Lake Street Collective April 2nd at Darkroom
On Friday, April 2nd, the Lake Street Collective returns to Chicago’s Darkroom to celebrate the official launch of BeatMaven.com, a new electronic music podcast network that offers up hours upon hours of streaming and downloadable electronic DJ mixes. The party will be broadcast live on BeatMaven.com and will feature the turntable stylings of Jugoe (Bastard Jazz Recordings/Cleveland), a live performance from the tech funk duo VOLT MODZ (Revolutionary Music) and DJ performances from DJ Striz (illmeasures) and Ryan Scott & Filip D. aka twoDeep. As always, Revolutionary Music and illmeasures, the crews behind the Lake Street Collective, promise to bring the underground loft party vibe to the Darkroom dance floor. Their last party at Darkroom was massive!
After a short hiatus from the music scene, Brooklyn’s Bastard Jazz Recordings Artist, Jugoe is once again ready to invade your space. In the studio, his sounds tend to lean toward the more chill, abstract dub vibe – but as a DJ, he has a “no categories” policy – playing everything from glitch to afrobeat and everything in between. Having performed along such tastemakers as Diplo, ?uestlove, Bassnectar, Mr Scruff, Quantic, DJ Krush, RJD2 and dozens more, this Cleveland native / Chicago transplant knows how to keep a dance floor interesting. Expect an eclectic set of drunken funkiness.

The VOLT MODZ play a continuous live set of acid house, jackin house, glitchy minimal and dirty electro funk using analog and digital synthesizers along with the AKAI APC40. Prepare to werk it!
