A little bit of a "tap on my shoulder" : ) moment: My Legends night at @rexclub If you think it was a Parisian Premiere show for most of those guests and that they were hosted on a Thursday night...: @moodymann313 @kerrichandler @joeclaussellsplayground @ricanstructionbrand @jovonn_official #michaelwatford @tommy_musto_zhm @phlashington #nickjones #carolineharding Not to forget our local French heroes: @stgermainofficial @alexfromtokyo @point_g @julienjabre #nextevidence @playin4thecity @mrdjmikel So happy to keep doing those nights through the years at Rex. Having @joeclaussellsplayground and @jeff_mills_official jam together in a "See the Light" edition of those was a highlight, as well as having @kerrichandler Jam along @satoshi_tomiie or @lillouisofficial present his forthcoming album. Legends are here to stay! A warm thank you for those pictures to a true House and Techno soldier, a dope DJ and promoter of his Technorama nights and label: @jee_technorama .

Here's a recording of a b2b mix with the legendary @bensimsofficial during one of my @deeplyrooted .fr nights at @rexclub II in 2016. Ben is not only a Techno legend and a Gentleman, but also one of the most knowledgeable persons around when it comes to Techno, House, Classics, Soul Funk Disco, Hip Hop or Reggae and Dub. Everytime i look at one of his instagram posts i get to learn about new Music, or some special 7inch pressing of a classic or unreleased 12" white label gemms etc...He also released the dope Gamma Ray Ep on my label Deeply Rooted. I have nothing but respect and amiration for him and even though we became good friends through the years, getting to spin records next to him is more than a challenge!: His passion for Music, his unmatchable technique, his groove and energy make his Dj style pure fire, so... i humbly tried and play a few records next to him, hoping i didn't break the flow or mood. The mix was never posted before. It happenned spontaneously a the end of the night . Hopefully, you can hear that it was really about two friends and Music Lovers first having fun together enjoying to share some Classics and new tracks with the audience. Link to the mix in bio

Nice memories of our night at @phonoxlondon with @jeremyunderground a couple of weeks ago . Now hoping for better days... ahead of this night i was looking through my old cassettes for a recording of a radio show Jeremy had in mind. I shared "Urei 6 it's moving" from 1997 2 weeks ago. And now you can find a link in bio to a radio Nova recording "The Underground Continues" from 06/07/1996. #thehealingpowerofmusic
Glad to see our The Deep "Earth Ep" with @julienjabre available for pre-order again on the dope re-issue label #mintcondition . Thank you to #romainbno for releasing it in the first place back in 1997 on BNO records. But most of all thank you to @julienjabre for having the patience to bare with a very impatient me back then! 😯😯😯
I started my labels @deeplyrooted .fr and House Music records in 2004. ————— On the one hand i was worried that some of my personal House favorites would disappear forever (that was 16 years before the « re-issue madness era » : ) we live in today! I used to think, « it’s weird to talk about House Music to someone who actually never heard The Burrell brothers Music, Armando’s Music or Kerri Chandler Music etc… » . So i started re-issuing some very personal favorites on House Music records, such as L.B Bad « I like to move » , « Charles Mc Dougald « That’s life », Armando Presents Mike Dearborn « 1991 (A New Age ) ». ————— On the other hand, Deeply Rooted was a way for me to personally get rid of some frustration i had from not feeing talented enough to produce the Music i wanted. In the mid- late 90’s i had been part a few releases with St Germain, Julien Jabre, Olivier Portal or Franck Roger, but it was always my friends talents that made the record relevant in my opinion. So after trying to produce some Music on my own until 2003 i then set my mind to create a platform to release my talented friend’s Music and hopefully help them get the exposure their Music deserved. I was lucky enough that first @djfranckroger then @therealdjmanoo trusted me with their Music for the two first releases on Deeply Rooted. ————— And since inviting @kerrichandler for his first Parisian gig at my Legends night at Rex in the late 90’s we became very good friends. I would visit him in New York and he came back to play for my nights in Paris many time through the years. I consider Kerri today as a Mentor, true Friend and big Brother. Back in 2004 House Music was in a « weird place » (in my opinion ), with either (over ) « polished » songs or quite cold « Minimal » tracks. We talked about it during one of our nights out in Paris Kerri went back home and played me his demo for Back to the Raw on the phone: I was so excited! Through the years it became a « Classic » of the label. To me it stays like a testimony of a moment in time. Thanks to all who supported it!

When @jeremyunderground kindly invited me for his @phonoxlondon night i was very touched to hear again his memories of him visiting during one of my A Deep Groove Radio shows on Nova 101.5FM when he was a young teenager. ___ I went through my old cassettes digging, hunting for this specific mix he had in mind, i’m not sure i found the exact one, there has been so many, between radio FG9 and Nova! But i found one recording « Urei 6 It’s Moving » that i like with this specific transition Jeremy remembers: The ‘Organ Dub’ of ‘Shazz - El Camino’ mixed with ‘Charles McDougald - That’s Life’ (that i later re-issued on my House Music label ). You can check it out on my Soundcloud (link in bio ). ___ I am looking forward to share the decks with Jeremy and play some common favorite new and older classics at Phonox on February 28th!

Today my dear friend @manu12inch (one of the best French Djs, he can mix Disco and House in such smooth way that i’m always nervous to Dj when he’s around ) gave me such a special present, a record i’ve been dreaming of since 1992! - 1992 the year @laurent_garnier invited @mauricejoshua and @georgie1porgie to dj in paris. Maurice Joshua is a legendary Chicago House producer and Dj, his classic 1988 « This Is Acid », or our beloved « The Other Side » were such Acid House hits for us as well as his collaborations with Da Posse. But in the early 90’s Maurice Joshua (and his partner Georgie Porgie ) developed a much more Soulful style with rich orchestrations, and Laurent (and myself! : ) ) were crazy about it. Would it be his releases on Id records ( Chantay Savage « I gotta hold on u »!!! ) or on Vibe Music etc… i can clearly remember back in 1992 cruising around in Paris in Laurent’s car, while Maurice and Georgie would discuss Music, and business in the back of the car. I also clearly remember going to soundcheck and Maurice pulling out of his recordbox a red vinyl with a white label on which he wrote two big letters « MW », i soon found out those letters stood for Martha Wash (the amazing singer of Two tons o’ fun, The Weather Gilrls, who worked with Prince, Sylvester, and became a House « Queen » with C&C Music factory. ) But here, Martha Washa was the singer of what was to become an Underground House anthem « Carry on » remixed by @louievega and @kdope50 @mastersatwork . - So here it is 28 years after, i finally own this test pressing! Thank you @manu12inch !!! - Those were also my @mandrax007 years! : ) i would travel to Lausane and check Stephan champion this sound out! And buy promos of the likes of Night Club records or House Jams records at Stephane’s Tracks recordstore in Lausane. I have strong memories of Laurent and Stephan playing at @madlausanne !!! - Thanks to @jeremyunderground link in bio to the mix Maurice Joshua recorded back then on Skyrock, and expect more anecdotes and memories ahead of our show with Jérémy at @phonox on February 28th!
