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...
This is the first installment of 5 Magazine's DJ Masters series, featuring interviews & companion mixes from influential and legendary figures whose contributions were crucial to the development of the American House Music scene. I first came to know of...
We have a lot of retrospectives, a lot of interviews, a lot of tributes and talismans of respect paid forward but not so many primary documents of the underground disco scene at its peak in New York City. They...
If you're going to use sample pack beats, you may as well go to the source. Both Rick Wade and, to the point of this piece, friend of 5 Mag Jeremy Sylvester have dropped collections in recent weeks and...
Some day the story of 20:20 Vision will be told. The back catalog of Ralph Lawson's seemingly immortal imprint is staggeringly vast, and unlike some zombie labels reanimated for "brand quality" (and to re-issue cheap digital downloads), 20:20 continues...
Danny Krivit, who played for his first dancefloor four years before I was born, is celebrating a number of milestones this month. In preparation for one of them, Nervous Records is releasing a new disc, Danny Krivit Celebrates A...
They say you can tell a lot about a person based upon what he does in a time of crisis. If that's also true of communities, it says a lot about House Music to observe the multitude of Fukushima,...
The best documentary about Chicago House Music is contained in a 5 minute segment of a film about a basketball player.   http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=esCHW1ylEHQ   Benji is a feature documentary from film making tandem Coodie and Chike which made its television debut a week...
