Next installment of The Lab Sessions coming at you next week on Tunnel FM

Thursday the 8th May from 7 - 9pm G.M.T ( 8 - 10pm C.E.T )

This month you have myself David Lee and Dean Marsh .

Dean's just your average Geordie bloke who loves his music . His love for all things house started way back at the age of 13... listening to Wear FM (local North East radio station here in the UK) where he listened to everything from Chicago House to Drum n Bass/Jungle and all things in between.

Buying dodgy mixtapes by Sasha, Colin Dale, Carl Cox etc, buying tunes at the legendary Trax Record shop in Newcastle and learning to mix on his shitty Citronic Belt drives, joining like minded friends on unforgettable nights out... going to the mighty Shindig (THE best club ever) at 16 and still do to this very day!

This is how he fell in love with House in all it's many forms, and what has shaped his sound and style.

So i hope this gives you a clue to what to expect from his mixes

Enjoy :)

You can check out Dean's other mixes over at Soundcloud and Mixcloud .

Very sad day today in the House world , The Godfather of House , Frankie Knuckles has died aged 59.

Knuckles was born in the Bronx in 1955, and became a disco DJ in the early 1970s, spinning with childhood friend and garage pioneer Larry Levan at the Continental Baths. In 1977, the Warehouse nightclub opened in Chicago, and Knuckles moved to the city to become its premier DJ. As legend has it, the music Knuckles would spin at "The Warehouse" became extremely popular among his regular clubgoers, who would then go to record stores to request "house" music—music spun at "The Warehouse."

What Knuckles would spin evolved into its own genre, as producers used drum machines to produce less expensive version of popular dance styles. Knuckles would also begin to do his own edits, remaking disco tracks to make them work better for his dance floor.

The Warehouse became the crucible of a genre that would conquer the world and can still be heard on radio stations to this day.

In 1983, Knuckles moved from The Warehouse to his own club, the Power Plant.
Knuckles also became a producer, recording iconic versions of Jamie Principle's "Your Love," "Baby Wants To Ride," and "Cold World." Other singles included 1991's elegaic teardrop anthem "The Whistle Song"

There is no doubt his music and everything he has done will live on , a True Legend .
