It's been a while Fellow House Fiends, hope everyone is enjoying family & friends, life and working hard achieving your goals. It's increasingly more difficult to put aside time for this love of ours called House Music.

Focused energy with no mind drifts- letting everything come through our fingertips and THUMP through the speakers!

With Christmas just around the corner, hope you crank this mix LOUD while you are driving to & from a great get together with your loved ones.

Merry Christmas and God Bless you and may He open your eyes to the important things in life. Cheers, dattrax (Jim & Dat, fellow house fiends)

HOUSEFLICTION (Strictly House Music)

Afflicted with the house bug? Don't worry, we know how you feel. Been addicted to house music since were were 16yrs old.

This is the best time for house music we've ever seen. It's wonderful to be excited every week about new house tracks you've never heard at your favourite mp3 stores. House DJ/ Producer friends on facebook and twitter sharing their mixes, their youtube video picks of cool house related stuff- it's endless!! Parties with different types of house music all over the city, tons of up & comers and tons of great international House DJs visiting Toronto.

Yes, there's too much house now, too many mixes, too many sub-genres and too many related electronic music- COMPLETE SYSTEM OVERLOAD!!

But, hey... gone are the days where you are begging for a mixed house cassette tape by a popular dj and having the pickings be slim. Gone are the days of going to your favourite record stores each week, buying the same records as 30-50 other djs and everyone playing the same records. The selection was scarce compared to now. Gone are the days of paying $16.99 for a 4 track EP- where you only bought it for the one goosebump track.

Now there's so much music out there that you can actually not sound like everyone else. You can listen to thousands of house tunes and the chances (at the sheer volume of what's coming out) of you sounding like someone else are small.

And the best part? It's dirt cheap, after getting a 15-20% online discount coupon you end up paying $50-60 bucks for 30 traxs- what a thrill!!

It's so good to be constantly re-excited (if there is such a word ; ) or re-energized about house. It's a ritual with Jim and I. Putting a few tracks every few days into our virtual bins or spending a weekend going crazy hunting for tracks that make us want to dance. Then listening to them together in a long car ride- finishing with some late night food in Chinatown or Greektown in downtown Toronto.

Then it goes into iphone or ipod and listened to in pockets of time, more car rides, getting on the treadmill, then making a mix.

Then another car ride together seeing if it makes us both happy- we've always DJ for ourselves and if some people like it along the way, then that's the cherry on top.

Back to the house ritual... then going through the frustration of redoing the mix over and over again because it just wasn't fun enough, wasn't good enough or wasn't timeless enough. You just don't want to throw something together. If it's not special to you, it won't be to someone else.

We want to make mixes where people would hopefully enjoy it enough to actually want to listen to it a 2nd time and if they listen anymore, then it's Christmas! In this day and age of having too much available and nothing getting any real attention- attention is a precious commodity. We don't value what is easily attained.

Rather have a few hundred people that really love our brand of house music, then to have thousands of people who don't care and can't tell the difference. Worst to be background filler house.

Usually make anywhere between 4-8 mixes from a selection of 60-90 tracks within a month or two (between the cracks of time sandwiched by work and family)- then the mix that moves us the most gets posted. That's the whole process in a nutshell.

Thank you so much for taking your time to visit us here and for listening to our mixes. We are so excited to share with you the tracks that move us each month.

All the best to you and all your endeavours- be the best you can be and stay passionate!! Cheers, dattrax

Decided on a mock interview format to share our thoughts on some House DJ related topics we've seen online lately, PART1...

We hope that you enjoy this mix also. Cheers, dattrax

WHAT IS WITH ALL THIS HOOPLA ONLINE ABOUT DJS WHO USE SYNC BUTTONS TO MATCH BEATS?

Sync or no-sync, at the end of the day it's about rocking crowds, making great memories and experiences, so it doesn't matter. If you have fans, then someone likes what you do, then that's what we're all after isn't it?

Having said this, there are a few things we'd like to share:

Some big DJs like DeadMau5, David Guetta and Steve Angelo, etc. who use premixed mixes for live shows are like modern day rock stars with legions of fans paying lots of money to listen to their pre-programmed sets, so it seems that this is what their fans want, their form of 'live' entertainment. Doesn't seem that their fans care if it's really live or not.

