Ravin had an underground show for years out of NYC...she is for real. If you like electronic music, check out the former duo Saeed and Palash(tribal/progressive)...addictive beats, vol. 1 and 2, the tide edit, and ANY of their rips, live from Space, etc.
Here is a track that will blow your mind: "Forevermore" by Moloko. You can't really go wrong with Spanish duo Chus and Ceballos, John Creamer and Stephane K, Behrouz, Dj Vibe, or Steve Lawler, and of course, Brooklyn's own Danny Tenaglia.
An excellent remix is Sinead's "Troy" by Creamer and K, or JP's edit. Also, check out Julie McKnight("Finally", "Home", "Diamond Life")...
You may also like 'Scumfrog', Victor Calderone, Pete tha zouk, Farsheed and Bali, Dj Merrit(sp?)...and check out Jamiroquai when you are just chillin.
Stay away from Van Burin, Van Dyk, Oakenfold, and other hapless trance artisits.
And maybe Nick Warren would be good too, though he is VERY progressive, and you have to ride him out at times...
My boy is a big DJ in NY--his name is Mike Negron, with fatalmusic, in Amsterdam, and also check out anything under the 'twisted' label...these people have invented bass driven house.
And you should try Yousef...he is an english dj who used to have a residency at cream, and upstate's very own Tom Stephan, better known as 'superchumbo.'
What house you like, dmast?
