As electronic music continues to evolve and fans look toward the future, it becomes increasingly easy to forget its musical roots, which are planted firmly in a rich mixture of funky soul and percussive disco.  After collaborating with many of his musical peers over the years to produce some truly classic tracks for some of house music’s most revered labels, Mark Grant now returns to his very own DJ roots for Om Records to remind us where we came from and, at the same time, show us where we’re going.  Lushly textured in jazz tracks, uplifting vocals and soul-stirring spoken word are mixed seamlessly on three decks to create a warm disco gospel so deep, so rich and so damn good you won’t be able to keep from dancing.  Featuring tracks by : Eddie Amador, Jerome Sydenham & Kerri Chandler and A Man Called Adam.
