I'm the Managing Editor of 5 Magazine. You can reach me by email or at @terry5mag.
There's a story behind every track, or at least the good ones. Welcome to our new music discovery feature, Listening Room, in which we share a stream of a new track and ask its creator about making it. Kicking it off...
For Christ's sake, you spoil us. Traxx Underground follows up on releases from Samann and Victor Simonelli (highly praised here) with yet another smash. Back In 20 Minutes is a new four track EP from another young genius, Orazio Fantini,...
Well okay, Hakim: the Chicago producer (and former contributor to this space) Hakim Murphy has been travelling the world this year, both solo and with Ike Release as part of Innerspace Halflife. Following his exploits from afar, I'm not...
Trevor Lamont (Grand Reserve) mixes Volume 188 of New Mix Monday, 5 Magazine's weekly House Music guest mix series. I did the math, and I realized I've been listening to and dancing to sets from him for, I think, the...
Chicago's Sadie Woods (White Label/WNUR) mixes Volume 187 of New Mix Monday, 5 Magazine's weekly House Music guest mix series. Sadie Woods is an independent curator and DJ. The Chicago native has played alongside DJs including Alex from Tokyo, Ame,...
I've missed a few releases from this Chicago label but I don't think anything could have held me back from this one. Enthusiasm? Try lust: two tracks of lustrous, melodic techno (or techy house if you swing that way)...
Charles Webster, where had you gone? I had incredibly high expectations for this release; Webster, in seven minutes and nine seconds, blew me away. The "Charles Webster 1" remix of "We Are the Lonely" is more grandiose than any ostensibly...
Beatport has announced that they will begin selling "sponsored" banner positions on their homepage for prices starting at $2000. The program, called Beatport Amplify, was announced during the Amsterdam Dance Event but hasn't been widely reported prior. The figures originally appeared...
It's impossible to trivialize the impact of The Tracks Are Alive, Dave Pezzner's 2010 album on Freerange Records. A key catalyst in pushing Deep House back to the top of the underground music scene, Tracks also turned Dave into...
There's much to love about Giorgio Luceri's warm 12" on the London-based Fly By Night Music. Luceri is still a pretty young guy, but already has a solid LP and a spectacular EP on Chicago's Mathematics run by Jamal...
The first thing you noticed were the words "Chicago" and "Detroit" becoming adjectives rather than nouns. A Chicago Sound, A Detroit Sound - you can find a hundred tracks released each day described as such. Then came the death of...
Kano: I'm Ready (Emergency Records) Dharma: Plastic Doll (System Music) Gaucho: Dance Forever (System Music) Pink Project: Disco Project (Zanza Records) Ask even a knowledgeable fan of that confusing but utterly exhilarating era of early '80s dance music about one Mr. Stefano Pulga and they might not...
I like to imagine that there's a single apartment block in Paris where people like Brawther, Jef K., Jeremy Underground Paris and Kool Vibe live, work and carry on like actors in an underground reality TV show. Which is...
Years ago, I knew this crazy Serbian poet/philosopher. With his flowing beard and hair and world-weary grimace, give him about ten years and a few more misfortunes and he'd look like Zeus. He showed me several books he had...
Every month 5 Magazine's Man+Machine features talks about musical machines and the men & women who love them. This month, ahead of his date headlining 5 Magazine's Eight Year Anniversary Party, we talked about the production process with dance music...
'It's definitely not a throwback record,' Colette says of When the Music's Loud, the long-awaited album released in late August on her Candy Talk label. This much is clear: at a time when everyone is trying to sound like...
Giorgio Luceri is from Italy. He makes fantastic tracks. And these two statements - lately at least - appear to be completely redundant. I first heard about Giorgio Luceri from Mathematics, Jamal Moss' Chicago label, which released his EP Eternamente...
Beating up on David Guetta at this point is about as fun as slapping around a middle aged accountant in a leather mask and gimp suit: it's not really that satisfying and you get the creepy feeling that the...
Four thousand, five hundred and twenty eight miles from Chicago - in Milan, Italy, the town he grew up in and which he still lives in today - Roberto Corinaldesi found himself at a loss for words. It was 1993,...
5 Magazine risks becoming, in essence, Rick Wade Monthly, but I can't pass on a good record because an artist is on a roll. And Rick Wade is on a fucking roll - at least 20 tunes that I've...
