What’s inside Issue #139?

On The Cover

Jerome Baker: A Chicago Story. I first heard the name “DJ Boris” in the mid-1990s, spinning at a clothing store on Archer that sold phat pants to ravers by the bale. And I was already late: DJ Boris, aka Jerome Baker, had been setting turntables alight for years by that point, and would continue until his mysterious departure from the industry in the early ’00s.

Today, backed by Gene Farris, DVS1 and a whole host of lifelong friends, Jerome Baker is back on the scene and releasing some of the best House and Techno records you can find. How he got back here, though, is a long story – and a quintessentially Chicago story.
