Chicago House pioneers Virgo Four (Trax Records/ Rush Hour Recordings) are one of the only live acts from the second generation of Chicago house artists. Virgo Four became wrapped up in the burgeoning house scene of their city in the mid-80s. They were both regulars on the infamous Chicago high school party scene, where packed school halls were filled with the sounds of local DJs such as the Hot Mix Five. From the school on to the club, they frequented Ron Hardy’s Muzic Box and started producing music themselves. Over 20 years later Amsterdam’s Rush Hour crew released the seminal re-issue compilation Resurrection, unearthing no less than 30 original Virgo Four tracks, getting the pair the attention they deserve. Virgo Four‘s cuts on Rush Hour reconquered the house heads in the exact same way, notably with the Caribou remix of their It’s A Crime track. Now, Eric and new recruit Terry Ivy are continuing the legacy without missing a step. We also welcome to the House of Waxx decks Sakro,  representing the new wave Mexican house scene, and who tonight teams up with his friend Miguel Puente. Two years after Sakro’s “Lemonade EP” the duo present a joint turntable experience to heighten the summer groove. Miguel Puente has traveled the world with his talent, settling in Barcelona for 8 years, honing his style of a deep and raw mixture of classic and contemporary rhythms in which he constructs his own version of club music, all of this with a never-ending groove that makes even the more abstract and minimalistic styles come together in perfect fusion. An added delight is the slick and sophisticated house sounds of Frankfurt’s Robert Drewek, founder of Rawax: providing delicious sets of groovy house with techno impressions, he founded his own record distribution DBH Music in 2007 with Alex Bau and Jörg Henze. Today DBH is one of the most important record distributions for electronic music and the home of Rawax which had an amazing impact in the scene from day one.
