This particular combination should be more than fascinating, as it bridges both the first generation of House music’s foundation to the second wave that continued its strong legacy in Chicago.

On Friday November 11th as part of the Chicago Humanities Festival’s 27th annual Fallfest, they bring together Robert Williams (Warehouse and Music Box owner and the man credited for having brought Frankie Knuckles to Chicago), Techno and House Producer/DJ Green Velvet aka Cajmere and 5 Magazine Editor-in-Chief Czarina Mirani as moderator.
