After a two month break, DJcity’s MikiDz Show live stream returned on Monday with house legends Bad Boy Bill and Richard Vission. The two performed a B2B set, which included records that they pressed exclusively for their “Back to Vinyl” tour.
The hour-long throw down, which broke the show’s peak live viewers record, featured a variety of new and classic house. A former DMC competitor, Bill also showed off his turntablism skills.

House icon Bad Boy Bill and co-host of Power 106’s Powertools Mixshow, Richard Vission, have formed a new group called House Connection. The duo’s first release this year is a remix of Alessia Cara’s hit single, “Here.” Their 125 BPM rework is a bass-heavy, uptempo version of the original.
“Here” is Cara’s debut single and appears on her EP, Four Pink Walls. The track is currently number nine on Billboard’s Hot 100 and number four on Shazam’s Top 100.

’80s music has been an influential force in recent years and Wild Style’s new single “Take Me Home” is a prime example.
Upon listening to the track, it quickly becomes clear that the funk, freestyle and Miami bass genres of that era have inspired the singer duo and their producer Richard Vission. Wild Style’s sound isn’t completely throwback though, as it also contains elements of today’s dance music, giving it a fresh twist.
Watch their video for “Take Me Home” above and download the track on DJcity.
