JOSEPH COLBOURNE :: Colbourne leans on classic dance eras, from early disco days to the heyday of deep house. Catch him serving filth and glitter during his FOXY party at Ramrod on Saturday, March 2, and bringing bears together during Group Hug at Ramrod on Saturday, March 30.

CROSSOVER HIT THAT HASN'T YET CROSSED OVER
Classixx "Holding On" "Classixx melds so many nostalgic, timeless, innovative sounds into this anthem. I hear five decades of dance music glorified in this cut. Stunning."

BEST USE OF A SAMPLE
Giom "Hot Rabbits" (Spiritchaser Remix) "Great sample, or homage, to the opening of Shannon's 'Let the Music Play.' "

BREAKOUT DEBUT
The SyntheTigers "[They] have the greatest grasp on how to edit and remix classic disco tracks with respect for the original composition. They restore faith in the belief that disco is not dead: it's eternal."
