We’re going back to Smartbar on June 4 with special guest from the UK, Dance System.

Coming Saturday, June 4, 5 Mag presents a special Chicago event with Dance System alongside Czboogie and Duke Shin.

Dance System is James Connolly, fka L-Vis 1990 and co-founder of Night Slugs and now System Records. After the first Night Slugs party in a South London ex-squat in the early ’10s, Connolly toured internationally as L-Vis 1990 before launching his Dance System alias in 2014.

On April 1, Dance System revealed his debut album, In Your System:

“With In Your System, I really wanted it to make a record strictly for the clubs that shows the depth of what I play as a DJ. It follows on from the end of my collaborative mixtape ‘Where’s The Party At?’, where things were getting a bit darker and twisted. I experimented a lot with new sampling techniques using my Akai 2600 sampler and using filters as an instrument. I definitely let the dark side of Dance System come out a lot more than what people might know me for, as I feel it matches the crazy times we are living in. At the end of the day though, it’s all house music – it’s made to make your body move, have fun and provide a little respite from our current situation.”
