~ MARC COTTERELL:
They say if you can't beat them, join them, and Marc Cotterell knew from the start that the golden era '90s house sound could not be beat. Holding its place as one of house music's most beloved periods, Marc happened to fall in love with the deeper house stylings of that decade in 1993. He's been climbing the ranks of the zeitgeist's most valuable players ever since with his productions, Plastik People label, and Djing as leverage. When influential icons like Kerri Chandler are knocking at your door to personally say how much they love and play your releases, surely you've done something right. Having the hit-making New Jersey vocalist Tears Of Velva featured on "For Those We Love" certainly didn't hurt. Plastik People's exclusive relationship handling the releases of another heralded artist is Playin' 4 The City only further solidifies the level Marc is operating at.
~ ED NINE: A rising star in the Chicago house scene and the head-honcho behind Groove Access Music, Ed Nine is focused solely on the hustle & the music and leaves the BS for others to get sidetracked by. With a growing catalog of original tracks & remixes, his recently released 'Timeless' EP on Groove Access Records has been getting rave reviews and chart action on Juno and other sites.
~ CZBOOGIE: A DJ machine and fixture at many events in Chicago, CZ utilizes her stellar ear for the music to blend that 90's/UK Garage sound with a fresh modern style that stands out in the scene. Her love for house music is undeniable and it's no surprise that she's the heart & soul behind 5 Magazine Chicago.
~ SPENCE (CHICAGO): The creator of Undergroundhouse.TV, Spence holds down a Saturday Midnight live broadcast residency on UK Garage legend Grant Nelson's London-based D3EP Radio Network and strives to represent the very best of classic to modern underground house every time he steps behind the decks.
