Somewhere in your town - especially if your town is named Chicago - it's quite likely that at this very moment, a DJ is mixing into the sounds of Cajual right now
The hottest producer in the underground hasn't made a record in more than ten years. There's an old line that comes up in Hollywood that the most in-demand screenwriter of the moment is William Shakespeare - a man whose...
In a time of universal mediocrity, an obsession with quality is a revolutionary act. A man of the same sentiment, Chez Damier, lit the fire in me with an introduction to the music of Italian producer, DJ, copious collector...
Robotnick is at his eclectic best with this edition of his Archives series; each of the 3 tracks can be readily classified but trying to come up with an overall thread of continuity is a hopeless cause. For those...
Where I Am Now is the debut LP from Chicago-based producer Area (aka m50) released on Francois K's Wave Music imprint. Featuring 12 tracks of pulsing, adventurous electronic music, of moody lows and exhilarating sounds burned into the ether,...
It's good he has no need for work - it would be hard, if not impossible, for Chicago House Music legend Ralphi Rosario to fit it all on a resumé. The youngest of the Hot Mix 5 DJs, Ralphi...
Alex Arnout, late of Hot Creations and Crosstown Rebels, is throwing down thunderbolts from the high mountains on his Turquoise Blue imprint, and the label has reached some kind of apotheosis with the Sound-Byte EP. I mean that in...
Detroit producer Rick Wade has been a fixture of the Deep House scene since the early 1990s. Long considered an underground hero - one of those guys we call a "producer's producer" or a "DJ's DJ" - Rick's international...

At the tender age of 26, Deep House producer Steve Mill has an absolutely staggering number of releases out. He recently impressed the hell out of me with his full-length album Higher State Impressions and I just had to...
  Purple Music's Jamie Lewis on the label's new collaboration with pop star Prince and how the scrappy House Music indie from Switzerland scooped the world.   From what I understand, the very name of "Purple Music" is derived from Purple Rain....
  Getting to know San Francisco-based producer and Beretta Grey recording artist Christina Chatfield - on live PAs and performing, the Bay Area techno scene and the art of (not) DJing.   You're in San Francisco now, which much like Chicago is...

Matthew Kyle and his downtempo disco machine.
Getting to know UK producer Scott Diaz, who has come out of nowhere to release four smokin' hot EPs in the last four months
This week's featured mix set is from UK DJ and producer extraordinaire RIchard Earnshaw (Duffnote/Spiritchaser/One51/Guess/KMG). Long a favorite of 5 Mag and discriminating House Music fans worldwide, Richard has been on a remix tear lately, with highly acclaimed edits...
