However it was ‘That’s Jazz’ his update of Dajae and Cajmere defining jazzy house record ‘U Got Me Up’ that made both the most influential DJs and the major industry publications alike sit up and take notice of DKS. Achieving coveted hotspots in the DMC Buzz Chart and the Cool Cuts Chart in Music Week and receiving absolutely huge support from the likes of Sarah Main, DJ Chus, Chris Lake, Riva Starr and Satoshi Tomie it was definitely one of the most surprising and euphoric track to surface in Miami WMC 2009...
