it communicates and does all these incredible things."
Tom Petty

I hope that you are working to fulfill your goals and dreams. You beat or ignore any voice that seeks to be an obstacle, especially the one between your ears.

I just wanted to say that to you before my house-related rant or thoughts.

House has endlessly fascinated me since I was 15.

I met some friends from a high school downtown Toronto called Jarvis Collegiate through a mutual friend while I was going to one in North York called George S. Henry, which is just north of the city. (currently, North York, along with 24 other urban, suburban, and rural municipalities, is part of the "GTA" or the "Greater Toronto Area").

They loved to listen, mix and dance to house music vinyl records.

After a few records, I was hooked. This structure of four four beats with endless creative possibilities within. It was infectious. I got goosebumps. I felt something in my gut. I automatically smiled.

I'm sorry, Ladies and Gents, but Podomatic recently added a 4,000-character limit on episode descriptions, so Storytime will have to continue in the next mix's show notes. All the best to you in your new 2024. Go plan in detail, put on a good attitude each day and work. Go get yours.

How do we describe the dattrax sound? Always Fun, Tech-Fused, Funky-Foot Stompin', Carved Deep and Woven & Laced with Sweet Smooth Hands in the Air Vocals... Strictly House Music- always dattrax.

I just gave it a prompt: "Create an Asian man in a ninja costume standing in front of a DJ mixer and CD turntables."

Mind blown. LMAO
