Year of the Rat – Deep House Music – Jan. 2009

Happy New Year!

I hope you all had a safe and enjoyable NYE. I spent the evening with a small group of friends at Kelly’s Mission Rock in San Francisco. We had the privilege of watching D:FUSE work his magic until the wee hours of the morning. If you haven’t seen him live, I highly recommend it. He’s an amazing performer and never fails to turn it out.

Well, it’s a new year so I thought I’d start things off with a spiritual rant to go along with my latest deep house mix. For those of you who don’t know 2007 marked the end of the Zodiac calendar’s 12 year cycle. What does this mean you ask? How does this relate to Midnight Soul or anything else for that matter? Well, I was born in 1972, so according to Chinese astrology, 2008 is my year! It’s the beginning of a new 12 year cycle… a time for change, new opportunities, and challenges. I don’t hold much stock in astrology but I am looking forward to making 2008 the best year ever!

And with that I give you an uplifting deep house set called ‘Year of the Rat’.
