While back home in Chicago I had a chance to go by Pier 31 with my sister. Saw some old friends and met some new ones. Heard a lot of great DJ's that night. Added some new music and some tracks played that night in this mix.

This one was so smooth I had to re-recorded it with minimal drops.
This a tribute to some of the house music played at those clubs in the 80's. Growing up in Chicago during that time was a great time for house music. There were great DJ/Prod like Ron Hardy, Frankie Knuckles, Steve 'Silk' Hurley, Chip E. and Mr. Fingers spinning parties every weekend. This little project made me appreciate their work even more.
Every Saturday in Chicago we had WBMX and the Hotmix 5 playing a house music mix and everyone had a mix tape in their boom box. Songs played in this mix were songs you would only hear in the clubs. I will admit I enjoy listening to the older house music more than I do mixing it.
This mix is dedicated to some childhood friends of mine no longer with us to hear this mix: Tonya McClendon, 'Rickman' a.k.a. Anthony Von Rickman, Victor Falls, Yusef Asad and Andre Gay. Miss you guys.
