Lush was a late-night party in Atlanta, GA many years ago that started at 3am on Saturday night/Sunday morning. It was always jam-packed with house music lovers until at least 6am. I had the honor of playing for them twice, and this set was recorded live at my second appearance. Since the place was small and the dj booth was right on the dancefloor, you can hear people (and me) screaming through the needles, which I love.
This was also the night I met fellow deephouse.com dj Kevin O. He had a live singer performing with him during his set right before mine, so at the beginning of the mix, as we were swapping out connections, you can hear the crowd through her mic, and her unplanned saying “yeah!” right before I started my first record was serendipitous to say the least and really sets this mix apart.
The only bummer was the sound system was rigged for mono so the recording is in mono, not stereo. However, I was so happy with it, I decided to release it anyway. To this day, it’s one of my favorite sets.
