UMS EPISODE 62 CHICAGO HOUSE EXPERIENCE
Matt Zilla caught the House music bug in 1983 when he first heard WBMX’s “Hot Mix 5” and took his musical curiosity a step further in the club life of Chicago. With his unique twist of style and dress, Zilla and his friends started a “club-kid” culture before New York knew what a club-kid was. His style of music and dance was highly sought after by dance groups such as: The Ambassadors and Ecstasy, but he decided to start his own group: Generation 2000 (G2000) with his friend Clint. Generation 2000 gained local recognition in clubs and became a staple of Lil Louis’ parties at Medusa’s and the Bismarck Hotel. Lil Louis, Larry Heard, DJ Rush, Glenn Underground and Matt Hughes (Chicago) are major inspirations to Matt Zilla’s music.
It all started with his birthday party and a DJ plus a few words “Can I do that?” Since then DJ Snooze has been DJing from one local party to another, then state to state and also being heard from country to country. He has also produced/co-produced many up and coming artists like Enoch Raavi and V Hollywood. He is currently working on his own production with Soul Elevation Music.
As a DJ/producer,Dizzle continues to exploit her raw musical talents and ever-expanding skills. Inspired by techno artist Basshunter and Chicago acid house pioneer Adonis, her signature sound highlights searing synth leads geared to satisfy even the most discerning listeners. Her ability to deliver a blend of techno-house and electro-dance allows her to adapt her sounds to any venue setting whether it is underground or commercial.
Missing Link is an aspiring singer and DJ who has a passion for creating music. Born and raised in Chicago, Missing Link’s heart pumps to the rhythm of house music. He has been following the Chicago House music scene since 1983 and is influenced by the elements from its past.
