Exclusive: This is Volume Six of Cajmere's Funky Fresh for 5, our most popular mix series appearing monthly in this space exclusively for 5chicago.com. Cajual has been killing it lately, with something close to a half dozen releases in the...
Back in the early 1990s, a young fella named Jump "Chico" Slamm banged out one of the early releases on the soon-to-be juggernaut known as Cajual Records. The Slamm Project is best known for the B-side track "Feel Free",...
Our man in Switzerland, Jamie Lewis, is celebrating the release of his new album Purpleized. In Purple Music fashion, the release contains one unmixed and DJ friendly CD along with a vinyl edition, and features collaborations with something like...
Now this is not your usual free download - the "track nobody wanted to sign and I don't feel like improving" or, my personal favorite, the "additional remix that sucked too bad to sell". Alexander Robotnick has released a...
Detroit's Rick Wilhite, wants to know what you see, makes an appearance in Chicago tonight, a cool Wednesday night at Scotty Brandon and Michael Serafini's Rhythmatic residency at SmartBar (3730 N. Clark Street, 10pm-4am). Rick recently put together this...
It's real, and it's fabulous. Scott K of BOXMUSIC and We Own The Night is parting with what is likely (I mean, Guinness doesn't keep track of these things) the largest disco ball in the United States, if not the...
It was one year ago yesterday that we heard the news that Darryl Pandy passed away. The question arises - and it's a terrible question indeed - of how you remember someone after they're gone. In the case of Darryl...

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...
Mix from Brazil's Alistair Gillespie for 5 Magazine's New Mix Monday series, circa 2012.
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...
Reading about two artists forming a new label in 2012 is about as exciting as watching cardboard age. As an example, in the 31 days of March, I received no less than five Kickstarter fundraising appeals for new labels....
It's 31 degrees in Chicago and some motherfucker is going on about Ibiza. Forty nine people were shot this weekend and if it's all the same to you, I don't want to pretend that this is okay, that we...
