Welcome to the future, or one iteration of it. Synesthesia is what they call the association between sight and sound and other sensations, and for most of us it's involuntary. But Chicago's Kate Simko and Jeffrey Weeter are working on...
Exclusive interview with Mark Farina on the incident at the Marquee Club in Las Vegas.
Carl Craig was three years old on June 21, 1972 - the day the lights went out at 2648 West Grand and Motown left the city that gave the label its name.
Talk about the great musical families that have come out of the Midwest, and the Burden Brothers (aka Octave One) are finally getting their proper acclaim
"Being from a primarily poor black city, people from Detroit hustle like no one else and can turn shit to sugar in a minute."
It's a cliché, but fitting for a Detroit artist, I want to say that Rick Wade is equal parts man and machine. I have no idea how he's capable of maintaining such a furious pace, with sterling releases on...
True story: last week, I was trying to find something in my iTunes rotation to please a group of run-of-the-mill indie rockers temporarily co-habitating. These are good people, but not exactly fans of electronic music and have little interest...
Alex Arnout: welcome to my list of people who can do no wrong. His name is there for a variety of reasons, but to be specific it's his Sound-Byte EP on Turquoise Blue and now his malevolently addictive remix...

Welcome to the new Digital Divide. If you buy, play or listen to nothing but MP3s and the new release section of Beatport is your conduit to the international dance scene, you may find yourself missing out on some...
In a time of universal mediocrity, an obsession with quality is a revolutionary act. A man of the same sentiment, Chez Damier, lit the fire in me with an introduction to the music of Italian producer, DJ, copious collector...

After several years in the wilderness, Four Play Music - one of Chicago's most diverse, most innovative and, it can now be said, most resilient labels - is back in a big way. On April 1st, Four Play is...
Where I Am Now is the debut LP from Chicago-based producer Area (aka m50) released on Francois K's Wave Music imprint. Featuring 12 tracks of pulsing, adventurous electronic music, of moody lows and exhilarating sounds burned into the ether,...
It's good he has no need for work - it would be hard, if not impossible, for Chicago House Music legend Ralphi Rosario to fit it all on a resumé. The youngest of the Hot Mix 5 DJs, Ralphi...
