For those of you who don’t already know who Ron Hardy is, he is one of the most influential Chicago house DJs of the 80’s and an innovator in the mixing style of house music. His edits at times were rough, but they always captured the best of a track. Ron used his looping skills to drive the dance floor into a frenzy, his mixes can be quite psychedelic at times, especially considering the bulk of his material was disco samples, something far from psychedelia.

Forewarning, the audio quality isn’t the best but the content is as good as it gets. Enjoy!

Great sampler out on Voyeurhythm, my two favorite’s are Ben Sun’s string laden track “Just Living” and Francis Inferno Orchestra’s curious whistling tune “Father Figures.”

Here is a twisted and banged out version of the popular 90’s tune that back in the day was on repeat on the radio, “100% Pure Love.” On remixing duties is none other than OC’s Keith Craig, aka Loose Village, aka Nytel. Keith consistently shows range with his production, moving from deep tropical rhythm to deep 90’s groove and heavy hitting dance floor stompers.

Have a listen to the absolutely beautiful remix of Jay Shepheard’s “Add Arp” by Catz ‘N Dogz. An incredibly blissful saxophone track is layered over the top and the original structure left intact, I must say it is as if the original “Add Arp” was only a first draft just waiting for the finishing touches after hearing this version. This will be released as RETROFIT #8 and pressed to vinyl along with a remix by Iron Curtis on another Retrofit tune, “String Theory.” Below is a video sneak peak of the remix and a longer mp3 sneak peak.
