I'm A House Gangster presents The Gangstercast

The GANGSTERCAST DJ mix series comes from the I'M A HOUSE GANGSTER movement. A HOUSE GANGSTER has the undying commitment and passion for House music, they know that this music is not a trend, it's a culture. The mixes all come from the DJs that follow this culture and love and respect the sound - some are established names on the worldwide scene, some are the future stars of tomorrow, and they all represent the raw, underground essence of real House music. Each mix in the GANGSTERCAST series allows the DJ to present their own take on House music and what it means to them. Featured DJs will include DJ Sneak, Tripmastaz, Ramon Tapia, Doc Martin, The Martinez Brothers, Phil Weeks, Hector Moralez, DJ W!LD, Andrea Oliva, Arturo Garces and many others.




Arturo Garces - Gangstercast 13

Born and raised in San Jose, California, Arturo Garces has been surrounded by dance music his entire life. The son of a serious collector of funk, soul and disco records, Arturo grew up listening to the roots of house music. These early influences are evident in his works as a DJ and producer today where his music has helped define the unique and emerging Silicon Valley sound. Arturo has released music on both established & strictly underground labels including Robsoul, Cross Section, Magnetic  Oomph, Smoke City Music, Subliminal Soul, Sneak Classics and many more, not forgetting releasing on and working as label manager for Jump Recordings, Beat Bum Music and Resource Records.  He's also licensed tracks to high-profile compilations such as Fabric #62 mixed by DJ Sneak. Regarding his Gangstercast, Arturo simply states that his mix is, "my vision of how a dance floor should get worked. The House Gangster sound for me is all about driving beats. A beat down if you will. It?s all about movement on the dance floor. I pretty much picked out some tracks that were moving me at the moment. If I was on the dance floor, this is what I would want to hear." He's a devotee to the House Gangster ethos, "The House Gangster movement to me is all about keeping the true house sound alive. House Music has always kept me moving in the right direction. I live this day and night 24/7. It means the world to me." "Thank you to my family and friends for the inspiration. Big ups to DJ Sneak and the IAHG fam for having me on the Gangstercast!"
