Moppy is part of Cutz on Cuts, which airs every Wednesday from 4pm to 8pm Central time on Ustream. (We also featured Shazam Bangles, also from Cutz on Cuts, in our January 21 2013 New Mix Monday set.) You can...
They say that if you live long enough you'll write obituaries for all of your heroes. But this is getting to be an awful task. Big Shot Magazine is reporting (and two people I've spoken with have confirmed) that Scott...
We published a full interview with m50 (aka Area) last year, when he released his debut album Where I Am Now on Wave Music. So if you want the long story, you can go there. You can also check...
Lights burn out; hype fades away & becomes subject to ridicule; bottle rockets roar and then pop. But if you're looking for a guide to charting your way through the underground, Mike Huckaby wrote the blueprint. Thirteen years after Deep...
Traxx Underground's Samann from Italy chips in with this week's New Mix Monday set - volume 168 in our weekly guest mix series, published here new, every Monday. Born in 1990, Samann first came to our attention through his remix...
It was one of the strange paradoxes of the disco era that two of the giants - two of the people whose innovations were so breathtaking that you can segment music as it existed before them and how it...
For 5 Magazine's new column focusing on machines and the men and women who love them, we talk to The Analog Session's Ludus Pinsky - "musician, producer, maker of synthesizers". The synth-driven, largely improvisational "April" from The Analog Session...
It was once said about the Velvet Underground that while they never sold a million records, everyone who bought one went out and started their own band. The same applies to MK. It's not really valid to measure value...
You have to respect the cheek of a label that titles their very first release Classics 01. That's what Hold Youth, a French vinyl imprint overseen by Le Loup and Seuil, did, and if they get more records like...
With faceless artists making disposable tracks based on anonymous samples for a dishonest percentage of a pathetic gross, it's somehow appropriate that Beatport has a new owner who has declined comment and will probably continue to do so. According to...
If there is a Robert Johnson of Chicago House Music, it's James "Jack Rabbit" Martin. No one has ever claimed that Martin walked down to a crossroads and had his 303 caressed by the Devil's hands. He wasn't poisoned by...
This week, we're very proud to present an exclusive mix from Detroit Deep House master and Harmonie Park's own Rick Wade. Rick has been on a tear, with no less than four records on black wax released in the last...
It's amusing to see the flavors-of-the-month rise and fall - no names, but seven publicists on retainer can only get you so far for so long. I'm a jaded and petty enough man to relish the consequences of overexposure,...
In the early 1990s, Mystic Bill was one of the key figures in the emergence of the Chicago Rave Scene, introducing Chicago's homegrown House Music sound to a new generation. Now in his homebase of Miami, Bill & the...
And so we read the sad news this morning that Leroy "Sugarfoot" Bonner, frontman for the Ohio Players who inspired three generations of House, Hip Hop and Soul musicians, passed away over the weekend. An official family announcement indicates...
The music never stops and it never should. Volume 164 of 5 Magazine's New Mix Monday weekly guest mix series is an exclusive mix from Chicago's Shazam Bangles. Mr. Bangles is part of Cutz on Cuts, The Boogie Munsters and...
Borrowed Identity is a new name to me, and given the implications of his or her alias I'm not entirely sure this isn't a hoax. Apparently this young fella has released a handful of records on vinyl with a...
We've featured a lot of people in our New Mix Monday series. Some are legends, some are local heroes, some are people just getting into the game. Our selection process is very much based on what we're feeling from...
Maybe the hardest working DJ in the scene, Jamie 3:26 is one of Chicago's true House Music soldiers. And thanks to the success of his original recordings, edits, remixes and a spinning style known for pleasing crowds, the world...
Color me amazed. New label Contemporary Scarecrow has planted a foot firmly in the scene by dragging several classic Boo Williams compositions out of the cobwebs and blending them with four brand new cuts. The re-issues got my attention,...
