Lots of good people playing good music in the same room.
That tagline can be applied to most editions of I Heart Techno, DJ Microdot’s techno residency at Exit, but it’s a bit more than that as Microdot and Lionel6 share the decks with a pair of 5 Mag faves.
DJ Psycho is Dezi Magby – the greatly beloved DJ and producer and registered madman behind the turntables. 5 Mag had him on the cover in 2015 following an appearance at the Chicago vs Detroit Boiler Room event series, and he spoke of his love of both cities:
Chicago has a very special place in my heart, because of the music, the history, the people and especially the food. Y’all got it goin’ on there. I spent most of the Boiler Room event in a “Chicago House” T-shirt with the Bulls logo, but kept my Detroit hat on. A lot of people respected that and even took pictures with me. I love y’all.
Joining DJ Psycho is Roman Zawodny, the behind-the-scenes but by-no-means silent proprietor of acclaimed techno label UKR. We interviewed Roman about UKR’s history, aesthetic and future last year:
You can hear these two special guests with the man Microdot and Lionel6 on Saturday May 11th 2019 at the next installment of I Heart Techno at Exit (1315 W. North Ave, Chicago). Get in before 1am and it’s $5.
