Electronic music, as we've lamented time and time again in these pages, is nowhere on the radio spectrum in Chicago. Outside of a record here and there, it hasn't been for years. And while we're stating the obvious, let's...
From Switzerland, Jamie Lewis has been rocking the tables and carrying the flag for House Music for more than 20 years.
(This article about Spencer Kincy was originally published at the now-defunct housemusicdaily site. Since a few other things I've written reference this, I thought it sensible to reproduce it here. I wrote something else about Spencer Kincy a couple...
Between the time that I write this and the time you read this, more than a hundred mix compilations will be released. I don't know anyone who buys them, and despite being I champion of this music, I can't...
Fat fucking beats pounding, a serpentine groove and everything but the afros for the first release by Chicago crew The Chosen Few. To complicate matters for future discologists, the sample chorus on this one is actually by another "Chosen...
Richard Earnshaw is the founder of Duffnote Recordings and renowned as one of the top producers and remixers on the planet. Listen to Richard Earnshaw: 5 Magazine's New Mix Monday (2009) by5 Magazine on hearthis.at Starting off as a classically trained...
Dave Miller puts together four slabs of heavy Deep House here, built largely around the strong vocal of Kelly Hayden. "Take What You Want" is a fierce tune - catchy, soulful, danceable - basically everything you'd want from a...
Let's go back now, to the period after Disco was purged from the airwaves but before House Music was born. Musicologists have dubbed this urban musical outpost "Boogie Music", dominated by the Funk and Soul artists of the era...
Ten tracks and almost a who's who (no pun intended) of Chicago producers making waves these days, each of them taking a turn beating down a track from Bear Who's 2008 album The Beatbox. Paul Johnson's remix of "It's...
Incredible. DJ Boxx is a name well known to locals but he may as well hire a booking agent now - after this track finishes making its way around the world, he's going to need one. Carla Prather delivers...
5 Magazine 2009 interview with Soulful House producer and DJ Andy Compton.
As people said about French actress Sarah Bernhardt, Barbara Tucker could probably sing the names out of a phonebook and make it an anthem. Instead, Alix Alvarez in his choice remix of Tucker + Tuccillo's "One Desire" builds a...
This track has been pirated almost since WMC ended. I'm not sure if that's an indication of the tremendous vibe around this song or what, but Strictly released it on its own, with no remixes, quite possibly to get...
Danism hits a home run with this EP. "Try" is an older track presented here both in original form as well as a stunning pair of David Harness remixes. "Just Let It Happen" and "LaLa" are more on the...
You don't have to ask yourself if Dimitri From Paris loves what he does. His name is on so many productions, comps, remixes and other projects these days that you can tell this guy lives and breathes the 4/4...
We were shocked to hear that our friend, former Red Dog resident DJ Lil John Coleman, was no longer on the air at WGCI where he had been a mix show DJ for almost eight years. While a lot...
ABOUT A YEAR AGO, my excitable friend Kevin Starke of the vinyl emporium Kstarke Records told me that he'd recently run into K. Joy - "the singer on that track 'Like This' that Ron Hardy always used to play,"...

Atnarko: Deep EP

This is the third release on LA-based S.O.W.A.T. Music and the 2nd by Atnarko - an impressive run for a label that just debuted four or five months ago. The original mix is a funky house stomper with high...
Atnarko and Jevne combine here for an original production (interestingly, all of the four released remixes are done by others) on Onethirty, Jevne's home imprint. This is a juicy slab of funky house and most of the remixes that...
Aphrodisiax are a relatively new combo out of west London, made up by the DJ/production team of Gavin Peters and Sy Sez and generating a lot of heat from the likes of Phil Asher, Louie Vega and the like....