Nothing wrong with that. Loud music blasting in your ears while you dance your stress & worries away is what it's always been about.

Don't really have a beef with pre-programed sets or synced mixing, but our beef is with pretending to DJ and then denying that they are syncing, etc (recent example is the online scuffle between DJ Sneak and Steve Angelo about 'fake djing'- remember the Milli Vanilli lip syncing scandal in '80s? Same deal).

Angelo apparently denies this, even after images and youtube vids of him at live events circulate all over Facebook that prove otherwise. Angelo has a massive following that love his tunes, so what's the big deal Stevie? Just say you do and so what if you do, but don't say that you play live when you clearly don't.

Syncing is important for DJs like Richie Hawtin. Hawtin is a pioneer, a scientist and master show man- working a laser light show, always mixing four tracks at the same time, doing 1/2 a dozen effects at any one time. In his case, beat matching has to take a backseat so he can create and inspire.

That's different. If you just mix two records together (like we do), then why do that?

The fun for us has always been in the mixing! The ups and downs of trying different track combos, different house genre combos, playing tracks at different speeds or EQ settings that we enjoy rather than what they were created at, using line levels and cross faders to change the tension between during mixes, mixing out properly to not change the tempo in an undesired way, seeing how what we do fail or succeed in getting a shared reaction of joy from a fellow House Fiend.

We grew up with great Toronto DJs, like Aki. who was mixing beautiful house journeys in smoky, dark & packed warehouse parties before dj mixers had single channel EQs or effects buttons (the internet, mp3's, Facebook or cell phones). Listen for yourself- just house music and mixing. This mix was on cassette tape (google it!) made in 1996 by Aki with two twelves and a old school mixer:
http://torontohousedjs.podomatic.com/entry/2011-03-03T10_38_24-08_00

We forked out good money each week to go crazy to amazing talents like Jason Palma, PTS (Peter, Tyrone & Shams), Dave Campbell, Kevin Williams and Dino & Terry- these guys made you danced till the sun rose.

We saw out of town talents like Roger Sanchez, Derrick Carter, Doc Martin, Cevin Fisher, DJ Sneak and Little Louie Vega blow our minds with 2 or 3 vinyl turntables- all these guys made us grow more in love with house music each time we partied to their brand of house! The art and wonder of it all. Learning what we liked or didn't like about the mixing or music programming. Always learning and having fun along the way.

We also take issue with some DJs saying that beat matching is so easy and take no time to learn to justify their syncing. We just have one question:
"If it's so easy, then why are you using the sync??!!"

If you want to sync, then do it, it's your art form and the way you want to express yourself. Just don't pretend that you do it because it's not worth your creative focus & energies, or that you don't when you in fact do. Life is simple but some people choose to make it difficult.

Again we are in a position where there is SO MUCH GREAT HOUSE MUSIC COMING out each week, and so little time making good mixes.

Jim and I (for those who don't know we DJ together as 'dattrax' and have been best friends for ages) have bought a few more batches since we bought the music on this mix a few months ago. So we have enough new music (well... new to us since we didn't hear these tracks before) for three more mixes after this one.

Have soooooo many mixes in mind to make and so little time...

What's a good mix? That's too subjective since everyone's definition of everything is different these days on many topics, but for us, a good mix is one where a listener is not bored after the first run through. And if they scan, the tracks are so good that they want to have a full listen afterwards.(There are so many free DJ house mixes online now that people don't even listen to the mixes, they just scan through them.)

It's where they enjoy playing the mix over and over and keep finding new parts that they like in it- that's a good mix! (sidenote: a mix is completely different than a live set, but more on this another day)

I always refer back to the days when I would get a mix tape from one of my favourite local house djs (only a handful back then, but 100's now in Toronto). I'd get a tape and if it was ok or suck, then it would get shelved or put in the trash. If it was good, then it was listened to 30 or more times and practically wore out the tape!

Now we're realistic, knowing that in today's internet age- a house mix or house track will never get the attention like mixes/tracks back then, but we'd be happy if people played a few times and remember the names of the dattrax mixes that they enjoyed.

Nothing like hearing someone freaking out and saying "I loved... (name of dattrax mix because..."). That's reciprocal love happening there. The positive feeling from house music is universal and is an instant connector.

