Huge Hephner "Jack N Coke"
Huge Hephner is the alias of producer Billy Dalessandro, co-founder of Siteholder Records and an artist frequently credited with merging the respective 4/4 worlds of Chicago and Europe. Dalessandro first used the name a year ago, when he released The Booty Drop EP on Siteholder's digital sub-label. Since then, he has curated his first vinyl release, Pimp Slappin', as well as his debut full-length, Nymphotech. Despite the vaguely hip-hop-sounding titles of these releases, the Hugh Hephner style remains firmly rooted in house and techno, mixing the warm, upbeat vibes of Dalessandro's hometown Chicago with the dark, sinister sounds more commonly found across the ocean.
