Something that changed my view of music forever
About four years ago, I was watching the movie “Cellular”…a pretty decent movie, but I can honestly say that I can’t remember half of it because of what happened next. During the end credits, something happened to me that changed my view of music forever. The song “Sinnerman” (Felix Da Housecat’s Heavenly House Mix) by Nina Simone was playing and it sounded like nothing I’ve ever heard before.
Directly after, I looked the song up on the internet, and from there, started to look up more and more songs. I had NEVER been a house music fan before this. I listened primarily to rap. Rap. A genre so hopelessly watered-down with regurgitated beats and meaningless repeated lyrics.
Soon after, my iTunes was filled with nothing but house music. All kinds. Now I’m a house DJ and I don’t even listen to rap anymore. House music has taken over my playlist, and my life. So uplifting, positive and fun.
I’ll have to catch up to Felix and thank him one day.
