The new millennium brought with it an evolution in the electronic music
scene in Chicago, and Johnny Chaos was on its forefront. Holding down over
20 DJ residencies including Vision, Spy Bar, Sound-Bar, and Crobar, his
name was synonymous with the hottest nights and the freshest vibes. His
deliverance of solid sets combined with his notorious crowds kept him in
high demand. Whenever a new club opened or a new promotion launched,
Johnny was on board. As the popularity of theater shows grew, Johnny was
on stage – playing every theater venue in Chicago, next to every top DJ in
the game!

However, it wasn’t long before his demand spread beyond Chicago. Playing
over 30 cities on 3 continents and counting – Johnny is steadily leaving
crowds wondering what just hit them, and yearning for more! Known for his
supreme programming skills, Chaos’ musical voyages meander through chunky,
brooding tracks with pulsating baselines that feed eager ears, seamlessly
weaving the fringes of electro and techno alike, building into techy-house
explosions that feverishly catapult crowds into fist-pumping frenzies!
In 2007, after attending his 6th Winter Music Conference, the siren’s call
of Miami overcame Johnny and he relocated to South Beach. Although he is
planting his musical seeds in the South East, he still considers Chicago
his home and cherishes his trips back to rock its dance floors!
“There is no place like Chicago for me. When I am on stage and I see my
friend’s smiling faces in the crowd, I feel like the luckiest guy on
earth!” ~JC

Hailing from schools of progressive, house, breaks, and incorporating some
elements of trance, RJ is no stranger to the politics of dancing.He’s been
a musician for pretty much all his life, beginning with classical music
training in both piano and guitar.As he grew older and more mature, so did
his musical tastes. Being from the Chicago area, he’s been brought up
around house music, but he didn’t realize just how powerful dance music
could be until he heard his first Chemical Brothers record in 1994. The
rest, as they say, is history.

RJ has made himself a nice home in the Chicago electronic music circuit as
a resident DJ with VISION. He’s also called notable places such as SPYBAR
and SOUND-BAR home in the past. As a result, he’s gotten to share the
decks with the finest of global talent.

The energy-building and crowd-reading abilities that RJ has honed over the
years, have lead him to share billings with: Paul Van Dyk, John Digweed,
Luke Fair, Armin Van Buuren, Dave Seaman, Second Sun, Markus Schulz,
Gabriel & Dresden, Paul Oakenfold, Sandra Collins, Kenneth Thomas, Jerry
Bonham, Infected Mushroom, Hernan Cattaneo, Steve Porter,Matt Darey,
Taylor, Ferry Corsten, Montana, Matthew Dekay, Benny Benassi, Seb
Fontaine, Filo & Peri, 16bit Lolitas, Blank& Jones, Ricky Ryan (Can
Costa), Angelo Mike, Rank1, Jennifer Rene, Phynn, Sander Van Doorn, and
the list continues to grow…

…and he continues to deepen his roots within the flourishing scene in
Keep an eye on this one. He’s up to no good, in a great way.

In what we have come to know as the ever-changing world of electronic
dance music, Wahi is a man on the rise. He resists conforming to genres
and refuses to label his work. As a DJ, his track selections are often
audacious and brazenly fresh, challenging the audience towards expansion
of their listening vocabulary as he simultaneously herds them onto the
dance floor time and again. With the recent launch of his digital label
Curbed Recordings and a residency playing beside some of the best artists
in the world at Chicago’s Vision night club he’s definitely got his hands
full. His resume includes opening for the likes of James Zabiela, MANDY,
Steve Lawler and John Digweed who has been quoted as saying “Wahi is set
to make a splash in 2009”,.

Trained in classical guitar as a child, it’s no wonder that once in high
school his musical attention quickly shifted to the world of DJ culture.
At the age of 21 he launched his DJ career playing Velvet in St Louis .
After going on to play various clubs throughout Chicago, he emerged onto
the global EDM scene through a relationship with Spundae in 2002.

Now an instrumental leader of the team that programs Chicago nightlife’s
largest EDM shows, Milo feels he has barely begun his climb towards the
top of the industry. In 2008 Wahi launched his digital label, Curbed
Recordings and with the release of his track More Soul Please, he’s been
getting plenty of plays and loads of attention from the worlds top DJ’s.
Keeping busy, Wahi also hosts a monthly show on Proton Radio. At the pace
he’s working his way up through the ranks of global DJ’s, the rest of us
have only to sit back and watch his rise to the top.
