SECT aka Soul Clap, Tanner Ross & Sergio Santos Live @ As You Like It, San Francisco - 09-10-2010 - (7 Hour Mix) by R_co
Found this set the other night on soundcloud. After downloading the +400mb file which is 7 hours long, started going through it and thought what a great set for an afternoon session. Nice deep sounds in here.
If anyone can produce a tracklist for at least the first 3 hours of it, there will be a crisp $20 and appraisel in it for your ID'ing skills.

Black Rose is a very exciting project which was put together by two legends. Henrik Schwarz and Jesse Rose, both are recognised individually for their production and Dj/Live shows. The duo have made tracks in the past, however it wasn't until Jesse invited Henrik to his night at Panorama Bar, Henrik proposed, “Look should we try and do a back-to-back where I play live and you play records”. Subsequently, promotors were trying to book 'Black Rose' from then on.
The duo only really play together about 3 times a year, its a grind to setup, as well running labels and their very busy lives.
We have a 2 hr set which was recorded at the end of last year, will up soon, big file sorry. Watch this space
Yesterday marked the birth of Black Rose's first track, called anthem. Now readily available on sites such as beatport.
