In 2006, Samantha James scored a #1 Billboard hit with her debut single Rise. Four years later, the sensational vocalist has emerged with her follow-up album, Subsconscious - a deeply introspective journey bridging soul and electronic music, pop and...
No matter where your tastes in dance music lead you, you have to give it up for a work of painstaking musicianship, exquisite songwriting and genuine soul. Golden Lady is that type of album, and it doesn't hurt that...
5 Mag's Label Profile series is a new feature we're starting up this month, with curiously in-depth overviews of some of our favorite House Music labels. Recognizing that most labels (especially these days) are a labor of love of...
Update (28 Dec 2010 14:26:00) from Agency Sounds: Per Paul Johnson, permission must be obtained from Paul Johnson prior to hosting a benefit in his name or using his image. Please contact camille@agencysounds.com or robc@agencysounds.com in order to gain...
Alexander East is that rare renaissance man in this scene - spinning records, singing on them, a master of a half dozen different instruments (and probably more). Born in Brooklyn, he's done an amazing job in recent years representing...

Colette: On a High

The minute you hear the hook on Sonny Fodera's remix, you'll know too that "On a High" is gonna be a hit. Colette has never sounded better than she does on the second release from her Candy Talk label....
Chicago Underground is a new regular feature in 5 Magazine, in which we feature interiews with Chicago producers and give away a free download of one of their tracks so you can check out their sound for yourself! This...
Nine years have elapsed since the Community LP was released on NRK, and in the ensuing decade, Mazi (aka Audio Soul Project) has constructed an atomic bomb. Hip Shake Heartache isn't just the best LP I've been sent this...
The Commencement was the debut release from Artefact Records. Though released in mid-summer, it didn't receive nearly enough attention from DJs or the record-buying public as it should have. This is a simple four track EP - nothing terribly complicated...
New York City's Ian Friday is a modern-day troubadour - a poet, DJ, producer and - as rare as it gets in this era of churn-and-burn dance music singles - a songwriter par excellence.
Aaron's music is universal, and in a sense belongs to the world now, but will always, always, always be rooted in Detroit
Chicago Underground is a new regular feature in 5 Magazine, in which we'll be featuring Chicago producers and giving away a free download of one of their tracks so you can check out their sound for yourself! This month...
Spencer Kincy was at the top of his game in 1997 when he reached a peak of astonishing creativity, the likes of which had never and probably will never be seen again. In that year alone, Spencer released three...
Dimitri from Paris, dance music's foremost musicologist and the master of the compilation, returns with Get Down With the Philly Sound - a stunning collection and remix pack highlighting the sound of Philly International, Salsoul, Gamble & Huff and...
Newsflash! Ultra Naté isn't just the singer that has shaped House Music's sound with classic tracks like Free and the album Blue Notes in the Basement. She's also a promoter, impresario and one hell of a good DJ. Her...
It's a very fine line between "tribute" and "rip-off". The second song on this four track EP, "Stuff Like That", is a case in point. It's almost note-for-note, 100% derivative of Spencer Kincy's "Don't Stop" from the brilliant Tangled...
A banana was just a banana when Josh Wink (website, facebook, twitter) came on the scene in the late 1980s: one could drop Acid, Detroit Tracks, German Techno and Chicago House and obsess less about musical genres than about...
In February 2010, Nervous Records will be releasing Ananesworld, the new album from vocalist Anané (website, facebook, myspace, twitter, podomatic) and produced by her husband, Grammy Award winner Louie Vega. Effortlessly shifting from Deep House and Dance to Reggae,...
Electronic music, as we've lamented time and time again in these pages, is nowhere on the radio spectrum in Chicago. Outside of a record here and there, it hasn't been for years. And while we're stating the obvious, let's...
From Switzerland, Jamie Lewis has been rocking the tables and carrying the flag for House Music for more than 20 years.
