House hero DJ Sneak provides “For The Ladies, Vol 1″ with his signature house take on the holiday’s luv-ed up vibes, an hour and change of feel-good vocals and some very unexpected remix choices.
Subscribe to the Foolcast via iTunes or your favorite RSS reader at the main page, where you can also download the mixes directly.
