WHAT WE’VE BEEN UP TO (and why we haven’t been posting much):
SPENCE (UGHTV Founder): For the last 6 weeks I’ve spent every waking hour outside of my day job designing, programming, and bringing on-line my first website… from the ground up…. learning how to do it, as I was doing it. I had a little help from a few people when I ran into trouble with some coding, but the designing and building was done by myself.
I’m not a web developer, a programmer or a coder, and 6 weeks ago I only knew the bare basics about websites (and I’m still learning) … but I had an idea in my head of how I wanted this website to look and operate, and I dove into the deep end. To put even more pressure on myself, I set a deadline of the first week of May to have the website on-line, and I made that deadline public to the DJs on Undergroundhouse.tv.
Here it is… I’m still tweaking it, seeing what works and what doesn’t. I am also seeking writers interested in contributing to our new blog that is currently in development. This blog will be discontinued at some point down the road. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org for more details! I’m designing the Blog section now, and will be bringing a Store section online at some point. Have a look and also check out our resident talent on the new site: www.undergroundhouse.tv
CHICAGO AREA HOUSE-HEADS: Join us this Friday the 13th (our LUCKY number) as UNDERGROUNDHOUSE.TV takes over LOKal (1904 W. North Avenue, just east of the corner of Damen, North & Milwaukee).
The show starts at 10pm sharp as ChiTownVibes co-host MR. FABULOUS – DJ FM lights up the decks with his infectious house-dope, followed by a set dropped by multi-genre mixologist MYKE SHYTOWNE, then taking us home will be DJ MERO coming with new original releases and freshly returned from a successful WMC trip. As always, there is NO COVER. 21+ Be sure to ask Spencer or those associated with UGHTV for the special password which will allow all attendees of this event to get into OHM Nightclub for free (the old Red Dog spot @ 1958 W. North Avenue, open until 4am)
ATTENTION all DJs, Producers, Fans & Promoters on Facebook: Check out UNDERGROUND HOUSE MUSIC, a new open music group for true house heads …. visit the page, request to join and we’ll add you.. then be sure to invite your friends!
When it comes to ‘real’ House music… that primal shit… that underground stuff created not solely for the money but primarily to communicate to the hearts & souls of ‘those who know without needing to ask’…. CHICAGO HOUSE GANGSTA buries SWEDISH HOUSE MAFIA every damn time….. (some things are so obvious it pains me to feel that I even have to say it). Read the article about the DJ SNEAK/STEVE ANGELLO Twitter feud over on BIG SHOT and then check out the follow-up interview with SNEAK here
