Muzik Box - Episode 21

8:00pm - 9:00pm

For Black History Month, I put together a Chicago House special, with a selection of tunes that influenced the house sound, the originators that created the sound, and those that were inspired by the sound.

For more information on the house sound of Chicago, check out the Documentary "I Was There When House Took Over the World" Can be found on YouTube

And Check out the Series Everything House Music and More on YouTube, that interviews some of the pioneers of house music.

Please Note: DHS (Ben Stokes) was born and grew up in Chicago, I initially thought DHS was A European based artist as the record of House Of God I have is on a Belgium label. I included the track in the mix thinking it was inspired by the Chicago sound, plus it fitted nicely between the Green Velvet and Boo Williams tracks. Turns out after doing a bit of digging it is in fact made by a Chicagoian.
