Coming up this Sunday, Jack, and his friend Funk return to Funk Yeah! FM with a special local guest DJ from Minneapolis… DJ XEL
Join us this Sunday as we celebrate America’s independence a little early by streaming us online or on your smart phone on Chicago House FM from 6pm – 8pm CST (11pm – 1am GMT)
DJ XEL is no stranger to electronic dance culture. This native Chicagoan started mixing old-skool funk and soul records at the age of 14, after attending his first high school dance. During the early years, DJ XEL would record mixes of the legendary Hot Mix 5, and study them to hone his mixing skills.
27 years later, DJ XEL is still rockin the Wheels of steel, spinning deep soulful house, jacking house, acid jazz and everything in between, finding creative ways to bring music and people together. After a recent relocation to Minneapolis, DJ XEL has teamed up with Richy Rivera, to play together under the name Deep Grooves, as well as throwing parties under the name SideStream Productions. You can find them playing around the Twin Cities at venues such as Darby’s, Honey, and various one off events. The next step for DJ XEL is to head into the studio and begin working on his own productions, so stay tuned.
…..May the FUNK be with you.
