While it has been told before, we all wanted to try to tell the story of the birth of house in under ten minutes. With contributions from legends like Frankie Knuckles and Kevin Saunderson we just about did it.

If there’s one artist in the electronic music scene right now that embodies music, art and culture, that artist is Sir Bob Cornelius Rifo aka The Bloody Beetroots. Sir Bob is renown for ambitiously connecting the worlds of new and old music and showing his fans the development and natural evolution which music takes. His latest vision, was the video for The Bloody Beetroots feat Tommy Lee “RAW” The single is taken from his second artist album ‘Hide’ which came out last year.

First published in 1983, Mixmag is the world’s longest standing and biggest selling dance music magazine, and we’re bringing our knowledge and heritage to our TV channel.

Olmeca Tequilas are produced in the heart of Los Altos, 2104 meters above sea level in the western state of Jalisco in Mexico, using artisanal production methods. The result of our unique production and distillation process is a complete range of rich tasting Tequilas, all of which contain Tahona liquid.
