Clubbers from Europe, Australia, and various American metropolises have moved to their sultry grooves. "Our goal is to have some fun along with our audience, or maybe convert some people who didn't know they could like house," says Mendoza. "Our strategy is to only play music we really like. There is a certain range of style within that music. We can get a feel for the night and the people we're with, and go from there.
