Of all the self-declared archivists sifting through the silt and sand of classic Deep House, Danse Club established itself right quick with several cuts remixed and reissued with a degree of respect you'll never see from dance music's fallen...
Split EPs are an endangered species - a victim of The Great Unbundling that began with dubplates, test presses and short runs and devoured them one-by-one like a horde of locusts. Whether it's for reasons of art or economy,...
I've had nothing but good things to say about this label and everyone involved in it. This is more of the same. In an era in which everyone looks out for themselves and appears mercilessly satisfied by this arrangement,...
In an expanded edition of Man & Machine, we talk to James Curd of Greenskeepers fame. Formerly of Chicago, James takes us into his new studio in Australia, walks us through a collaboration with Morgan Phalen, shares some of...
For 5 Magazine's new column focusing on machines and the men and women who love them, we go into the studio with Chicago's own Johnny Fiasco, who takes up the argument of analog vs. digital gear, DJing with wax,...
Fuck what the prelates have to say: many good things are coming out of Pittsburgh, the Nazareth of the Eastern Seaboard, and these guys are making almost all of it. "The Standard" is the stand-out track on Pittsburgh Track...
Sean Haley: Deep House DJ from Chicago. Need more? Okay: he's one half of Windimoto, a collaboration with Scorpeze founded in 2007, which released the full-length Sinister Beauty LP two years later and the gorgeous remix LP two years...
We first heard it from a Facebook post from Jellybean, and it looks like the news is true. Vincent Montana Jr, a producer, arranger, conductor, musician, founder of the Disco era Salsoul Orchestra and member of the MFSB rhythm...
It's been awhile since we've had an old school dis track. Last December, Brooklyn record shop Dope Jams published their annual blast, a "best of/worst of 2012" list with an emphasis decidedly on the worst. Among their targets was...
Fake views, fake plays, fake fans, fake followers and fake friends - the mainstream music industry has long been about "buzz" over achievement, fame over success, the mere appearance of being everyone's favorite artist over being the favorite artist...
5 Magazine meets with Chicago producer and Grammy nominated remixer E-Smoove, aka Eric Miller, and talk about his 400 credited remixes and multiple #1 hits, working at Steve Hurley's ID production house, "Freedom Train" (recently re-issued on Derrick Carter...
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...
