From Loft to Warehouse: Chicago’s Second Wave & the Detroit Connection
The story is well versed, but in case you need a refresher – Chicago house music was created by innovative DJs and producers melding disco, Italo and beat tracks, mainly at black gay dance clubs. One record that’s emblematic of this second wave is the Symbols & Instruments‘ Mood EP on Kevin Saunderson’s Detroit label, KMS. This 1989 release was penned by three up-and-coming Chicago artists: Chris Nazuka, Derrick Carter, and Mark Farina, who would come to share a loft known as Red Nail.
