File Under: Educational. Promoting Native Instruments' Maschine, MK walks us through the process of creating his remixes for Storm Queen's (aka Morgan Geist) 2010 smash "Look Right Through".  
With faceless artists making disposable tracks based on anonymous samples for a dishonest percentage of a pathetic gross, it's somehow appropriate that Beatport has a new owner who has declined comment and will probably continue to do so. According to...
If there is a Robert Johnson of Chicago House Music, it's James "Jack Rabbit" Martin. No one has ever claimed that Martin walked down to a crossroads and had his 303 caressed by the Devil's hands. He wasn't poisoned by...
This week, we're very proud to present an exclusive mix from Detroit Deep House master and Harmonie Park's own Rick Wade. Rick has been on a tear, with no less than four records on black wax released in the last...
It's amusing to see the flavors-of-the-month rise and fall - no names, but seven publicists on retainer can only get you so far for so long. I'm a jaded and petty enough man to relish the consequences of overexposure,...
In the early 1990s, Mystic Bill was one of the key figures in the emergence of the Chicago Rave Scene, introducing Chicago's homegrown House Music sound to a new generation. Now in his homebase of Miami, Bill & the...
And so we read the sad news this morning that Leroy "Sugarfoot" Bonner, frontman for the Ohio Players who inspired three generations of House, Hip Hop and Soul musicians, passed away over the weekend. An official family announcement indicates...
Insomniac, the promoters behind the Electric Daisy Carnival, have announced that their festival is expanding to Chicago - the same weekend traditionally set aside by Midwest promoters for Movement (formerly and still widely known as the Detroit Electronic Music...
The music never stops and it never should. Volume 164 of 5 Magazine's New Mix Monday weekly guest mix series is an exclusive mix from Chicago's Shazam Bangles. Mr. Bangles is part of Cutz on Cuts, The Boogie Munsters and...
Borrowed Identity is a new name to me, and given the implications of his or her alias I'm not entirely sure this isn't a hoax. Apparently this young fella has released a handful of records on vinyl with a...
We've featured a lot of people in our New Mix Monday series. Some are legends, some are local heroes, some are people just getting into the game. Our selection process is very much based on what we're feeling from...
Someone with fewer fried brain cells than I will have to answer the question of when Frankie Knuckles last had a residency in Chicago (it's certainly happened since the PowerPlant, hasn't it?) But he has one now. This Sunday, January...
It's appropriate that though we have the words of the ownership verbatim, I'm still not sure this isn't a hoax. Dope Jams, Paul Nickerson and Francis Englehardt's record store in Brooklyn that mixed black wax with voodoo incense, announced they...
Maybe the hardest working DJ in the scene, Jamie 3:26 is one of Chicago's true House Music soldiers. And thanks to the success of his original recordings, edits, remixes and a spinning style known for pleasing crowds, the world...
Color me amazed. New label Contemporary Scarecrow has planted a foot firmly in the scene by dragging several classic Boo Williams compositions out of the cobwebs and blending them with four brand new cuts. The re-issues got my attention,...
We go around but one time on this globe, and Jason Kriveloff, alias JKriv, appears to be one of those carpe diem types. As the bassist for Tortured Soul, JKriv brought dance music into venues where it typically had...
We almost lost Detroit. It's the title of a song, one of Gil Scott-Heron's best, but that phrase often comes to mind when I read another accidental obituary for the Motor City. Detroit's decline is also the subject matter for...
Johnny Fiasco can work the 303 like a motherfucker and has probably released more great acid tracks in the last decade-plus than anybody. That's not his reputation - I'm not going to guess why, since trying to figure out...
It's pop. That's all. But with a four word sample from Aretha and music that seems to have been conjured rather than created, Crazy P's "Heartbreaker" captured my soul. That's the power of music, what it can do when...
Blindfolded and the business end of a Glock to your head, you'd guess this is a Floorplan record. And if you've read any of last issue's interview with Robert Hood, you have an idea of how much of a...
