Motown released twenty #1 singles during the 1960s. Freed by the digital marketplace from having to package, market or even pay for releases, today's Berry Gordys hold on to the notion that a guy in his boxers with a...
The hype ain't daftpunkian yet, but Cajmere (aka Green Velvet) just leaked details of the tracks and collaborators on his forthcoming album, Too Underground For The Main Stage. The album will feature 10 new tracks, 9 "bonus" classic tracks (new...
I don't always agree with Franck Roger's pronunciamentos about the state of dance music, but at least he's approaching the debate with some honesty. Start a thread on Facebook with the question "What's wrong with the scene?" and you'll...
Tim Zawada's popular edit series makes it's debut on vinyl with an eclectic selection of R&B, boogie and pop from the previous 30 years. Since a couple of the artists on here keep a pack of lawyers fattened on...
In the movie A Pure Formality, the reclusive writer Onoff dismisses interviews as an exercise in which "a man asks questions he already knows the answers to, for the pleasure of hearing you repeat it." You get a chance to...
Let no one complain now that the local entries on the festival circuit overlook Chicago's unparalleled House Music roots. Wavefront Beachside Music Festival - the newest Chicago dance music festival in an increasingly crowded schedule - released the "second wave"...
Of all the self-declared archivists sifting through the silt and sand of classic Deep House, Danse Club established itself right quick with several cuts remixed and reissued with a degree of respect you'll never see from dance music's fallen...
Split EPs are an endangered species - a victim of The Great Unbundling that began with dubplates, test presses and short runs and devoured them one-by-one like a horde of locusts. Whether it's for reasons of art or economy,...

http://youtu.be/i0rGtSbdGY4   A good deal of the concern - lawsuits, even - about safety at concerts is aimed at protecting the audience. In Chicago, the E2 club tragedy ten years ago is STILL a lightning rod for all manner of regulation...
I've had nothing but good things to say about this label and everyone involved in it. This is more of the same. In an era in which everyone looks out for themselves and appears mercilessly satisfied by this arrangement,...
In an expanded edition of Man & Machine, we talk to James Curd of Greenskeepers fame. Formerly of Chicago, James takes us into his new studio in Australia, walks us through a collaboration with Morgan Phalen, shares some of...
I've spent too much time writing obituaries lately, and it's a fucking drag. Year by year, the number of living legends from the Disco Era grows smaller, and we're losing a lot of heroes our own age or younger...
The boys from Tortured Soul are back in town at The Shrine tonight. You knew that. What you didn't know is that the show will be streamed live starting at 11:30pm Chicago time at theshrinechicago.com. FYI, for those who can...
