La Isla Marisa was mixed in April, 2001. I met my wife on the dance floor in 1999. By 2001 I was completely in love with her. In July, 2001 we took a month long trip to Europe. Before we left I made one last, major leap in courting of this beautiful woman who, is now my wife. That leap is this mix. At the time of it's release Naked Music, Om Records, and the French House sound were extremely popular. Dennis Ferrer was making waves on the Ibadan record label, another major force in 2001. My wife and I have always been huge fans of Naked Music and Om Records. Many of the records featured on this mix are an important part of our history together. We danced to these songs countless times during the formative years of our relationship. I opened up for Mark Farina in 2001 and after the set, at the club, I dropped 100 limited copies of La Isla Marisa, for her. 11 years later, here is the mix again in honor of our 2nd Wedding Anniversary. I Love you Mari, por vida mi amor.
