Amsterdam Dance Event

Autumn is a time of transition as the sweltering heat of summer tappers off, giving way to cooler days, longer nights, and for those of us blessed to be close enough to the land, a period of natural bounty. Alas, this past month has been quite magnanimous for Nightdrive and her fans.

Motor City Drum Ensemble

This is probably the sexiest track I’ve heard in a while.  I don’t throw that term around that often; every time I hear someone refer to a genre called “sexy house,” I cringe at the cheesiness.  But this is different.  Motor City Drum Ensemble‘s new DJ-Kicks L.O.V.E.
