GREETING AND BLESSINGS IN YOUR NEW YEAR
THIS WEEK WE GO TO THE UK IN SEARCH OF THE SOULFUL.
LADIES & GENTLEMAN.
PLEASE WELCOME..... DJ RUSSELL RUCKMAN
Russell’s first DJ experiences started at the very young age of 10 playing classic house, soul and hip hop at youth club disco’s, getting up in front of a crowd at such a young age fueled Russell’s confidence for what he was dreaming about pursuing as a career. Moving on in 1993 Russell was fortunate enough to land himself with a Saturday job as a studio manager answering the phone’s for the legendary Freedom FM, Brighton’s first legal dance station, this is where Russell really began to gain some good experience about the industry and meet other like minded people.
In 1995 Russell worked for DFM 101.4, this time his role was a lot more involved, he did everything from help build the studio to engineer outside broadcasts and he was also lucky enough to have his own show giving him the exposure he needed to begin his quest as a DJ. At DFM Russell was working alongside the like’s of Marshall Jefferson, Dave Clark, Rob Blake, Norman Cook & The Ragga Twins to name but a few, from here on Russell began to secure gig’s playing at various venues around Brighton & Hove.
Growing up as a teenager in the early nineties Russell was heavily influenced musically by the likes of Bobby & Steve, Tony Humphries, Joey Negro and his biggest inspiration Paul Trouble Anderson. In July 2007 Russell located himself in Bournemouth for just over a year where he was working on a number of different projects including promoting Get Spinny & Ultra Phunk Delite he was also playing at Havana’s, One Seven Six & The Bazaar Bar, during this time he also made trips to London to play for Bar 54 and heygorgeous. While in Bournemouth Russell was taken on board as a resident DJ and co promoter for one of the south coast biggest soulful house brands God Made Me Funky.
In August 2007 Russell & God Made Me Funky headman Paul Horne aka De Hornet presented a weekly Saturday morning radio show on local station Deep Blue FM. Following on from the success of the radio show Russell collaborated once again with God Made Me Funky this time promoting a boat party followed by an all night after party in Bournemouth where Russell had the pleasure in booking The Legendary Paul Trouble Anderson & Sy Sez of the Fanatix and the Aphrodisiax.
Not only is Russell a remarkably talented DJ with an exquisite taste in house music but he has also proved himself to be a successful promoter too. Russell is really beginning to make movements in the world of soulful house and has quite a following in Brighton, London and Bournemouth as well as becoming known for his popular mixes, podcasts and radio shows in other parts of the world. Russell has an extensive knowledge and a massive passion & confidence for the music he plays and with his unique blend of uplifting soulful house he always creates a great atmosphere and has everyone up on the floor.

PEACE HOUSE FAMILY
WITH THE INAUGURATION COMING SOON,WE WANTED TO FIND AN ARTIST WHO HAS MUSICALLY PUT IT IN PERSPECTIVE. FROM SYDNEY AUSTRALIA WE PRESENT..
DJ PHIL TOKE AND THE OHM (OUR HOUSE MOVEMENT)
Phil Toke is a Sydney-based DJ and founder of Our House, a regular night dedicated to deep soulful house and classic disco.
The launch of Our House has marked a new chapter in Sydney’s dance music experience, providing lovers of house and disco with a uniquely intimate setting to kick back and relax or get down and dirty with some of Sydney's most talented dj's and musicians. Raising the roof with every party, Our House provides Sydney with a much needed outlet to enjoy quality tunes…and is turning quite a few heads while it’s at it.
Phil’s eclectic musical style encompasses everything from soulful house and deep house to disco, soul, and funk. His broad musical scope and technical skills don’t cloud his philosophy to his work though – he keeps that simple. To keep the quality music flowing, to play with passion and to always keep it real.
