Nick Street, Dean Bell, Glenn Meehan & Andy Senior
We have got to firstly, say thank you to all those people who made the effort for the 2nd party of Sunday Social with Groove Assassin. He truly played a blinding set from soulful house to disco down at the small and intimate venue of bar 137 and is all round Mr.Nice Guy................. and yes we did have another late night and still made work on the Monday!!!!!
As we are on the roll with some big name kats within the ...music industry from New York's John Morales to Sheffield's Groove Assassin, we have secured the services from Chicago's Disco dude DJ Rahaan -
Rahaan has been dropping disco and funky house beats to retro music heads since the 80’s when he and his friends use to dance at the best house parties in Chicago – Rahaan’s home state and most importantly, the place which gave birth to House music.
Playing at house parties in Chicago obviously done Rahaan some good, as he is now a successful DJ and music producer in his own right. He recently released Rahaan Edits Vol. 1 and 2 in 2008/9 on Stillove4music record label as well as putting out some remixes on the KAT record label.
The thing about Rahaan is that he defiantly knows his art, and it is his outstanding skill behind the decks that has brought him from the Chicago underground circuit out onto the international playing field of Japan, Australia, Amsterdam, Spain, Ireland, Scotland, England, throughout America.
But before Rahaan made his presence on the global dance floor, Rahaan was playing his music from his cassette tapes with his dance crew called the Chuck Brothers. He then moved to the state of Wisconsin whereby he started to grow a serious collection of disco and house records. In 1996 Rahaan moved back to Chicago started hanging out with his old friends, forming the reunion of the Chuck Brothers once again.
During the 90’s Rahaan was building up his reputation as one of Chicago’s finest Disco/House DJ, playing at a hot club called “The Spot” and the infamous loft parties with Mr.Bill, Pee Wee and friends. This opened the door for Rahaan to perform on guest spots for Sisterz of Vision and Soul In The Hole club nights, followed by a residency “Budda Lounge” – one of Chicago’s best nightclubs.
In the year 2000 Rahaan started producing tracks for his own personal collection but this soon gained him the attention of Fourplay records who signed him up straight away. His first major track releases on this label were ‘Coming Hard’ and “No Time for Love.”
Since then, Rahaan has released numerous mixes on various websites such as Deep House and Bring The Heat, which gained him attention from other record labels and music lovers across the world. His performances have included the Southport Weekender, Northern Soul and Bring The Heat parties, which you can view on the website.
In between touring Rahaan is busy producing soulful disco and house music for Australian singer Christine Eva and Atlanta based singer/songwriter Ozara Ode’. It is fair to say that Rahaan is well and truly on his way to accomplishing bigger and better things for the year ahead.
Last year alone Rahaan has dj'ed from Japan, USA, Germany, Holland, France, UK and just in demand dj.
So us lot at Sunday Social have given you plenty of time to either book a full or half day off work and come and join us down at Bar 137 for Chicago's DJ Rahaan's debut to Blackpool's shorelines.......
Hope to see you lot on the dance floor and come check out the homely vibes of Sunday Social...
Lots of xxxxx
