Funky Mosquito Groove Dream & Dance Session Fiveteen (Rhythm Scholar Remix Tribute)

This is my tribute mix to a extremely talented DJ from the Chicagoland area who specializes in remixes.

What is groove. Difficult to explain. It has just to groove...maybe it's that kind of feeling that this music seems to be so "light" like the clouds in the sky.
These grooves takes you with in any case. You can't be on a chair without moving...without slightly moving your legs, your fingers are playing with the groove or you even sing with the melody.

Further infos and more funky mixes you can find under facebook:

Live 99 was a document of the Bassbin shows from that era. These late 90's sets were made up of staple tracks that were reduced, refined and continually being flipped. This set in particular is a snapshot of the mainstay versions as they appeared on the original CD / mixtape for your nostalgic pleasure. xx
