There really wasn't a time that I didn't know about him. Can you imagine Chicago in the early 1990s without Tommie Sunshine? As I first knew him, Tommie was what you might have called (and what writers then did...
Get outcher Number Two pencils and a clean sheet of paper, and at the end we'll be having a quiz. Quite a few of the classic House artists of the late '80s have been 'rediscovered' of late, to far...
Do we have to do this again? Oh why not. After all, this is Chicago, where you probably voted (twice!) for someone you don't like even if you're unaware of it. For the literally dozens of you who might care,...
There isn't much I can tell you about Tom Moulton that you don't know already. Tom made modern DJing possible, though he's never been one. He was probably the most indispensable person in terms of making dance music what...

Possibly the least exciting phrase in the English language is "out now on Beatport". This is especially true in the summer, when according to the rites of some ancient tradition labels shut down and toss industrial-sized cannisters of chum...
Out of everyone from the Siamese Twin cities of Chicago and Detroit (one has the heart, one has the brains, and I'll let you decide which is which) that's getting a little shine from overseas these days, Norm Talley...
