Released 26th February 2016
With a solid collection of productions and remixes to his name, Arturo's music has helped define the unique and emerging Silicon Valley sound. This approach blends the driving, beat-laden beauty of techno with the soulful, deep melodies of house.
Born and raised in San Jose, California, Arturo Garces has been surrounded by dance music his entire life. The son of a serious collector of funk, soul and disco records, Arturo grew up listening to the roots of house music. Interested in making his own music, Arturo got hold of a sampler in 1995 and hasn't looked back since. These early influences are evident in his works as a DJ and producer today for labels such as Magnetic Recordings (DJ Sneak) and Phil Weeks' Robsoul imprint.
He has new projects and remixes coming out continually on the underground scene, hitting the right mood for the dance-floor consistently. In addition Arturo is the label manager for San Jose's house imprint Jump Recordings, Beat Bum Music, and techno label Resource Records. He also has a new Tuesday night residency in downtown San Jose, Ca Rhythm Ritual. With his hard work, dedication and passion for dance music, Arturo is definitely one to watch.
This is Arturo's 3rd release on Cross Section with the label boss Chris Simmonds on remix duties.

A re-issue and remaster of another classic from the Cross Section stable on vinyl due to public demand. “Rush N Soul” is a certified anthem in Detroit since it’s first release in 1997 on his Active X-TraX ep and has been supported by the likes of Derrick Carter, DJ Sneak, Honey Dijon (BBC Radio1’s Residency) Mark Knight (Toolroom Radio), Mike Huckaby, Junior Sanchez, plus a host of other House Music heavy hitters!
On the flip is a brand new production from Chris, “Do What You Like”, displaying his continued passion for music production, pushing boundaries and taking risks. This track is definitely delivering attitude, and following no trends!
This release is a part of a series of releases forthcoming to celebrate 25 years of Cross Section which has been a constant giver and inspirational label for the real House heads across the globe!
