O&A, the legendary combination of Louis Osbourne and Jamie Anderson, have been riding steady under the riptide of house music, maintaining the stream of pure, danceable tunes that act as precise club weapons across the globe. I’d expect nothing less of a duo where each of them have lived and breathed music from birth. Their tracks on home label Play It Down are almost confoundingly simply and thusly extremely effective. In cooking, adding fat is said to add flavor, and in the case of O&A it is the same. Fat tracks with a Chicago influence are the bread and butter of house, able to be mixed and added and interpreted by DJs and fans alike.

I’ve managed to catch the fine gentlemen just before the holidays, and since all three of us were feeling generous (tis the season) we’ve managed to package up a lovely little exclusive interview and 70 minute mixtape for your pre-Christmas pleasure. So while you’re on a plane, train, or car to head home for the holidays, press play and bump this away to your heart’s content.

It’s that time of the year, and the magical collaboration between opposite ends of the GDD spectrum join forces once again to create a special hour of magical vibes and seasonal grooves – perfect for traveling, lounging, love-making, acting out or giving in, starting the evening or winding it down. However you spend the holiday this year, let this mix set the ambiance to your festivities. Enjoy.

Everyone have a good holiday? Hopefully all you guys and gals got everything your little hearts desired, including some spending cash for the new GDD™ apparel! Anyway, before everyone takes off again next weekend for New Year’s Eve, we’ll be having a quaint little holiday event at The Central in Santa Monica.  Friends from Danceism and Newestra.com will be taking care of the tunes in the front room and who knows, maybe we’ll even bring some new GDD™ merch to gift away if we’re in the giving spirit.

RSVP at DANCEiSM.com for free entry!

Also, mark your calendars because next Thursday, January 5th is our VERSUS 1 Year Anniversary event, and we have some HUGE special guests that you DO NOT want to miss.

For a little holiday gift, I’ve provided you with a few mixes from the R_Co Soundcloud. All available for download.
