Many thanks to those who voted in our poll. The verdict is clear, you prefer MP3 to be used as audio format.

We would like to hear from you what audio format you prefer to download our mixes.

After some considerations, we have put our blog online which you can find here. We will randomly update it with all kind of information regarding Spirit of House and from the Chief Editor.

Blog content will not necessarily be related to music only, it will also include other stuff we would like you to know.

Happy reading Smile

Earlier this week, DanceTracks Digtial launched their all new website that makes their products more easily accessible and also brings brand new, exiting features.

Whatever our said modern world would be without the help of technology? Obviously not the point of Chicago-based Consortium Muzik label head Big Cee makin’ his official debut on IDMW’s editorial team. But rather more of how it could be without the presence of pirates or should I say hackers regularly ruining its undeniable convenience…

In the evening of April 21 (CET),Chicago-based DJ/producer Abicah Soul made a couple of bulletin postings on MySpace about a Spanish DJ doin’ illegal music sharing (including a response from the the aforementioned who denied the accusations). On April 22, Consortium Muzik posted the same news on the Southport Weekender forum which started to give the whole affair more dimension with the accused DJ PS again denying it all. The affair given further development, with the latest at one time (for a few hours at least) having links posted to archive files of unreleased Abicah Soul music on his site.

To shed light on this issue, we've contacted some of the artists, producers and labels the music of which is played by DJ PS. All of them assured me that they never sent him their music, and some of them even haven't heard of him before. This confirming both what Abicah Soul and Consortium Muzik have made public as to what DJ PS has got his hands on lot of the music he plays through shady channels to say the least. So knowing there’s no way to get unreleased music legally which is appearently not the case as far as DJ PS is concerned, the issue is obviously somewhere else.

Expect further developent soon to be given on this page by Big Cee of Consortium Muzik himself doin’ his debut as correspondant for Indamixworldwide.com... Michael Fossati (SpiritOfHouse.com)

It has just come to our attention that another website might be once again fucking the whole industry while selling music at incredibly low prices…

While being in Miami and making its way to the "Ambassador Opening BBQ" at the Rooftop of the Sony Building (Lincoln Road 605, Miami Beach), our Chief Editor Michael Fossati got stuck in the elevator. 

It turned out that the elevator had been overloaded and got stuck between the 2nd and 3rd floor. The door to the 2nd floor had to be manually opened and people had to jump out of the elevator and make their way to the roof by using the stairs (see images on the left).

As of this writing, we are not aware if the elevator has been fixed as there are more parties in this building taking place in the coming days.

The Spirit of House Mix-Archive has been updated. This site, sponsored by Neransk, now feaures all mixes from 2000 as well as all Classic Grooves mixes in MP3 quality.

You find the new site here.

Join Defected label boss and internationally renowned DJ Simon Dunmore, Shovell on percussion and Tracey K - vocalist on Fish Go Deep's club smash "The Cure and The Cause" for a night to remember.
