'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...

Updated Apr 13 2015: The phenomenally popular Chicago Service was just repressed. As much as anyone on the outside knows, Marcel Vogel is doing most of this business himself - making songs, DJing parties, and incidentally running the best Chicago...
Every month 5 Magazine's Man+Machine features talks about musical machines and the men & women who love them. This month, we're going in a little different direction. Meet (if you don't already know him) Todd Mariana. Todd is a DJ, a...
DETROIT - born and raised and residing in - that's the first and the second and the last thing you need to know about Rick Wilhite. The music says the rest, decades of accumulated knowledge unwinding from DJ sets...
Out of print and fetching upwards of fifty bucks a copy, this four track collection of remixes from French supremo Brawther received a limited 12" reissue in May... and promptly went out of print again. For the record: this...
"It's the thing with Derrick being in Chicago and me being in London and traveling the world and meeting assorted weirdos along the way. There's this spider web of the Classic misfit family that seems to create itself." That's a...
Marcel Vogel (Lumberjacks in Hell, Intimate Friends) mixes volume 179 of New Mix Monday, 5 Magazine's weekly House Music guest mix series. Marcel Vogel describes himself as a "bearded lumberjack from rural Germany chopping soulful tunes as a profession". Many...
There's something to be said for longevity in this business. I don't know if it's the ultimate proving ground for a DJ's sound, but it's certainly one criteria - it's hard to think of a DJ sticking around for...
Some of the best Chicago House Music of the '90s was released on what have essentially become "ghost labels", existing in some limbo between a lost youth and legal opportunism (watch, for instance, the flood of Romanthony "tributes" that...
Well damn, I wasn't expecting disco from Johnny Fiasco, but disco is what you get in a single that looks back to the big chorus of a 1980 hit by Mystic Merlin. After listening for a couple of minutes,...
In which we get to know Garrett David, resident DJ at Queen! every Sunday at SmartBar. The twenty-two year old wunderkind has just released what may be the best slab of wax cut by a Chicago label this year...
This is an interesting project from a new label out of Denver called The Playground: vinyl only, limited edition and (I think) hand-stamped, with a run limited to 200. I suspect they'll be hard pressed to hold to the...
This is a neat limited release package: a 200 issue pressing of a pair of brilliant remixes from Andy Vaz's Straight Vacationing LP. Patrice Scott's remix is stunning: it opens with a fuzzy 303 cloud pierced by stunningly sharp...
This is being billed as "some of Kon's first original House productions". That might be technically true, and you might be able to go into a court of law and plead that with your belly up to the bench,...
Yikes, I had no idea this was Victor Simonelli when I first heard it - actually, not an inkling until getting ready to write this up. NY's Finest is one of Simonelli's many aliases (most well-worn from the seven...
