I've been attending events and enjoying the unique sound of Dj Love for over 10 years now in the Dallas area. I first met him in 1998 at The Lizard Lounge, where he had a residency and literally made the video bar (smaller room) more popular than the main room. His style is 100% unique, and aside from his pure skill, I would say his taste in music proves him to be a leader in the breakbeat genre. I built my collection around what I heard him spinning from the mid-90's onward. His collection, which is not only vast, but is so eclectic in nature, set up a huge challenge for me when it came to me developing my own collection over the years. In Dallas today, there are pompous, over-rated DJ's at every major venue, all spinning (well, playing via digital mixing) the same tracks at every club/party. Some in particular seem to blatantly forget or outright ignore that the roots of the scene they now consider their domain were in fact laid by DJ Love. While I no longer make it out nearly as much as I did back then, I still make sure to show up for one of his humble gatherings at his current two local residencies as often as my schedule allows. Being internationally known and recognized, DJ Love could be spinning his no-nonsense, unique, gritty yet highly spirited styles throughout the world, let alone the US and even larger Dallas venues. He makes quite a statement by utterly refusing to be a follower of the mainstream and continuing to cater to the crowd with which he feels at home. Keeping everything 100% vinyl and refusing to lean on the ease-creating technologies of today's times, DJ Love makes a huge statement about his genuine talent and respect for the electronic music industry from a roots-level standpoint. Just looking at his discography and taking a listen will open you to a world all his own, as there are no simple shortcuts made in his productions. Everything you hear is real- the keyboards and all the studio instruments are integrated into his music. There are no DJ Love tracks that are laid out in a couple of hours using Fruity-Loops or Reason-- he is the real deal. Talent speaks for itself. I am forever a fan, and he remains my favorite DJ to this day.

DJ Love's music always delivers a lot of energy, diverse styles, and fUNk filled beats guaranteed to make ya wanna dance. He combines a whole slew of fUNky sounds and makes them work together in a way that's mesmerizing. His signature scratching abilities are amazing. A-M-A-Z-I-N-G. DJ Love's one of Dallas' finest and respected internationally. Despite Dallas and it's dead scene Love delivers in every aspect and doesn't let the stale attitudes of unworthy music embellishers ever set him back. He shocks me every time I have the opportunity to hear him spin. I love his music selection and he never fails to bust out an old-school track that keeps you wanting more... To know him is an honor. He makes Dallas sound better and somehow wish Dallas would take some time out to remember what makes them tick so we can make the scene come alive again.... So much talent that's so worth hearing. Big UPS to Frank B. McCright of Stellar Music also known as DJ Love. Respectfully... -L.
