From 1988 to 1991, if you saw Justin Strauss or Just Rite in the name of a remix, you knew you would get a high quality pop house mix with a very "full" sound at a time when a lot of dance tracks were still sounding rather "thin".

It was obvious the man is a music lover; he treated everything he touched with respect. His mixes of 808 State's "Pacific" are among his best work, combining the clarinet and loon samples from "Pacific 202" with the original "Pacific State" bassline and style of percussion. I also really loved his remix of Depeche Mode's "Nothing".

I'm glad he seems to be having a bit of a renaissance now. What happened in the '90s and early '00s, though? He all but disappeared.
