The Narcoleptic started spinning in the suburbs of Chicago, but it wasn't until he started his residency at Smart Bar's Tuesday night party, Pump, with fellow residents Derrick Carter, Miles Maeda and Terry Martin, did music really start to unfold for him. His career has been a slow and steady build with releases on labels such as Classic Music, Jump Recordings and Loveslap, a perfect fit for his style of quality over quantity. His track, "Robots Like Zombies" is a similar build - mysterious and subtle at the start of the track and building into a groove that is unforgettable.
Jump Recordings head honcho, Arturo Garces was born and raised in San Jose, California, and has been surrounded by dance music his entire life. Interested in making his own music, Arturo got hold of a sampler in 1995 and hasn't looked back since. He has releases on both established and strictly underground labels such as Robsoul Recordings, Cross Section, Magnetic, Oomph, Smoke City Music, Subliminal Soul, Jump Recordings, Solid Trax and Sneak Classics. His approach for his remix of "Robots Like Zombies" blends the driving, beat-laden beauty of techno with the soulful, deep melodies of House. This is the same timeless sound that has helped define the unique Silicon Valley/Bay Area sound.
David Harness has been described as a man who lives, breathes and emanates everything that is beautiful about Deep House music and Classic Garage. He began DJing in his hometown of Monterey, California in 1990. As his popularity grew, he was invited to establish a residency at Tilt and the Sound Factory in San Francisco. His success as a club DJ led to a spot on the popular radio show, "Your Mama's House" on the Bay Area's number one radio station, KMEL FM, and in 1996, he started DJing at The End Up's Sunday T-Dance, and the rest is pure House history. In 2000, David started his own production work, which has led him to work with artists such as Mary J. Blige, Simply Red, Alicia Keys and establish a relationship with fellow producer, Chris Lum, resulting in the birth of their label, Harlum Musiq. His remix and the Bonus Beats for "Robots Like Zombies" find a tech-y, syncopated beat and bassline rhythm which really highlight the remixes. The melody accompanies the bassline giving the track a fierce commanding harmony.
