CHICAGO: This Thursday, October 9th Disco Illusion Presents Love On The Run!

Disco Illusion Presents Love On The Run!

The Disco Illusion Crew is Proud & Honored to host the return of Love On the Run for another night of Deep Disco/AfroFunk/ModernSoul/Gospel/Boogie&HolyGrails...

Love On The Run has had a busy 2014 with eclectic DJ sets in London, Leeds, Chicago, Montreal, LA and NYC, spinning deeper shades of Disco and Soul. Love On The Run’s lifelong obsession with club music and DJ’ing began in his native New York City during its notorious late ‘80s and early ‘90s. This wild era of NYC nightlife left such an impact on him, he spent the next 20+ years completely immersed in Deep House and Disco culture buying vinyl, working in record stores, labels, vinyl distributors, promoting underground parties and DJ’ing both locally and eventually abroad from London to Moscow. While working at Satellite Record store during the ‘90s he cemented his reputation for having a keen ear with many of NYC’s DJs and industry insiders for breaking new sounds behind the scenes. Never satisfied with the status quo, his quest to unearth quality new tunes eventually led him to explore new avenues throughout the city’s cultural melting pot, digging both deeper and in less expected places than the majority of his peers. This endless search had led him to dingy basements, moldy garages, defunct shops, homes of strangers and more odd venues in the pursuit of eclectic vinyl. His musical ethos combined with DJ sets at his intimate club nights from the ‘90s throughout 2000s have earned him loyal fans, and through his edits, mixes, radio shows, secret vinyl societies and “Secret Rendezvous” blog, his taste and passion for sharing great unheard music has earned him the respect of listeners around the globe today. This is only expected to grow with his upcoming compilation series and private reissue record label slated for the end of the year. This Thursday marks his second visit to Chicago this year to play along side the Disco Illusion crew.

Don' Sleep Chicago..

Hate it or love it, this puppy gets the reissue treatment from our friends at ATHENS IN THE NORTH!


RIP Matt Stackswell

It seems only the good die young. I hate to see two of our bright young stars pass recently. We had some good times buddy, and your energy was unparalleled. He blessed the decks from DC to NYC and points all over the U.S. and abroad. Rest in power.

Here is a mix he did for this site as a promo for his night: CLICK

Our friends at Let's Get Serious bumped up an archived show from our buddy Matt to their front page.

RIP Danny DJ Who

RIP Danny DjWho, shocked to hear about the passing of this young and passionate music lover in our scene. My thoughts are with his close friends like Peter Reyes, his partner Nacho and family. We were literally just talking about him yesterday over the phone and planning on setting up an event together. Such a shock.
I've listened to this many times, will get extra love and sending positive vibrations today...
