In 2003 DK Watts and Lance Leber joined forces as the Short Bus Kids and launched Bounce House Recordings. In 10 years time the face of the music industry has shifted incredibly with vinyl giving way to digital downloads (mainly the mp3). The early Bounce House releases on vinyl were essential in putting the Short Bus Kids on the map, before the label fully embraced the digital age. In the past decade many noted artists have worked with Bounce House (Da Sunlounge, Kinky Movement, Alexander East, Rob Pearson, Al Bradley and Oded Nir to name a few) as well as many up-and-comers. The label has been supported by a number of top club and radio DJs worldwide and has been recognized by industry magazines such as I DJ Magazine, De:Bug, Chicago 5, DJ Mag and DMC.
To celebrate 10 years of Bounce House, label owner DK Watts has remixed and edited select Short Bus Kids tracks mainly from the label’s vinyl days. The album also includes a bonus previously unreleased track (The Way) as well as remasters of 2 other top Short Bus Kids tracks (Workin and Gotta Get Up).
We hope you enjoy this album and we appreciate the support you have given us in the past 10 years. Here’s to the next 10 years!