Having kicked off his career in 2000 by winning the annual Macquarie University DJ competition and qualifying for the State finals, Phil has racked up a countless number of sets across Sydney at venues such as Favela, Trademark, Home, Goodbar, Arthouse, Civic Hotel, The Burdekin and Candy’s Apartment. He is also a guest DJ for Sydney's most respected house crew, Soulful House Experience (SHE). In the past two years alone, Phil has played alongside some of the world’s most influential house DJs and vocalists including Marshall Jefferson, Ron Carroll, Copyright, Timmy Vegas, Simon Dunmore, Peyton, Julie McKnight and Chuck Love
In 2008 Phil also embarked on his tour of the Middle East, playing at popular party destinations around Beirut and in Dubai. These included famed clubs such as Crobar and the Basement.
With a dedication to bringing the music to the people and doing it…strictly for the love… 2009 looks to be another huge year for Phil and the Sydney faithful
Our House Movement (OHM) is a collective movement to promote and support ‘real house' and classic disco in intimate, friendly and personal environments throughout Sydney.
This 'real house' sound encompasses everything from deep, organic, jazzy, soulful, gospel, latin, and african tipped house music.
This vision is enabled by holding regular 'Our House' parties, which aim to restore the heart and soul into Sydney clubbing culture. Creating a party vibe that cannot be explained, but only felt. Playing music that touches the soul, whilst using live vocalists and musicians.
Our passion for this sound is heavily influenced by house music’s roots, which evolved from New York’s disco scene in the late 70’s. Inspiration is also drawn from the DJ’s and producers who have helped develop this sound. Figures such as Frankie Knuckles, Marshall Jefferson, Dennis Ferrer, Kerri Chandler, Norman Jay, Joey Negro, Danny Krivit, Stephen Allkins, Theo Parrish, Lil Louis and Masters At Work.
Together we can continue the evolution of this beautiful sound, and help it to flourish in Sydney like never before. The possibilities are endless.
This is our house music!

THE GUEST SPOT FT DJ RICARDO TORRES OF LOS ANGELES CALIFORNIA
PEACE HOUSE FAMILY,
THIS WEEK WE COME BACK TO THE STATES TO LOS ANGELES TO FIND A GREAT MIXOLOGIST HOLDING IT DOWN ON THE WEST COAT.
WE BRING YOU DJ RICARDO TORRES
The music of West Coast DJ, Ricardo Torres can best be described as a blend of deep, soulful house inflected with the particular sound of the west coast vibe, sultry and smooth. He plays the music that house heads love to dance to; confident that when the music flows from hands that love house it can be an uplifting, groovy and sexy experience.
“I am on an eternal quest to achieve that perfect mix – (that’s) when the ideal tracks come together to form a superbly flawless union”.
Ricardo has been on this quest ever since his first chance encounter at the turntables, in 1987 at his college radio station. Shortly thereafter in 1988, he was first introduced to house music. Ricardo quickly changed his direction and followed the early days of Chicago Acid House. He moved towards this style of music since he found it to have a new and unfamiliar energy within itself.
In 1995 Ricardo, moved to Los Angeles, a city basking in sunrays and radiating the good vibes he himself perpetuated. And here, Ricardo discovered the funky, soulfulness of the west coast sound. Many of his early hero’s such as Jay-J, Chris Lum, Julius Papp, Mark Farina, and others gave him the desire to gravitate towards this deeper, more soulful West Coast style.
While still a local Los Angeles DJ, Ricardo - inspired by his love for this genre-decided early on in the year 2000 to post his mixes online to share with the world. This act of sharing his musical vision without prejudice or limitations caused him to be sought after to play his brand of house music in cities all over the world. Since then, Ricardo has played in various clubs in Los Angeles, San Francisco, San Diego, Las Vegas, Miami, Montreal, Toronto, Belgrade, and London. And he continues to offer up his masterful mixes, as host of syndicated radio shows online as well as on satellite radio in the USA.
Within the recent past Ricardo has teamed up with a very talented band of Deep House DJ’s called West Coast Collective. He found this to be the perfect collaboration since the members of West Coast Collective share the same passion for the music and maintain the same ideals of the genre. They are committed to bringing exceptional music and a beautiful vibe to the people while honoring the culture of house music. But most of all, Ricardo just loves playing music that inspires the heads to get up and dance!
