PSA: In case you haven't noticed, house music has been getting hijacked by a moral crime called unoriginality. Old tunes are getting sampled or re-done over and over and over. It's one thing to use a sample as a piece of your tune but please, god almighty! Start writing your own tunes for once. Choose your samples wisely and just try to be original.
Now let's get into the music, shall we.
