Happy New Year!
We're happy to present a family affair for our first REFRACT of the year, with our special guests DJ FORM and JUSTIN REED ready to rocksteady...
DJ FORM, besides being one of Chicago's most hustling/in-demand DJs, is perhaps best known as half of hip-hop duo Pseudo Slang, or even for his previous stint in beloved lounge/electronica/acid jazz act the Baldwin Brothers. What is perhaps less known, is Form's affinity for dance floor beats and underground 4/4 goodness. Always on the decks with an infectious smile and energy, we're excited to have DJ Form rockin a prime set for the dance floor!
Meanwhile, our other guest JUSTIN REED has been a staple around the Chicago underground for years. His long-established illmeasures crew has held numerous residencies and loft parties around the city-hosting the likes of Stewart Walker, Dave Aju and J.Phlip to name a few-and his involvement with the infamous Freakeasy crew has taken Chicago's underground to a whole new level. Reed has also been spotted as a regular opening and closing the Chicago Symphony Orchestra's MusicNow series with heady DJ sets. Always somewhere between soulful and techy, we're excited to welcome Justin's skills, range and musical vision to our decks...
Per usual, your Refract residents Merrick Brown and Duke Shin will also be on hand with deck support... c'mon out! K.I.R.L.K.
