introduces: "Johnny Fiasco – “Cycles – a mixed retrospective”: from the essential Chicago DJ/producer comes the first look at his career so far, demonstrating why the Fiasco sound is always in demand on the dance floor. This CD will be dropping on March 26th in Canada, April 16th in the U.S. and Japan, and May 14th in Europe. Johnny will be touring, of course, co-promoted by Coast 2 Coast. Listen to Fiasco’s “Sunrise”: About a month later, Bombay’s in-house superstar Miguel Graça unleashes his new album, “Monkey Mass.” Deep house meets electro-chill – this album is really different from his first album “Shining Stars,” and flat-out brilliant. Miguel’s tour will also be promoted by Point Blank Network – he’s a wicked DJ that will blow minds. On the vinyl tip, Chris Brann’s “So in Love” EP has just hit stores and has been charted in UK press like DJ Magazine and by legends like Larry Heard. Don’t sleep on this deeeeeep classic. Soon to come – Miguel Graça’s “Monkey Mass” EP, Fred Everything’s “From the Deep” LP, and new bombs from Roy Davis Jr.!!! Speaking of Roy, if you live in the U.S. get ready for his mix CD "Roy Davis World Tour: Live on 4 decks" out on his own label, Undaground-Therapy. If you don’t live in the U.S…email firstname.lastname@example.org for more information. Much respect to RD…If you ever need more information about Bombay artists, or you want to hire one for a remix or a gig, email email@example.com and I’ll be in touch."