Forget 'back in the day' (even though I mentioned it a few times winking! This is the BEST TIME for house music! The volume of music being made, and the quality to be found in sifting through that volume. So blessed.

If you have an insatiable appetite for stress relieving, soul lifting, foot stomping, head bopping, fists in the air, goosebump ridden house music, then go to beatport or traxsource and drown yourself for 5hours and get an ear to ear grin.

Let the summer begin with this mix as we begin July2012!!

Hello Fellow HOUSE FIENDS!!

Can't believe it's been over a month since we had a chance to post a new house mix... where does the time go? With work and family there's hardly enough time for house... it's a crime.

Jim, my DJ Partner and I are beat junkies and are constantly hunting for new tracks. Not "new" tracks meaning that they have to be current, just new to us. That's the great thing about house, the music is timeless and because it is so powerful when you hear it you, you instantly associate it with a fond memory. Constantly need an influx of 30-40tracks each month to keep us excited.

Once in a while we find a house producer that just blows our minds (even though almost every track we buy blows our minds), so then we go raid their entire catalogue of tracks on one of our fav mp3 stores, and find a half dozen or more gems.

Last producer I remember that we bought that many at one time was Sta Shiprinski. There are many house beat makers but the tracks that resonate are made with a house groove. You can't put a finger on it because it's different every time, but WOW... does it impact you. Especially after a long day of stressful work- CRANK it up!

Anyways, we are so excited to find Nick Curly. Think this mix is almost a Nick Curly tribute because I think 6-8 of his tracks are on here out of the 30 or so. (That reminds me, I want to do a Phonique tribute some time in the future.)

Curly's "Piano in the Dark" is the most beautiful house vocal track we've heard in 2012 so far. Every part of it! Hands in the air and close your eyes! The way house makes you feel every time.

All the other tracks in this mix are killer too. Too many great house producers to really name. This is the BEST time for house music because there is soooooo much of it out there.

Special Thanks to VINCE VEGA of INPUT RECORDINGS & WBI MUSIC for giving many fans on Facebook his beautiful bootleg remix of GOTYE, "Somebody That I Used To Know". Vince's bootleg of SADE's "HAUNT ME" is still one of my favourite vinyl records.

Vince and many house producers in Toronto are emerging with their own unique vision of house and showing people that the hardcore house fanatics live in and love Toronto!!

Thanks Justin Shaw aka, NOBLE for this image.

All the best everyone and please comment if you are feeling these mixes! Cheers, dattrax

dattrax: Happy Easter Everyone and just wanted to share a little of the spring sunshine with you in a form of a new HOUSE MIX! May God Bless you all and your loved ones. And if you don't feel blessed right now, then know that without a doubt that He DOES LOVE YOU and hopefully you'll realise that someday.

This week, thinking about getting a new car stereo deck was dancing in my mind. The one I bought a few years back doesn't play CDs anymore, but fortunately has an auxiliary plug to put my ipod or iphone into. I've been looking in the weekly electronic store flyers for months now, just eyeballing all the car decks- salivating. Dreaming of a cd player that works, the USB port to stick a USB stick full of house music into. The urge to drive to the electronics store and scoop one up was so strong, but know that it would be at least $220 when you include taxes and installation. Then the thought about how many mp3, 320bit house tracks I could buy for that money POPPED into my head, so I decided to live with my crappy car stereo (for now).

This internal tug of war brought back a flood of memories to a time when my DJ Partner Jim and I were vinyl junkies to the extreme. We called it being addicted to "The Black Crack" (after the black colour of vinyl for those of you to never have seen vinyl before : ) There was a point where we were so addicted to buying house records, that when I saw something for let's say $35, I'd think to myself: 'but if I don't buy this, then I can buy TWO RECORDS!!'

This sounds silly, but seems to be a man's version of frugality- choosing to not spend in one area in favour of another, but not saving any money. There are people who probably think, 'Hey, why do you guys still love house music so much?' You know, some guys dig sports or collecting something... that's just another money and time sucking hobby. We've chosen HOUSE as a hobby and are cool with that. The big difference is that this love can be shared with so many people and transfer those positive feelings.

