House Music In Chicago

If you’ve been following the videos and such I’ve posted here over the years, you probably picked up that I’m a fan of house music, among other genres. The Sun-Times recently pointed me at a recently discovered documentary about the Chicago house scene from 1986. Only 12 minutes long, it was shot at the grand opening of a new club owned by Frankie Knuckles. Knuckles passed away on March 31st of this year. If the video doesn’t display, click here.

    HOUSE MUSIC ALL NIGHT LONG!

    I love house and its Detroit sister, techno. I used to think house and/or techno would put Chicago or Detroit in the mainstream pop music scene, a la East Coast or West Coast hip hop, but it never happened. Today’s EDM in the top 40 is similar, but just not house.
