I once had the pleasure of interviewing Tom Trago for Fabric. He spoke about how “the whole Beat Dimensions and SaRa thing was very influential [to him] starting out.” The Beat Dimensions records were of course put together by Cinnaman (with Jay Scarlett), another house and techno producer who started out doing the hip-hop thing. “The hip-hop DJs and the house DJs in Amsterdam are all interconnected” Trago was keen to point out, “they all come to our Trouw parties and we go to their hip-hop parties too.”
