Franktronic mixes this week’s SLAPCAST, the Slap Jaxx Podcast techno mix series curated by Chicago’s Angel Alanis exclusively for 5 Magazine.

Franktronic says he’s a “Chicago lifer with an unoriginal story”:

He spent the ’90s like everyone else — buying mixtapes, DJing in his bedroom, and dancing at basement parties. But one night, in one of those very basements, he heard a new sound that would change his life. A sound that, he would later find out, was called Techno. He now devotes his life to bringing the gospels to the people of his home towm. The gospels of Hood and Mills; of Surgeon and Clarke; of Ruskin and Broom; of Flores and Liebing. Yea, the great gospels of our time.
