The fourth release by the Chilean label comes with a remix by Atlanta’s original Kai Alce. He takes a functional minimal house release and sprinkles his Moodymann/Theo-esque funk over the top for a laidback jazzy paino-prodded percussive groover!

Has been producing late night tracks and tapping into the essence of deepness since the ’90’s. Known for their universal appeal and appearing on over 20 different labels worldwide, soulful, timeless grooves are his signature. Growing up in Buchanan MI, 1 hour outside of Chicago he was influenced by Chicago radio station WBMX and the Salsoul material and local stations that played the likes of Al Green and Isaac Hayes. Rick remembers:
“I’ve always been into the music first. I loved the way they (WBMX) would blend two songs together and make it sound like one. I didn’t even know what a DJ was back then. I just wanted to blend songs together…When I went to the record store those songs were only available on 12″ vinyl, then I needed turntables to play them and then I needed a mixer if I wanted to blend them… At parties I had the records and I had the turntables so I became the DJ almost by default.”
While attending the University of Michigan, Wade had the first house mix show on the college station WCBN called ‘Journey to the Land of House’. Other presenters were impressed with his material and mixing skills and soon asked him to prepare mixes for their own shows. Some time around 1991 Rick was working on a mix for Brendan Gillen’s ‘Crush Collision’ show and ran out of tracks that he wanted to include. Having always a love for and producing hip-hop Wade turned to his studio to create a track that would fit the mix perfectly and hasn’t looked back since. In 1993 Rick and Dan Bell started Harmonie Park to release house material and in 1995 Rick started another label Bass Force primarily as an outlet for the Booty / Bass material that he records under the ‘Big Daddy Rick’ moniker.
Today, Rick Wade enjoys a reputation as one of the premier House mixshow producers in the world and anyone who likes deep, funky vibes should definitely find a chance to see him play live. Every Rick Wade set is fresh and spontaneous. Drawing its energy directly from the unique vibe of each party, Rick exposes the deepness to the crowd, taking the vibe to an emotional peak where it merges with the body, mind, and spirit into a continuous musical orgasm that lasts long after his set is over.
Reggie Dokes has been considered by some of his fans as one of detroit’s most underrated and overlooked producers/ Djs in electronic music (house / techno). However ,this hat not stopped him from contributing music that is undefinable, ecletic, spiritual and soulful.
Reggie has always been about the music, never searching for the spotlight. His contributions to music have been out of love for house and techno, which he was nurtured on since the age of 14 in Detroit. House records coming from Chicago, New York and specially Europe, ultimately influenced him to become a Dj and eventually a producer. Under the mentoring eye of Mr. Derrick May the “Innovator” of Detroit Techno, his friendship with him became the launching ground and inspiration for reggie Dokes’ professional Djing career, exposing him to some of the best dance floors in North America and Europe.
In 2001 he decided to start his own label called 2Psychostasia Records” which has released several twelve inch records and three full lenght albums to date. In addition, he has managed to release with other independent labels based on North America: Women On Wax (Dj Minx), Forward Thought (Louis Haiman), Transmat (Derrick May), Sound Signature (Theo Parrish). Also some european based labels :Third Ear Records (UK), Deep Explorer (Spain), Prime Numbers (UK), Rhythmic Deep (UK), Philpot Records (Germany), We Play House (Belgium); Clone Records (Netherlands), Cismo Music (Japan). Lastly, a 12 inch release on Offering Recordings, (Central Republic Africa/ Belgium) featuring a remix by rising star Dj/producer: Culoe De Song, which has created a huge buzz on the dancefloors of South Africa. His new fan base in South Africa, has allowed him to tap one of many: Mandla Mindlo.
