This is what he had to say... “When I started buying records in 1996, I lived in Portland, OR, and it was primarily breakbeat and progressive house in the stores. While I enjoyed (trying) to match beats, I wasn’t fully passionate about the music I was finding. A buddy from LA came to visit one day and had Doc Martin’s ’Unlock Your Mind’ CD. The very first song was the Cevin Fisher ‘The Way We Used To” acapella, and then DJ Sneak's “Latin Seoul” comes in. With the first bounce of those beats, I knew that was the type of music I’ve been trying to find, and the quest began.  Those specific Sneak beats I heard were literally the spark that inspired my 20 year passion for House music, which has become my full time career.  While I kept on the hunt for anything that sounded like the type of House music I heard that day (with several Sneak records in the bag), it was a co
