Chicago has shaped the dance music industry for decades, some of the most famous house and techno talent emerged from the city. Without Chicago house, there would be no dance music. From the early days of dance music, Chicago was one of the first cities to experience the global phenomenon. The lineup would not be complete without its house music architects such as Derrick Carter. His sets are rooted in-house, but he freely travels outside club tastes, seamlessly incorporating old-school disco, soul, jazz, and whatever catches his fancy. The bonafide house legend, Gene Farris has been molding the scene since the beginning. He's been pushing musical boundaries for close to three decades, from spinning at underground warehouse parties in the early 90s to working with the current crop of world-leading labels and artists.
