“In the beginning, there was Jack…and Jack had a groove….”

If you were lucky enough to grow up in Chicago in the 80s and 90s, it meant experiencing the cultural revolution in music that at the time, was unprecedented – the birth of House Music

Not too far off in the neighboring Midwest city of Detroit, another musical shift began in the basements of three friends with the beginning of Techno – an almost mistake in the making as with the likes of George Clinton and Kraftwerk.

Respectively, both cities and genres would define a whole generation that would in turn, be the catalyst for what we now know today as Dance Music. To celebrate Dance Music and every genre, sub-genre, and so forth means celebrating in one of the motherships of dance culture – Chicago.
