My heart is so heavy right now. Paul Johnson. Thank you for so much amazing house music. I hope you don’t mind that I tell people about our last conversation a few months ago, when we spoke about being members of an exclusive club no one wants to be a part of…The “Gunshot Victim” club. I tried to not seem too star struck, as we spoke, but it was obvious I was. I told you that it was a lot of your earlier disco house that I played nonstop in my dj sets that helped shaped my dj style, even today. Thank you for the amazing music and the inspiration. Rest easy, bro. I will hold on to those voicemails forever.
