Recently saw Mark Farina’s Mushroom Jazz tour in Seattle’s Nectar Lounge.

 

As usual, he put up a fantastic set however in my opinion the openers of the night stole the show.

Year Anniversary of the passing of The Godfather of House Music – Frankie Knuckles.

This man is a legend. I’ve seen him play a few times in Chicago and man can he lay in down. His mixes flowed like water, his energy electrifying and damn could he make you dance. Celebrate his life and music by listening to a previously unreleased live set and studio mix complements of the BBC.

 

Hand curated music picks of Jan 2015

Attention House music heads of yesteryear and today. Feast your ears on the sounds that Boiler Room has compiled for our listening pleasure.

This site caught my eye by way of an ad for an upcoming show featuring some of my 80’s house heroes of Chicago. Gene Farris, Derrick Carter, Frankie Knuckles and Roy Davis Jr. Growing up in Minneapolis made for a short distance to pop down to Chicago and see these guys perform, which we did quite often.

Our weekly audio mix series where we call upon the most interesting artists/DJs/record labels and ask them to peer into the near future. How they take it from there is entirely open to interpretation.
