Local Jocks Spark A Return to the Roots of Underground Dance Music Culture in Dallas.

Ricky Simpson, Gavin Guthrie aka TX Connect and Mr. Daishiki Jones 
BENDING and breaking, re-conceptualizing, remolding   and rebuilding upon pre-conceived notion of how underground dance music  is defined,  while staying true and focused to the universal  ethos of dance floor harmony since 2010, we are continuing our journey in 2016, dedicated to preserving the culture with our special blend of House, Techno and Disco.

"Back in 2009, as the new year was fast approaching, I was wondering about what was going on on New Year's Eve and I was shocked that there were zero — yes, zero — house or techno-themed events planned for Dallas..."
- Mr Daishiki Jones  

Holding court every 3rd Saturday, at our current home at The Crown & Harp in Dallas for the past year,  we've  slowly but surely,  creating a organic and holistic environment for the music and culture unique to Dallas and the metroplex - there's nothing quite like it in the entire state of Texas.

Our current roster are avid collectors, talented producer, promoters, deejays  who are extremely passionate about preserving  the music and culture along with  it's  history by  building upon it's legacy - always moving forward, while acknowledging the importance of the traditions which were the blueprints and foundation for the culture.

Both Ricky Simpson and Mr. Daishiki Jones have been a  integral part of helping to shape the local underground dance music landscape for the past 20+ years and  newest member, Gavin Guthrie is Dallas' "wunderkind" who is taking the world by storm with his highly regarded releases on acclaimed labels such as L.I.E.S. and Creme Organization and his new label, T.R.U.(Texas Recordings Underground), under his guise as TX Connect.

For your listening enjoyment, here are mixes and interviews in the DALLAS OBSERVER featuring our resident manipulators of the groove.

  1. They have a few large flat screens in the hall but not too many to make this a sports bar. It's all about the beer at event halls for rent. Long lines of taps are behind each bar sporting an impressive array of craft libations.
