Hands down, one of my biggest influences. Call it acid house, house, techouse, pop...it is in a genre unto its own. Jon Marsh's voice oozes soul and passion. In addition to making amazing music, Jon is a talented DJ and one hell of a nice guy.

I'm surprised almost no one gave his opinion about Beloved. The band is definitely worth mentioning. It's a fairly unique mixture of house, techno and commercial music. Really fantastic in some moments, driven by clear ideas of love, freedom... etc... :)
