_with label director
DJ Three..(March 5, 2002)
On the label:: "HALLUCINATION LIMITED" is a dj oriented label geared towards anything I find to be exceptional regardless of specialized genre, or just straight-for-the-dj type tracks.  An outlet for one-off's, little known talent with an emphasis on Florida; and global friends with tracks that need a home or better U.S. exposure.  An excuse to get up in the morning."

_Stories From The Sanctuaries  featuring_

1. 3 Degrees_Chicago(March 9)
<click on pic to go to 3 Degree's site!
Back in 99 a celebration was forged in Chicago, a Wednesday night get together of friends, families, and house music lovers.  The basis of this idea was to provide a space where intimate lovers & friends could come together without the flashiness & trendiness that was invading the club scene.  Based on their idea that like-minded people are only separated by 3 degrees, a new phase in Chicago nightlife was born.
On the message behind 3 Degrees: "The message behind 3 degrees is that we are all connected closer than we tend to think.  We as humans need to realize this first, before we can take any positive steps forward."

2. Get On Down & Partee!
(Feb. 25)
Chuck Crider shares his moments at The Shelter(NYC.), and Body & Soul(NYC.).
"To me, very earth-based, reaching the deepest fibers of my very existence, to a place indescribable with words." by Chuck Crider

3. Hoochie Production's(Orlando, Fl.) 'Stolen Hearts' Valentines party with guest dj Jask.(Feb. 28)
