Strictly Rhythm is back. After four years of legal action with major label Warner Music, Mark Finkelstein has acquired the catalogue and copyright for all things Strictly. What does that mean? Think about classics like Ultra Nate's "Free," Armand Van Helden "Witchdokta," Real 2 Reel "I Like to Move It," and River Ocean featuring India "Love and Happiness." Think about producers like Josh Wink, Armand Van Hedlen, Erick Morillo, Roger Sanchez, and Kenny Dope who all got their start on Strictly Rhythm.
For the first time, all of these classic records will be available for digital download. After an initial weeklong exclusive stay on Defected.com, the tracks will be available for download from other sites including Beatport and DJ Download.
