From DJ Bio: "...I was in love with house and DJing when I realized that it wasn't music in the sense of Mozart, but a form of self-expression - participating in making a musical collage like a musical cut and paste.


You get to pick your favourite songs, how fast or slow, how long you want to play them, which part of the song you want to highlight, whether you want to cut it up or layer it and whether you want the feel to be smooth or charging, whether you want...

The combinations are endless w/ house music and that much fun!"

dattrax: Welcome to all the people out there who love house music. This is where house resides. I just turned 50!!! Old, bald, Chinaman. but... I have loved house music since I was 15 years old. House has been an outlet for me to release ALL my negative energy... whether I'm listening to house music. Hunting, finding, mixing, dancing or enjoying house music. Talking about it with other people. Dreaming about combinations. Every track that I love.  I dream of how to introduce it to people. It's all about the combos!! Transforming the negative—anger, despair, hopelessness—and turning that energy into something beautiful, something that will make you smile. As you smile, you have a vivacious spark that grows into something good. Because we all need a little encouragement, we all have dreams and plans. We want to design our lives. It must first be the image in our minds in detail. Our real battles are with our minds. Stop talking bad to yourself. You fucked up. Great. It's over. Done. Forget about it. Let's dance.  Love everyone. Avoid negative. That's my Chinese fortune cookie rant for you. Much love, dattrax.I mixed and danced my heart out on this one—almost five hours!!! I made some goodies for you. Enjoy this journey. You're going to LOVE THIS!!!!!Connect with us!!! Please tell us how you feel through these sessions. How are you?

dattrax:  Welcome Fellow House Fiends. This is where house music resides. How have you been?“...if a painting really works down in your heart and changes the way you see, and think, and feel, you don’t think, ‘oh, I love this picture because it’s universal.’ ‘I love this painting because it speaks to all mankind.’ That’s not the reason anyone loves a piece of art. It’s a secret whisper from an alleyway. Psst, you. Hey kid. Yes you.”Donna Tartt - The Goldfinch, 2014.I read this and thought about how specifically art touches some and not others.How that is okay and as it should be.This has massive implications for any artist.Zero pressure.Some are drawn to your art. Your medium of choice. Your style. Your techniques. Or whatever combination.Some aren't drawn no matter what and for whatever reason. Nothing anyone can do about it.This also relates to a post I read a few years ago about how some people physically react to music.Some people like me.Also relates to two people in my life, both music producers. One was into electronic music in general, and the other into house music.They both observed after listening to many of my mixes that most of the tracks I played were in minor keys.I don't have any classical music training, so I asked them what that means.Take care of yourself.Cheers, dattrax---------------How do we describe the dattrax sound?

I make each mix for two people: myself and my best friend, Jimmy. If I don't love it, then delete it. Back to the drawing board another time. If Jim likes a mix, then I'm extremely happy.

dattrax: WELCOME!!! I don't know if you came by accident or intention, but thank you for taking a listen to this new house music mix. If you love house, then you'll have no regrets here. If you don't love house, then thank goodness that the internet is vast and you can always find your tribe who you can connect with and speak your language and can energize you. There's nothing like house music for personal expression. In mixing or dancing; giving or receiving. There's nothing more important than creating art that personally moves you.Turning personal negative, pain, suffering or trauma energy into creative beauty. I wish all the best in your daily lives. I hope that you love, forgive and express often.Until the next dattrax mix is completed.Cheers, dattrax***Working on a t-shirt and baseball cap online store with dattrax and house music related designs.

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.

Welcome, Dear House Music Lovers, to where the house resides. Thank you for stopping by and giving my mixes a listen.I can't believe that it's already the end of the year. What have you learned? What are you planning for 2024?Are you excited to dive into 2024 and accomplish your goals?Just wanted to share three things that I've learned this year. If it can help you, then that's great. If not, then pls ignore.1) Each day, I must win the battle against the negativity drifting into my mind. I have to be my #1 cheerleader because no one else will2) Consistency creates emotional stability on a personal level or in your team when you're a manager/leader of people3) Identity drives behaviour. In each area of life, the image of the person I want to become makes decisions binary, yes or no, regarding choices that either move me closer to or further away from my desired identityAll the best to you in the last few days of 2023 and this coming 2024!!Cheers, dattrax---------------How do we describe the dattrax sound?

