This year at the amazing Into the Valley festival in Sweden we had the chance to talk to one of the early innovators of Chicago House music, the legendary Jamie Principle. After enjoying his magical live performance where we felt transported back to the beginnings of the raw house in the 80s, we met up with Jamie and his manager Maria from NY based Def Mix records. The two of them welcomed us warmly and we felt like being friends all over the interview. To start with, we passed Jamie our questions and gave him the freedom to speak about whatever comes to his mind, and so he started to tell us his very unique history…

Last weekend we had the pleasure to visit one of the upcoming Swedish underground electronic music festivals, the second edition of the Into the Valley, taking place in the wonderful green middle of Scandinavia, three hours in the north-west of Stockholm. Its main stage being an amphitheatre within an impressive old limestone quarry in midst of idyllic green woods, plus the impressive line up are symbolic for the fact that it has all it needs to become a new melting pot for the upfront of the international electronic music scene in the otherwise rather unpopulated Swedish landscape of electronic festivals.
