A very important record in dance music history. Besides being a great tune in it's own right, Dr. Love has gone on to form the backbone of house tracks like 'Your Love' by Terrence Parker, 'Doctors Housecall' by Black Traxx and 'Da Love' by Jammin Gerald just to name a few. I was a huge fan of 'Your Love' by Terrance Parker way before I knew about this track and it was a trip to hear it and understand how the sample had been used.  Now I spin the OG more than the songs that sampled it, it really holds up almost 40 years later.

First Choice


One of the most toured Soca artists and breaker of new markets for Soca music. Taking Soca as far as Sri Lanka, China, Japan, Costa Rica, Panama, the UAE to name a few.  Over the years, Rupee has amassed a number of Party Monarch and Road March titles not only in Barbados, but also at West Indian Carnivals in the United States and Canada
He has worked with artists such as Shaggy, Sean Paul, Rihanna, Khatera, Alison Hinds, Daddy Yankee, Lil' Kim and  more.



When thinking about Tony Humphries, you might be minded of his epic stint at KISS FM as one of its greatest Mastermixers; or of his residency at one of the greatest US clubs, The Zanzibar; or, even, the walls that are lined with gold discs, from Indeep to Janet Jackson; or even his legendary eclecticism. Tony is all of those things and more. But then, there’s the Tony of today, restless, questing, searching for new challenges. Which is pretty much how Tony has always been.

            What time is my artist performing

Anyone who has circulated throughout the NY/NJ underground dance community knows quite well of the contribution, dedication, and love Carolyn Byrd has for nightclub entertainment. A Paterson, NJ native, affectionately known as Byrd or Miss B., entered the scene at age 16. “I had met these kids who were club heads. They took me to this club spot. Coming from the projects, it was a different world for me. The club had a lot of psychedelic art work, etc., and I wanted to explore more.”