dattrax: Welcome, Fellow House Music Aficionados!! This is where house music resides.I make recorded mixes to satisfy my curiosity in this art form, release stress, and engage in self-therapy. But, back in the day, it was our DJ moniker back in the day, "dattrax" was for live events... We are a dynamic DJ duo hailing from Toronto, Ontario, Canada! Jim and Dat, lifelong friends since we were 16 and passionate House Fiends with over three decades of musical camaraderie, comprise us.Our world revolves around house music and anything we love that can be mixed with house music instrumentals. Dive into our shared passion, enjoy the tunes (there are now over 160+ mixes on this site/mobile app, "Podomatic" - search for 'house music by dattrax'), and don't forget to share your thoughts after listening — your feedback is our inspiration.In the words of our original DJ bio written a lifetime ago: "For us, house music is more than just underground dance music; it's the ultimate form of self-expression, a musical cut and paste where you craft your unique sonic journey. Choose your favourite tracks, set the pace, highlight the moments that resonate with you, EQ the sound ranges that move you and create a musical experience that's uniquely yours."We're committed to delivering our best, investing time, energy, and love. Our discerning taste is evident in our meticulous vinyl and mp3 selection process - only buying the tracks that give us goosebumps, elicit a 'Wowzers' in our guts or make us raise our fists in the air.Join us on this musical adventure, where the combinations are endless, the energy is infectious, and every track is chosen with care and mixed with respect to the creators of the tracks. Welcome to the dattrax sound! I wish you all the best in your corner of the world as the holiday season approaches and the possibilities of a new outcome for each of us in the new year.---------------How do we describe the dattrax sound?

dattrax: Welcome Fellow Fans of House Music to where house resides. How are you doing? How are the many areas of your life in the part of the world where you are?I was thinking the other day about the life of a good house music track and how many people it touches and influences. Imagine the producer who creates a track and all that it takes to accomplish that. Then, a DJ finds the track on an MP3 site to purchase or a download promo on a music platform.Then, the DJ listens to the track repeatedly to learn about it. To funny enjoy it. Then, they mix it along with a set of tracks that they have organized for a live DJ set or a recorded mix.Then someone listens to it. How do they feel? Where are they? Who are they with? What new memories are created? Do they share with friends on social media? Close friends? Does that track get multiple plays? Does it get experienced in different environments? Does it get consumed during various personal activities?It's a long and beautiful journey that touches, influences and brings positive emotions to many many people.It crosses geography, gender, race, religion and anything else that makes us different and yet we're united by a shared experience, joy and love.All the best to you in your daily battle against the negative of your mind. May you move closer and more decisively towards your dreams and goals.---------------How do we describe the dattrax sound?

dattrax: Welcome, My Fellow House Lovers!! Welcome to where house music resides.  For me, I've always made mixes for two people: myself and my best friend and DJ partner, Jim. Anyone else likes it, and it's gravy and makes me happy. When Jim likes or loves a mix, then I'm thrilled. If I don't love it and don't want to listen to it repeatedly, then I don't post it on my Podomatic site or share it. I'd delete it after one listen and try again another time.Choosing House Music is only a matter of available time. As I get older, there's less time. There are levels to each craft and sections within each. You can go deeper and deeper into any endeavour. Everything demands time to try, test/ experiment, adjust and implement. You make choices that are the best for your situation.In 1989, I was 15 and in grade 10.I got into house music 30+ years ago. I started buying vinyl records and DJ'ing at 18, and it's been a lifelong addiction ever since.  I've told myself many, many times over the last 30+ years of DJ'ing that when it stops being fun, then I'll stop wasting tons of time and money on it.This addiction to house is probably not going to leave me. I packed up my records and equipment for 2-3 years. Then I heard a house mix by a local Toronto, and it blew my mind. I jumped on to Beatport a few nights later and bought a crazy batch of tunes.I wish you well and hope for all the best to you. Thank you for taking a listen to my sessions.---------------How do we describe the dattrax sound?

Episode 158: Love Letter by dattrax » Strictly House Music
dattrax: Welcome Fellow House Fanatics to the place where house music resides. I can't believe that September is almost over. Where does the time go?I remember thinking often from age 20 and under why time was so freaking slow. Then you hit 35 and up, and time races by relentlessly. You blink, and a decade goes by.I hope that you're setting out to accomplish your goals. That you've created a plan, put due dates on every important milestone, that you're measuring your progress, that you're rewarding yourself along the way. Over the last six years of my separation/divorce, I've had to fix different areas of my life and have new goals for the rest of 2023. I'm only sharing with you what I do myself. We connect through house music, but we can share a word of encouragement here or there. Most people don't get any. We all need a gentle push, a hug and a hi-five occasionally.I'm very thankful you chose to stop by and listen to my mixes. Thank you so much. I appreciate it. I hope that you enjoy this mix and come back for more. There are over 155 mixes here, and with good house music, it's timeless. If you've never heard a track, it doesn't matter how old it is because it's NEW to you. One of the beauties of house.---------------How do we describe the dattrax sound?

That's the best for maximum fun and tactile feel and control.
