I’m so thrilled that I got asked to guest on the PODCAST of my old raver buddies, TORONTO HARDCORE RADIO.
It was mighty flattering being referred to as an “OLDSCHOOL legend”. I got to be on the other side of an interview, for once, and talk about stuff like accidentally becoming a RAVE MC, and getting completely wasted before my first official set, at WEMF.
Most of all, it was great to drop a mix of tunes by a bunch of the HARD DANCE producers that I really admire. I’m even lucky enough to call some of them friends.
The INTERVIEW starts @ 1:03:55, and GUEST MIX begins @ 1:11:48, but you shouldn’t miss out on all the goodness dropped by the show’s hosts, TEMPEST, XPHOX, & FRAKTL, so give the whole thing a play through, will ya?

REDMOON DEEJAY – COME AGAIN
REDMOON is a bit of an anomaly. He’s based in Singapore, and is completely open format, as far as the genre of his productions. This makes him a difficult man to market, but he has managed to triumph against the odds, scoring BIG ROOM HOUSE releases on a couple of very prominent labels. While most House producers are scared away from HARDCORE, RedMoon has no reservations about cranking up the BPM and getting stompy.
COME AGAIN is a FREE release RedMoon put up to celebrate 4 years of producing. It’s a perfect blend of OLDSCHOOL elements with more upfront sounds. It’s rare that the balance of past and present is achieved so coherently. It makes me wish Hardcore was more of a focus for him, but then I also understand that need to branch out. Creative freedom is a very precious thing.
