Thanks to all of the downloaders who helped me get past the first round of the competition and also to the voters who selected my set as the winner. There are loads of talented DJs on this site, so I tried my best to come up with something unique and fun. As always I used Ableton live to put this 27 minute set together. I used parts of about 15 tracks along with 14 channels in live, my own synth, basslines, pecussion and effects to create a unique dance music experience. Although Frankie knuckles is a tremendous musical talent and DJ i found it hard to use one of his tracks in my set but wound up using parts of two along with parts of an interview he did a few years ago for the intro and outro. I also used a great melodic breakbeat track by FL Fagos, who is a very talented and unique producer/DJ that features his work on this site. God Bless Frankie. He was a pioneer and gave his life to the art of DJing before it was considered a cool or respectable profession. Those hearing this for the first time, I hope you enjoy!
