“Rock the House” was a song I made in about 2003 that was characteristic of the hard house I was listening to at the time.  Although I had been interested in American(NY, LA, and Chicago style) hardhouse for a while, I had just become familiar with UK hardhouse around 2001-2002.

At the time I created this track, I wanted to “prove to myself” I could conjure a competent, contemporary hardhouse track.  I’d immersed myself in lots of the Tidy Trax catalog during that time, and the song mirrors that influence with the presence of the famous Hoover sound, the klubby bass, and the hard, fast sampling and scratching.
