This week we got the sad news that Michael Kandel the co founder of the ground breaking US record label Exist Dance had died, aged just 47. Mike was originally from Chicago but moved to California and played a key role defining what was to become know as the 'West Coast Sound'. Look out for a couple of classic tracks he recorded in the early to mid 90's with his fellow Exist Dance founder Tom Chasteen as Tranquility Bass. A sad loss.
