Personal Message: “with the music I create and perform, I always recognize the contribution of every artist, dj, producer, and the like…that have made it possible for us young producers to have a chance of making it. We must get educated about where this music comes from, and give credit where it is due. The politics must stop, let us recognize, learn, and adopt the fundamentals of house music. I believe this enable to us to really compete in and for the international market…” Dj Prosper (SA).
