An exclusive mix from Chicago House Music legend Johnny Fiasco marks Volume 184 of New Mix Monday, 5 Magazine’s weekly House Music guest mix series.
To say I’m thrilled about this mix is an extreme understatement. Johnny Fiasco (Defected/MN2S/Om/Klassik Fiasco) is one of my personal heroes, not least of all for the way he’s remained true to his inspiration and kept pushing his sound come hell or high water…
We’ve interviewed Johnny Fiasco a few times now over the last 8 years (most recently in March 2013 for our Man & Machine series). I assume you know the story. But if you don’t:
Growing up on Chicago’s South side, Fiasco’s beginnings can be found at the famous club Shelter. He began pushing the boundaries as one of the pioneers of house music side by side Mark Farina at Smartbar, Lizard Lounge and the infamous Club Naked.
Today, Fiasco is one of electronic music’s top producers and remixers. His reputation as a producer has landed him work with labels such as Sony, Jive, Epic, Warner Bros, and indies such as Defected, Om Records, and Universal UK. His vast catalog includes work with artists such as Kaskade, Owl City, Donna Blakely, Bob Sinclair, DJ Sneak and many more.
