strictly for the househeads

Attention househeads. Go directly to the Strictly Rhythm website and join their mailing list. Once you join, you'll get exclusive access to their DJ mixes which currently include heavy hitters like Todd Terry, Osunlade, Quentin Harris, and 'Little' Louis Vega among others. Not a bad deal for a free membership! Thank me later. You can also purchase much if not all of the Strictly Rhythm back catalog (in digital download format or on vinyl(!!!)), as well as other merchandise. Strictly Rhythm if you were sleeping through the 1990's is the legendary power"house" and arguably the most important and most influential house music label in the U.S. if not the world. If anyone's interested in shopping for an early graduation/birthday gift for me (I mean, c'mon, May is really not that far away!) the grey t-shirt in the merchandise section would be the perfect gift idea. I'd probably never take it off.

Anyhow, you can't go wrong with a label boasting tracks from house heavy hitters such as Masters at Work, Roy Davis, Jr., Kings of Tomorrow, Maurice Joshua, George Morel, Armand Van Helden, Mood 2 Swing, Osunlade, DJ Sneak, DJ Pierre, Barbara Tucker, Crystal Waters, King Britt, Josh Wink, Roger Sanchez, Joey Negro, David Morales, and Todd Terry to name a few.
