Here’s a preview of what’s inside the latest 5 Mag:

🔴 #CoverStory: Franck Roger is 44. The French deep house producer emerges from lockdown with an eclectic new album. Terry Matthew talks to Franck Roger on the rejuvenation of Real Tone, the demonology of Paris and more for his first ever 5 Mag interview.

🔴 #CoverMix: Ed Nine. One of Chicago’s finest, Ed Nine (Groove Access) takes over this issue’s cover mix.

🔴 Berlin, Interrupted. A new book by photographer Marie Staggat & writer Timo Stein shows the people & places of Berlin’s legendary nightlife scene under lockdown.

🔴 Acid Artifacts: The Legacy of Rockin’ House Records. Rodney Baker was a true original: an educator, a folklorist of electronic music and one of the most underrated Chicago House Producers in history.

🔴 SELECT: A Baker’s Half-Dozen. Six rarities from the Rockin’ House catalog.

🔴 When the Music’s Over. Harold Heath chronicles a DJ’s journey from obscurity to modest success — and what comes after the music stops.
