“I want to say I started talking to Anthony in 2011; we had a mutual friend DJ Mary Mac in New Jersey who is also currently Madonna’s tour DJ. After he emailed me, I learned that he frequently popped into the live Vogue Knights stream I had going around that time, and he then let me know how inspired he was by the culture.
After a few weeks of talking, he sent me a track he said he had started that was specifically built off his inspiration of what he had seen. I immediately fell In love with it. He had already built most of it, but it was only a draft. Once I had the stems I pretty much broke the entire track down part for part, revamped the samples, and rebuilt the entire track with my added touch, extended and finished it. Due to his 2013 passing, he unfortunately would never get to hear the finished product. This track is his dedication to the ballroom culture and mine to him.”
