Hopefully, somewhere before, in the middle, or after DJs bang us out with the latest sample/filter music-stuff, they will treat us to something musically that will fulfill our minds and emotions along with our feet. Through Chico Hamilton, Joe...
FROM PRODUCING AND DJING a myriad of genres, spoken word performances or popping up in clothing ads or independent films, singular paradigms don't exist for this forerunner within music culture. You may have come across the buzz surrounding his...
This is an awesome cut up by the Texas duo Backseat Bingo. The original mix is impossibly funky and perfect for that transcendental moment when people can't help but to throw their hands in the air. Some DJs need...
The title track "Blue Light Special" is probably my favorite track of the trio: jazzy, happy, melodic. It puts you in the mind of a warm Spring night in the city - wherever you live. Check out the swingin'...
Right on the heels of the exciting "Twilight People", Robert Owens is back, delivering fresh vocals alongside sizzling techy production by Atjazz, and Slope! You might rock all three interpretations over the course of an evening, and you won't...
Note: The 5 Magazine DJ Series was a monthly CD series released in a limited edition from March 2007 to November 2008. We featured mixes from legends such as Frankie Knuckles, Gene Hunt and Terry Hunter to the next...
This is a nice, breezy track, strictly on the Deep House side from Plus Groove out of Toronto. It's not a vocal in the traditional sense - more like jazz scat, making sounds as an instrument with a vibrant...
Probably the best remixing from Fred Everything since the job he did with Iz and Diz's "Magnificent", his mix of this track by Atnarko (from Florida) has been circulating on CDR bootlegs for a long time and finally surfaced...
In his more than forty years in the business, Dr. Bob Jones has seen dance music trends come and go. Whether he's selecting music for his worldwide gigs, or an underground radio show, he remains consistent by sticking to...
FOR THE HOUSE MUSIC faithful there are few places on the planet more sacred than Gramaphone Records. For decades it has been the source from which Chicago's House sound has flowed. Luminaries such as Derrick Carter, DJ Sneak, Ralphie...

Gant Man Interview

Cajmere caused a stir a year ago with the release of the "Shake and Pop" remixes on Relief. Among the edits by DJ Sneak, Dealer and Mark Grant was a pair of remixes by Gant Garrard who, like Cajmere/Green...
It was tough to decide between the second package of remixes of "So Lonely" and "I Go Deep" for this month's editor's pick, but if I couldn't pick this one, I was at least going to make sure it...
This was sent via CDR by Donovan (aka DJD3), a talented DJ that was for a time last Fall and Winter was splitting his time between residencies in Chicago and Miami. This is a pretty fun Deep House track...
SINCE THE EARLY 1990s, DJ, producer, and collaborator Anthony Nicholson has been blowing up the underground airwaves with his dance music while doing what he does best - producing and spinning. With hit tracks like "Dance Anthology" (Peacefrog Records),...
A fantastic new single from French label Qalomota with some of the greatest (if still relatively unknown among the househeads in the US) up and coming producers working these days. Bobien's vocal is restrained, sweet and soulful, bringing comparisons...
Chuck Love came through Zentra in May, though I wasn't able to attend the show. This dual CD set arrived in the mail a week later and I'm kicking myself now for not making it. Disc One is a...
IT'S HARD TO BELIEVE that anyone could pass over Kerri Chandler, but that's exactly what we've seen happening. When the sun rises every morning and sets in the west, you can take it for granted. As a producer, as...
TIME TO ADMIT THE obvious: Lady D has become a full-fledged industry force in the worldwide House scene. In the twelve years that she's been practicing her craft, she's torn up more dancefloors than most of us have ever...

Bargrooves Black

This is a two CD mix set covering a pretty wide array of genres for just one release. Disc 1 is compiled and mixed by Ben Sowton; much of it is trancey and falls pretty firmly on the more...
He does it once more! That's right Chicago's own DJ Slugo drops another classic booty mix CD. And he proves that he must be recognized as truly one of the foremost pioneers of Ghetto House, aka Juke. This album...
