Podcast 126: Ghetto Division's Chicago Mix

Publish date:

When it came time to commission someone for the Chicago edition of our City Guide podcast series, we here at XLR8R spent weeks brainstorming and tossing around possible candidates, many of them legends in their own right. After all, we were talking about Chicago, the birthplace of house music. But then we received an email out of the blue from Ghetto Division, an energetic crew of young Windy City DJs and producers whose roll call includes founders Rob Threezy, Maddjazz, Charlie Glitch, and Rampage alongside newer members Lorenzo Vektor, D-51, MoonMan, M-Dok, Sigma, and Louie Cue. The guys were actually volunteering to tackle the Chicago podcast, promising to do justice to their city's rich house music history while also incorporating the newest Chicago sounds. We'd heard amazing things about Ghetto Division's Southside Shakedown parties, and their passion for their hometown and the podcast was convincing to say the least, so we took a bit of a risk and handed it over to them. And boy, did they deliver—this mix is MASSIVE, covering 90 tracks in fewer than 70 minutes and running the gamut from acid house classics and Chicago legends like Cajmere, Fast Eddie, and DJ Funk (to name a few) to the newer, bassier, and occasionally Latin-flavored sounds of the crew's own productions. If this is the future of Chicago, the city has nothing to worry about.
