With almost 25+ years in techno, Marco Bailey is no stranger to the underground dance scene. After suffering a bad motocross accident that put an end to his career in sports around the age of 18, he found that music was “the new thing that gave him goosebumps again” and decided to pursue his new dream of becoming a DJ. Marco Bailey has since become a true icon in dance music.

“There was a time, I think in maybe 1999, 2000, 2001, where at least 60% of my music was Marco Bailey Records. It was incredible!” – Carl Cox on Marco Bailey

We take a peek at the studio set-up of ‘G-house’ dudes Amine Edge & DANCE… via DJ Mag

French production duo Amine Edge & DANCE coined the phrase “G house” to describe their low-slung, tough and funked-up take on dance music. Initially drawing inspiration from the gangsta rap of classic hip-hop acts like the Notorious BIG and Dr Dre on breakthrough tunes for 2DiY4 (‘Going to Heaven with the Goodie-Goodies’) fusing samples of rhymes with house beats — hence the G house tag — they draw from wider influences too for releases on their own CUFF label.

Catching up with the boys as they sit comfy in the New York setting of Sound Off Studios, Amine Edge & DANCE are recording in style. Sly & Robbie, Wu-Tang, Akon, Busta Rhymes and many more have laid down serious beats in this place, and the boys are set to follow. DJ Mag took time to explore the studio set-up of the leading lights of the G house movement.

The rather cool Sound OFF music studios is located at – 40 w 27th street, 7th floor New York, NY 10001

French Connection stores, beret hats, snail cuisine; France is famous for a lot of things, but, soon and very soon, the EU state will also be known for pumping out the most exciting sound to invade dance music since instrumental trap. G-House, or, “gangsta house,” is a term coined two years ago by Marseille-based production duo, Amine Edge & DANCE—a concept which allows them to bring together their love of deep, dark, bass-ridden house, and hip-hop music. From Miami ravers to London shufflers, their cuts—such as the Biggie Smalls-sampling “Going To Heaven With The Goodie-Goodies,” and Lil Kim-inspired “Bitches In The Project”—may have already found a place in the heart of the underground house scenes across the globe, but these musical brother are only just getting started. Here’s Amine Edge to give us the lowdown.
