This is house the way you want it…. Well, at least the way I want it. I’m sick as a dog today but still gotta go to work, and keep that ship afloat. Soooo – I need a litte kick. this is the kind of House-house that so much of the crappy dubstep and euro-trash progressive and trance and fist-pumping jersey shore bullshit has people overlooking, due to bad taste.
This is the kind of house that get people movin, groovin, shuckin and jivin.
DJing events primarily in the Northeast since the early 2000’s. Funk and Swing adept, Mike D is renowned for his crowd moving, jack-driven selections.
I tried to stick with a more Chicago/Jackin’ House feel rather than going my usual route of funky/disco house. I hope you all enjoy it just as much as my others. ~Mike D

The set was recorded live 2002.09.08 but don’t let that fool you, this is some outstanding house beats, tracks and mixing from an outstanding producer from back in those days, Tim Deluxe.
If you’re not familiar with Essential Mixes, you should be. They happen every week on BBC Radio 1 over in the UK, but you can usually listen to them online, and if you’re like me, you can plug into your stereo and bang it out, or if you’re out with your friends and have a fancy ass phone and the right kind of car stereo, you can groove with it in your car.
No tracklisting over at Soundcloud so I have take the liberty of posting it here:
DJ Falcon And Thomas Bangalter – So Much Love To Give [Roule]
I looked up some Lifelike mixes and happened across this and decided, of, wtf… I may as well share it. It’s a NuDisco style mix, with some coolness. Something I can most definitely write to. But I didn’t write this post so you can listen to me blah blah all day.
