It's impossible to trivialize the impact of The Tracks Are Alive, Dave Pezzner's 2010 album on Freerange Records. A key catalyst in pushing Deep House back to the top of the underground music scene, Tracks also turned Dave into...
I love that these guys did this. After several years in limbo, the lads are back with Slum Science album of unfashionably downtempo, trippy and funky tunes. This sound isn't particularly hip at the moment but it's always a...
What you see above is one of the most iconic label stickers in my collection (and the track is pretty good too) - Keep Pushin' by Boris Dlugosch and the One True Diva, Inaya Day. Peppermint Jam - home...
There's much to love about Giorgio Luceri's warm 12" on the London-based Fly By Night Music. Luceri is still a pretty young guy, but already has a solid LP and a spectacular EP on Chicago's Mathematics run by Jamal...
Noleian Reusse (Black Tekno, Africans with Mainframes) mixes Volume 185 of New Mix Monday, 5 Magazine's weekly House Music guest mix series. Listen to Noleian Reusse: New Mix Monday vol 185 by5 Magazine on hearthis.at Proof positive of the insane talent...
The first thing you noticed were the words "Chicago" and "Detroit" becoming adjectives rather than nouns. A Chicago Sound, A Detroit Sound - you can find a hundred tracks released each day described as such. Then came the death of...
Kano: I'm Ready (Emergency Records) Dharma: Plastic Doll (System Music) Gaucho: Dance Forever (System Music) Pink Project: Disco Project (Zanza Records) Ask even a knowledgeable fan of that confusing but utterly exhilarating era of early '80s dance music about one Mr. Stefano Pulga and they might not...
I like to imagine that there's a single apartment block in Paris where people like Brawther, Jef K., Jeremy Underground Paris and Kool Vibe live, work and carry on like actors in an underground reality TV show. Which is...
Years ago, I knew this crazy Serbian poet/philosopher. With his flowing beard and hair and world-weary grimace, give him about ten years and a few more misfortunes and he'd look like Zeus. He showed me several books he had...
Every month 5 Magazine's Man+Machine features talks about musical machines and the men & women who love them. This month, ahead of his date headlining 5 Magazine's Eight Year Anniversary Party, we talked about the production process with dance music...
'It's definitely not a throwback record,' Colette says of When the Music's Loud, the long-awaited album released in late August on her Candy Talk label. This much is clear: at a time when everyone is trying to sound like...
An exclusive mix from Chicago House Music legend Johnny Fiasco marks Volume 184 of New Mix Monday, 5 Magazine's weekly House Music guest mix series. To say I'm thrilled about this mix is an extreme understatement. Johnny Fiasco (Defected/MN2S/Om/Klassik Fiasco)...
Giorgio Luceri is from Italy. He makes fantastic tracks. And these two statements - lately at least - appear to be completely redundant. I first heard about Giorgio Luceri from Mathematics, Jamal Moss' Chicago label, which released his EP Eternamente...
Beating up on David Guetta at this point is about as fun as slapping around a middle aged accountant in a leather mask and gimp suit: it's not really that satisfying and you get the creepy feeling that the...
For fans of King Britt's more experimental sounds, the Philadelphia producer released a lustrous, moving "9.11.13" - written, he says, "today for today" - as a free download. Emotive to the marrow.  
Feed your milk crates: two of our favorite joints in Chicago are holding weekend sales for the heads. First off, our friends at The Silver Room are holding a Basement Sale all weekend long. Included are "over 1000 records",...
Four thousand, five hundred and twenty eight miles from Chicago - in Milan, Italy, the town he grew up in and which he still lives in today - Roberto Corinaldesi found himself at a loss for words. It was 1993,...
You know his name, even if you don't understand why it's stamped on every device, movie poster and CD you've purchased in the last 30 years. He was Ray Dolby, founder of Dolby Laboratories. Mr. Dolby died today in...
5 Magazine risks becoming, in essence, Rick Wade Monthly, but I can't pass on a good record because an artist is on a roll. And Rick Wade is on a fucking roll - at least 20 tunes that I've...
