5 Mag welcomes Chicago DJ and producer Ed Nine for the third installment of SANCTIFY, our deep house podcast.
With SANCTIFY we wanted to get “back to basics — back to the fundamentals of deep house with the DJs who believe in the mysterious and awesome spiritual power of deep house music.”
One of Chicago’s finest: Ed Nine is a DJ, producer and remixer and one of our favorite artists in the city. The last few years have been kind, with international recognition thanks to a series of brilliant and well-received records on Jorge Caiado‘s Inner Balance (The Journey Vol 1 and Vol 2), Kai Alcé‘s NDATL (Deep Concentration), Plastik People (Keeps Me Dancing), Robsoul (All My Life with Kid Enigma), the compilation Tales From Chicago and remixes for Ron Trent (“Dancin’” on Headphoniq) and Roland Clark (“President’s House” on Street King).
His own Groove Access label is coming out with their first vinyl releases since 2016 with Dan Ryan & Ed Nine’s Distant Reality 12″ and the V/A Chicago Is Home featuring Chicago Skyway, Kid Enigma, Dan Ryan and Ed Nine. Both are forthcoming this summer along with a new record called “Let Me Be” on Midway Hustle.
