Flashback to 1986 listening to Little Louie Vega and Glen Friscia mixing up a stew of styles on Hot 103 (before it was Hot 97), running house and freestyle records like they were hip-hop records. Remixers like Shep Pettibone, Chris Barbosa, Flood, Kevin Saunderson, Francios K, Justin Strauss, David Morales, and SAW were big influences as well. Loctgruv took notes throughout high school while schooling on New Order, Jody Watley, Depeche Mode, The Beastie Boys, NY Radio, freestyle and classic early house and techno. Projects ensued; a stint on the radio during college, a move to Philly, some Philly club residencies, (ENVY, Swanky Bubbles, Proto Lounge, Valanni, Lounge 125, Silk City, Fluid) induction into Tigerhook Corp., and a record for Bosh that garnered positive reviews in iDJ and DJ Magazine (UK). Jez Torrance of iDJ described the sound as melancholic, spiritual and even "spatial, luscious and downright beautiful."
