City Series Mix Volume 47
DJ Earl entered the musical world in 2005 by means of dance battle. He participated at local parties at skate rinks building up his unfailing knowledge of music culture. In 2008 he meets DJ Spinn and DJ Rashad, triggering production of his own footwork tracks. Soon after he joins the Ghetto Teknitianz beside Spinn, Rashad, Traxman and many others.
DJ Earl represents the new generation of Chicago’s sound; a unique mixture of jazz and funk tunes, devilish synthesizers, unstructured hip hop samples, heavy sub basses and mesmerizing snares. With releases on prestigious record labels such as Hyperdub & Planet Mu, and performances at renowned spots such as Boiler Room & Fabric London, there's no telling what's in store for the future.
