‘Three Decades of House Music Tribute Mix Series’ ~ Mr. Fabulous-DJ FM

I first met Juan Roman aka Mr. Fabulous-DJ FM when I was invited to guest DJ on DJ 4EVER‘s long-running streaming video show Chitownvibes.com.

Mr. Fabulous-DJ FM

Though I had never met him before, I had been a fan of his mixes on WCRX 88.1 FM‘s long running underground music show “Masters In The Mix“.   To my ears, the 30 minute WCRX mixes put together by Mr. Fabulous-DJ FM are total ear-candy, a high-energy blend of old skool cuts that make you say “Mannn I haven’t heard THAT in a long time!“, raw tunes with 808 & 909 drum machine beats, classic soulful/vocal/club house tracks, and of course the tastiest latin house tunes you can imagine.

So after my guest set on Chitownvibes, I maintained contact with DJ 4EVER via our mutual connection as resident DJs on the ‘Masters In The Mix‘ show.  Eventually 4EVER and I agreed to collaborate by having his long-running show simulcast on my upstart new streaming video station, Undergroundhouse.tv.  As luck would have it, it turned out that DJ FM was 4EVER‘s co-host on the show, meaning that Undergroundhouse.tv had the pleasure of watching DJ FM mixing live on our station every Saturday afternoon 1-4pm CST (DJ FM usually gets on the decks for the last hour).  Which leads me to this….

If there is one cat in Chicago who has a deep respect for the legacy of those who came before and blazed pathways, understands who the original producers were and what tracks they created that contributed to the evolution of this music we love so much, this music we call HOUSE…. one cat who can present it all in one package with so much energy, passion, style and love that you just can’t resist it…. that mixologist would be Mr. Fabulous-DJ FM.

So let me share something with you that, if you call yourself a HouseHead, you are going to fucking LOVE:  The first 2 releases in the multi-part ‘Three Decades of House Music Tribute Mix Series‘ mixed by Mr. Fabulous-DJ FM.  These free mixes are not just an amazing compilation of the ‘history of house music’, but as enjoyable to listen to as they are educational.  ENJOY!!!!  ~ DJ SPENCE:CHICAGO

FEATURED ~ SOULMAN T

DJ SPENCE:CHICAGO:

“I first heard the incredible sounds of up-and-coming UK Producer Sweeney ‘Soulman T’ about 2 years ago, when fellow Chicago-area DJ Kelvin ‘DJ KELVINTHE1’ Anderson opened up one of his podcast mixes with “The Way Its Gotta Be (Original Mix)”.   It was as if somebody grabbed me by my heart & soul and demanded my full attention.  What I was hearing was a powerful slice of old-skool-meets-modern-vibe underground house… 8 heavenly minutes of a classic-sounding melodic build infused with a minimalistic sensibility and carried along by a relentless driving kick and a drum kit that doesn’t make it full presence known until a good 3:04 into the damn track!  I instantly contacted Kelvin and asked (more like demanded) him to ID the track for me, fully expecting to be given the run-around for requesting what must have been one of his most treasured silver bullets.

     Kel’s not only graciously ID’d the track for me, but also offered to put me in touch with the man who created this incredible music!  Hell yeah!  Soulman turned out to be a super cool, humble, accessible (but known to disappear off the radar from time-to-time) and TRUE underground house cat to his core.  I began to play many of his tracks in my mixes, and more than a few times I had excited house DJ’s from all over the world contacting me (“That song is “I See How It Is (Sanna Virus Mix)”!!!…  Do you know Soulman T???…  Can you get that track for me???”).  I’ve been a super-fan ever since that day I heard “The Way Its Gotta Be (Original Mix)”….. now it’s time to share the knowledge…….” Continue reading

FEATURED ~ DJ SPENCE:CHICAGO 9/13/11 Live Set

DJ SPENCE:CHICAGO

If you like your live house music sets to be a blend of the old and the new, delivered with high-intensity & passion, while combining the very best of multiple genres during a tequila-fueled full-frontal assault in beast-mode, then you just might like DJ SPENCE:CHICAGO.   He was one of the first online DJ’s streaming live that began to push the advantages of the visual medium of video by experimenting with multiple camera angles, lighting effects, interesting backgrounds, visual software effects, and a front-on camera view.  When Spence started casting his show in 2009, the overwhelming majority of online DJ’s were either streaming audio-only, or using the same static camera angle for video:  from-the-side OR hands-on-mixer-only.  These shows were generally poorly-framed and usually included a hamper full of dirty clothes on the floor and visible in the shot, in a room with all the lights on.  Since he began posting his video sets online, Spence has adamantly committed himself to a personal ethos of publishing full set-lists in order to encourage others to support the producers of the music he plays. Here is something we think is definitely worth checking out:  DJ SPENCE:CHICAGO Live 9/13/11 

Watch DJ SPENCE:CHICAGO streaming live every other Tuesday evening @ 5-7pm PST/7-9pm CST/8-10pm EST/23-01:00 Brazil/1-3am UK on www.undergroundhouse.tv
