In our latest interview, coming out very soon in Issue 026, Eddie talks about his ‘HOUSE MUSIC’ Track from 1998:
” It was my first production. I wrote it from a place of frustration. At that time House Music was not that “big” in Los Angeles, due to the promoters pushing the sound of Trance and/or Hip Hop “
