WHAT’S THE IDEA?
Basement Jaxx have a track called ‘Power to the People’ a Universal positive and empowering song about our interconnectedness. The lyrics express how when people come together, amazing things can happen.

Berlin: a city with so much influence in the electronic music domain of today. In this hub of art and music is Acid Pauli, a DJ and producer hailed globally for his out-of-the-box sets and productions. His sound is boundless and timeless, as he often treks down the road less traveled of experimental electronica. With ties to Nicolas Jaar’s Clown & Sunset and the famed Crosstown Rebels, Acid Pauli has continually impressed us here at Public Works.

We’re happy to invite him back this Friday, February 13. Click HERE for tickets!

Here we share an incredible ambient mix by Acid Pauli himself, ‘Layers’.

Ahead of this Saturday’s shindig — As You Like It featuring Robag Wruhme, Daniel Bell, The Black Madonna and more — 48 Hills, a local blog, gives us a full profile and interview of the Chicago DJ/producer The Black Madonna.

“Marea Stamper was born in Appalachian Kentucky, raised on rave (her first was at age 14), and all-in for dance music from the very beginning. In the past decade, she’s made her home in Chicago and become a supernova on the dance scene — rising to become the talent buyer at Smart Bar, the legendary 30+-year-old club, putting out a string of acclaimed records, and traveling the world with her unique blend of curveball beats. She’s always down to drop slow funk, leftfield electro, jazzy rants, lost disco, hypnotic Afrobeat, or even cutting edge techno bangers into her sets, her impeccable ear guiding everyone to a higher state.”

We heart Blond:ish. No, really, we do. The Canadian duo has come a long way since their weeklys at Cherry in Montreal back in 2007. It was there that Vivie Ann Bakos and Anstascia D’elene first established their chemistry. Fast forward to 2015 and the girls have records on a number of today’s most revered imprints — from Get Physical to Kompakt. Not to mention, the past few years have seen them land some of the most sought-after slots in notable clubs and festivals across the globe.

Something else that seems pretty obvious if you follow these girls through social media, is how much fun they seem to have — more than the average Joe at least. Ahead of their show right here at Public Works this Saturday, we compile seven photos prove the Blond:ish girls have more fun.

Our favorite party and record label named after a slushy iced drink is saying goodbye. After 5 years and 10 stellar releases of edgy, forward-thinking house and techno, the Icee Hot gang is calling it quits. Not for lack of interest or anything like that…According to Icee Hot founder and DJ Shawn Reynaldo (who also happens to be the editor of a little rag called XLR8R Magazine) … “This may sound simple, and even a bit cliche, but we’re ending Icee Hot simply because the time felt right to do so. Five years is a long time to be throwing a party every month, especially when we’ve also been doing … Read more ›