There is so much pleasure in the process for us, almost a monthly ritual... of hunting for tracks. Listening to them for a week or two, mixing them, listening, mixing them again, listening, then again, then sharing them and hoping that someone else likes the mix also.

GOING BACK to the topic of being addicted to house back then. We went to endless number of parties, have over 400 mixed tapes & cds made by other house djs. We bought over 6000 vinyl records over the years and we stopped buying vinyl and switched to buying MP3's over 10yrs ago. And now have over 2000 house MP3 tracks. Burned through tape decks, needles (for turntables for the youth out there : ), mixers, 100s of cases of blank cassette tapes and over 8000 blank cds, whatever it was we needed- you name it. Compare to sports (if we were into sports), we would be the guys- shirtless and with full body paint jumping up and down like drunken idiots in the stand holding up crazy signs & stuff, buying sports related stuff, going to sports events, hanging out with other sports addicts, watching sports all the time and playing in men's leaugues 2-3x's per wk. We are the ultimate FANS!

I tried to quit 'The Black Crack' three times and once for about 3years till I heard a DJ mix of new house that blew my mind. Now I know that we are here to stay. Just spent over 5hrs this week cruising over 1500traxs and hunting down 41 new tracks in www.Traxsource.com - excited about sharing the next mix with you!!

dattrax: WOW!!! Two months since the last mix was uploaded.

In an ideal world I'd love to pump out a mix a week, and much respect to the DJs that regularly pump out house mixes. Lots of discipline and love displayed there. Thank you to all the HOUSE DJS out there for sharing with people your hard work finding the gems, and piecing together something that can be enjoyed with multiple listens and shared with like-minded friends.

Please check out our Toronto, Ontario, Canada Facebook group called "TORONTO HOUSE DJ MIXES"- the name pretty much says it all. Basically, only HOUSE MIXES made by TORONTO DJs are posted in this group. No spam, no filler- Strictly HOUSE!! (here's the link- you don't have to join to listen, share or download so pls help spread the word: http://www.budurl.com/TORONTOHOUSEDJMIXES ).

Right now the group is just over a year old and has 136 Toronto House DJs and over 630 house mixes. With that much choice no one can ever complain that they can't find what they love! We want to build the largest online collection of Toronto house mixes.

The idea came to me last Jan-2011 when I was reminiscing about when I first got into house music and it was difficult to get even ONE mix cassette tape from a good house DJ. And when you got one, well... you played it so much it would almost come apart.

Now with the internet- there's too much choice and it's so easy to share one's vision of house music with others. So I wanted to enjoy, learn and be inspired by my fellow Brothers and Sisters in HOUSE in our beloved city of Toronto.

IT'S NEVER BEEN THIS GOOD FOR HOUSE MUSIC!!

Toronto is a city brimming with underground house music fiends for over 20yrs because of so many great DJs paving the way and making people fall in love with this music, DJs that have influenced my DJ partner and best friend, Jim and I through many many great memories and tons of record hunting... back to influences: Kevin Williams, Mark & Aki, Peter, Tyrone & Shams (PTS), Dave Campbell, Jason Palma, Dino & Terry, Noel Nanton, Nick Holder, Patrick "D-Nice", Eric Ling and many more. More recently Jason B., Gene King & Jason Hodges.

Some of our Outside-of-Toronto house dj or producer influences have been (that first come to mind): Little Louie Vega and Kenny "Dope" Gonzalez (MAW), Derrick Carter, Wally Calleiro, Phonique, Luke Solomon and Justin Harris (MFF), Roger Sanchez, John Tejada, Alland Byallo, Stas Shiprinksi, Lee Kalts, Soul Clap, Greenskeepers, Said Chaara, Matthew Dear, Chuck Love, Chuck Daniel, DJ Sneak, Cevin Fisher, Rob Mello, Dub Taylor, Steve Lawler, Danny Tenaglia, Doc Martin, Frankie Knuckles, Fingers Inc., etc., etc., etc. and then some...

With every track bought, every mix made, and every gig played we pay tribute to all the house producers and house DJs that have impacted us over the years and to all the house promoters that gave us all those magical nights and even the not so great nights to learn what we didn't like. We are very grateful of all these experiences and all the wonderful people we've met over the years. Afterall, are we not the sum total of all we've every experienced and the result of every day to day decision?
