Stereo's stuff is awesome...you just have to love the Iberican sound! I play so many of their records all the time...and I just love the stuff that Colors, DeLoren, Legaz and of cos Chus and Ceballos dish out. This party is going to be wicked....thanks for setting it up guys!!!
This is going to be a sick party! De Loren & Colors are amazing! Quality smooth, tribal, iberican house! Stereo is one of the best labels out there in my opinion. My last 6 or 7 records are from the Stereo label. 'Remember the Past' was partly produced by Colors, and is my most favorite track from 2003! Sleepyface & DJ Boo are my favorite local DJs, and their track selections are oustanding! This is definitely going to be an amazing party! I'll see ya there!
