About the Mix:
This is a little Our House winter promo mix from the archives, I think this was the first mix we actually put out, way back in winter 2008 as a couple music heads frustrated not enough DISCO was being played in Sydney.
This one is still a sentimental favorite for us, it features a few personal edits put together just for the mix & some of the NEW YORK DISCO & SOULFUL HOUSE sounds we knew definitely weren’t getting played enough in Sydney.
