This soulful vocal-laden Deep House set goes out to my man RICK JOHNSON (BOILER UP!!) and my girl DAPHNE BURNETT, whom I distinctly remember meeting at Body & Soul on January 2, 2000 through KIP BRITTON. In our first conversation ever she said some amazing words that gave me the courage to expose my head scars from my car accident a month prior. She exuded what the true unity of this music and culture is about and I've never forgotten that lesson. Thank you my dear friend.
