Chance the Rapper
A 19 year old Rap Master from Chicago, Chance The Rapper first made some noise on the Chicago hip-hop blog Fake Shore Drive with his video for Nostalgia in early 2011. Since then Chance has building a steady buzz, with packed out listening parties at Leaders1354 & JUGRNAUT in CHI, the full release of his premiere mixtape #10Day, and the SOLD OUT first ever #10DayLive show at Lincoln Hall. Check him out on twitter @ChanceTheRapper & Instagram @ChanceTheRapper
DJ Rashad has been instrumental to the creation and evolution of Chicago Juke music and has been lifelong friends with other key players on the scene, such as Paul Johnson, DJ Gant-Man, DJ Spinn, DJ Godfather, and Jammin Gerald. He has the ability to blend elements of house, ghetto house, disco, juke, and ghettotech together with a knack for creating sparse, snappy tracks that manage to convey a physicality and funk with a spectacular precision.
Along with his teammates DJ Spinn and DJ Gant-Man, DJ Rashad has become notorious for making juke anthems that have made fans outside the world of Chicago mix cds. He's DJ'ed across Europe and released records on Juke Trax and Databass records earlier on in his career and some big remixes and collaborations are in the pipeline.
The girls of Spinn have always been firm believers that there's not much in life that can't be fixed with great music, good friends, and a few shots of tequila. And whether it's their beautiful blend of three part harmonies, vibrant stage presence, or infectious personalities, it's no wonder their attitude helped them receive notoriety around the Jersey music scene and beyond.
Forming in 2006, they began playing shows at legendary Asbury Park venues such as The Saint and Fastlane, and soon spread their music across the Hudson River in NYC with a wave of performances at Kenny's Castaway's, The Delancy, Ella Lounge, Tammany Hall, and the National Underground. After gaining monentum over the next several years, Spinn went on to record their debut album "She Was Heartache" in 2009 with a rhythm section that included guitarist Steve DeSteno and drummer Dominick Velardo. This lead to a successful college radio promotion campaign and even a feature on NJ Radio station's WDHA 105.5 FM on Lindsay Klein's Homegrown Spotlight.
Their release of the 2009 EP "She was Heartache" brought the band to new heights around the US, eventually landing then in Hartford, CT at the Webster and a slot at Peabody's Inn for the Cleveland Music Festival. Spinn went on to release their most recent album "A Little Crazy" in July 2012 and have moved from playing smaller clubs to bigger venues such as Rockwood Music Hall, Arlene's Grocery, and the Bitter End.
Reminiscent of the Dixie chicks, the Gin Blossoms and the acoustic-laden styling of Ray Lamontagne, their unique melody lines grab audiences' attention immediately and their ability to blend different genres always proves to entertain and inspire. Spinn considers their friends and fans a part of an extended family and wishes to share their feel-good atmosphere with honest lyrics and a style of songwriting that is sure to pull you in from the moment the music starts.
