Inside Ontourage nightclub, some of Chicago’s most lauded house-music DJs and performers mix up a soundtrack of pulsating beats to commemorate the end of 2012. Fast Eddie, credited for creating the local sound that he dubbed “hiphouse,” lays down his signature mixture of house-tempo beats and retro hip-hop. Infectious hit “Yo, Yo, Get Funky” thumps with upbeat bass lines, and tunes such as “Acid Thunder” and “Booty Call” incite partygoers to shake their hips in celebration of Alexander Graham Bell. Following in his quick-moving footsteps, White Knight spins head-bobbing hiphouse tunes, sampling Fast Eddie himself in his frenetic “Hip House Mega Mix.”
Veteran DJ and original member of Hot Mix 5, a seminal Chicago DJ crew, Kenny “Jammin” Jason illuminates the booth with his dizzying cache of old-school hits. DJ L-Genius also shares the festive billing alongside sonic specialists Tim Spinnin’ Schommer, Carlos Spinnin Rodriguez, Mario “Smokin” Diaz, and Martin “Boogieman” Luna.
