Chicago house in the house.
Born in southern Chicago, birthplace of the most energetic and hedonistic House music, Jamie 3:26 has earned the recognition of the world’s dance music scene over his long and fruitful career. His sets are full of the best and most selective black music from the past 50 years, vibrating with organic and rhythmic Funk, sensual Disco, and hypnotic House.
His work as a producer began in 2008 with a outstanding series of edits for Partehardy Records, and continued as the remixer of names like Jungle Wonz, Chip E, and Marcellus Pittmann, who confirmed his natural intelligence and predisposition for studio work.
2011 was a major year for Jamie; the release of Acid Whump for StrobeLight Records – an orgy of 303 bass, provocative fury, and underground House – increased his presence in the music scene.
Since then, Jamie combines personal productions and edits with incessant activity behind the turntables that keeps him in constant movement through the best black music clubs on the planet, carrying with him the spirit of the Windy City, which gives equal importance to selection and technique.
A central character that will visit berlinClub for the first time, and is sure to please even the most demanding palates.
