For the love of house began life as a fork in the road from Housebeat Radio. The station was inspired by established radio shows, notably The Global House Session with Steve ‘Soulmafia’ Watts and Niall Rednond’s ‘Digital Groove’ and to some extent, Grant Nelson’s ‘Housecall’. The whole idea came about through Rob Hayes and Joey Snow together with JC Unique and Matt Kye from AM2PM. Shows were broadcast on Rob’s test server in order to keep the party going after other popular shows.
Steadily, as is only natural with artistic types, ideas of what we wanted to achieve went in different directions and JC broke away to see what could be achieved without a high level of streaming expertise. The result is this station, Fortheloveofhouse.org with a focus on, where possible, live broadcasters playing the finest of all genres of house music such as Soulful House, Jackin’ House, Deep House, Tech House, Nu Disco, Funky House, Classic House, UK garage, Uptempo Soul, Funk, Techno, Trance and almost any flavour in between.
The station is mostly funded by generous donations from listeners and DJ’s alike, is registered with PRS and with support and web development work carried out by U2R Design which is owned by JC Unique along with Unique 2 Rhythm Records.
You’ll frequently find original artists, DJ’s and producers participating in the chat with many of the shows reaching regular top 10 status on social music platforms such as Mixcloud.
DJ’s on the station include: Steve Soulmafia Watts, Martin White, Jordan Trove, Scott Walker, James Lee, Mike Granacki, Missfire DJ, Vicky Ramirez, Bruno Martino, Dr. Rob, Sjoerd Wijdoogen, Sooz, AM2PM, PeterMac, Mac Arvid, Retrogroove, Reeves Watson, Del Sanderson and Soulboy Mick, with the list growing weekly.
Fortheloveofhouse.org also partners with other stations, including Gravity FM, Freak 31, Eurobeatradio.net and London Music Radio
