More tracks by theMHRproject
*Be sure to check out my Youtube channel as well (http://www.youtube.com/user/theMHRproject2). There are more mixes there than on SoundCloud as a lot are removed by the labels from SC.
Hey! On the Internet I go by the name of MHH (Melodic House Hub) but my friends know me as Patrick Silletta.
Chris Cox & Barry Harris were part of the remix duo known as Thunderpuss. Actively producing remixes together in the late '90's / early 2000's. They were responsible for a large number of club hits and unique sounding remixes. Their mixes encompassed a hard, tribal and very strong, synth driven sound. Thunderpuss has since disbanded and both have moved on to their own solo projects.
I have been a massive fan of this music since 1998. Hearing the insane amount of high-quality mixes during that time just blew my mind! For a good 8 years on-wards it was nothing but hit after hit, it seemed like they never stopped! But then they did around 2006 or so. I have been dismayed and saddened ever since that time. Around the summer of 2010 I started to get active on the Internet and put the truth out there about this music and the people who make it to bring it back once again.
We are in a really desperate situation as far as the music is concerned. Most of the industry is GONE! What existed around the year 2000 to support and cultivate this music has virtually been driven to oblivion. All that can be done now is self-promotion by the Programmers themselves (those who make this wonderful House Music) with a little help from dedicated fans such as myself!
theMHRproject was created to bring fans of this kind of music together to rally around the people who created this music in the first place. With the industry left as it is the only options left to bring this music back is a fan-funded model. When enough fans of this music gather together in one place we can have a funding blitz through Kickstarter or perhaps just paypal itself. The results no doubt will be amazing! If these Programmers are left to their own creativity and have a mandate from the fans to do the best they can do there is absolutely nothing that can stop them! I will continue to feature the most talented of the House music Programmers on SoundCloud and Youtube. Be sure to check out these links to get on board with the project:

Please purchase any tracks I have highlighted with a '$'. All the labels are hurting right now and need all the support they can get from the fans.
Share all the links, share the music, join the project, tell your friends and help us all build a community to support this music the way it should have been supported in 2000! None of this will be possible without your support and dedication! Also, learn who all the players were in this industry by checking out my links. Become familiar with their mixes because together we will bring them back into the fold. These Programmers are such special and talented people. Without them we wouldn't have all this wonderful music to listen and dance to!
Ultimately, the goal of theMHRproject is to create a whole new record label that will support only the most talented House music Programmers and vocalists. This kind of promotion is only the beginning. We have a lot planned so stay tuned!
