Breaking: NYC Legendary DJ/Producers Johnny Vicious & Tony Draper Back?

Highly Respected DJ/Producers Johnny Vicious & Tony Draper could be returning to the producing world. In a recent Facebook post on Johnny Vicious personal page he stated that he was putting some unfinished productions back on the table. Vicious –

“Tonight I’m putting some unfinished productions back on the table, I have been fighting with myself about doing music again, and what’s killing it is that there is no inspiration out there. Im sorry guys i cant jump on the band wagon with techno… I feel that techno is too repetitive and boring. I lived through the original techno and house era and my friends this does not compare to even 10% of the tracks that were made in the 80s and 90s. I however do like the really hard techno that Adam Beyer plays, it has the driving hard soul that I love. I have been trying to find some sort of inspiration for the last couple years, what’s funny is I was going through You tube randomly and I stumbled on a KTU mix I did from 1999. Crazy how I found my inspiration going through my own mixes. It reminded me of why I was making music in the first place and brought the vicious back. Let’s see what happens in the next couple days. Till then here is the mix that brought me back to life!”
