Porn & Chicken is back making some noise with their wild antics and new music for their chicken heads. If you are still somehow unfamiliar with this trio consisting of Orville Kline, Dom Brown and Phives from Chicago get out from under that rock! Starting out with more relaxed weekly sessions at Risqué in Chicagos Wrigleyville, they have made their name for having the wildest Monday night parties at evilOlive with some of the biggest names in the national Dubstep & Bass community. They have since moved on to theMID to do the same but as you should know the historic venue met its end with a streak of farewell parties from late last summer well into January 2019. But that of course does not stop this party machine.
Porn & Chicken, quick on their feet using all of their recources, following their 8th year anniversary banger, have been hitting shows and festivals back to back with names like Midnight Conspiracy, Figure, Virtual Riot, Bommer, He$h, Axilon and more with multiple collaborations with Planet Filth. Now they are back to their Porn & Chicken experience this time at Bottom Lounge on a monthly basis with an 18+ crowd, so you can get your ass in line for some free chicken wing and public porn viewing. Initiating the return with a vampire lingerie themed costume party Friday March 22nd, they will be taking advantage of the Lounges stage to perform as a live act! Of course equipped with some new tracks as well like their first releases of the year Get Back with RAAKMO and Step in the Flames with Steve Gerard. Expect nothing short of hedonist behavior because these guys know how to influence a crowd.
From heretics to heathens, life seems to be a bit more fun on that edge of perspectives. Not following a certain set of rules or religions can have its perks. The people that come with that lifestyle bring certain characteristics to life that add to the curiousness of being a human, just as Kleavr does with his music. You cannot practice heresy with synths and violins, unless you are a clockwork orange variety, so we have heavy bass music to place in background of our heathenism.
From Chicago, Stay Gold Promotions DJ and producer Kleavr has been making a big name for himself getting recognized by fellow heathens like 12th Planet and Borgore and others and rightly so. Almost relentless with music releases you have countless tracks from just the start of the new year alone to get wild to. Consistency is key when building a career path and Kleavr got that down to key. From collabs to remixes and originals there is no scarcity in music to be deprived from and he is set to release more as we speak… or read.
From the start of the year, as he has been, Kleavr continues to drop track after track starting with a collab with STOY dubbed Salad Fingers following a bootleg remix of Liquid Strangers’ Ripple to end out the last year. He follows up with more collaborations with Kentucky artist Tantrum, turning out to be a powerful duo as they rock the stage together at shows. His most recent releases have been hitting Borgore’s BuyGore label, most prominently and recently, his EP the Heretic has been getting much buzz around the local dubstep community following a single release Fury Blade, another piece with Tantrum on Buygore. Even more so his music has been getting him booked in places like Montreal, Denver, Philidelphia, LA and more; exited to see how this artists progresses as he grabs hold of new opportunites everyday.
Elevatd and on fire with new releases, this Chicago duo is going on a music spree on their playlist. Since the new year they have been giving us more and more content from their exclusive live sets. If you frequent their shows you would have bragging rights to hearing them first. However with recent guest features on podcast radios like Lost In The Sauce, The XO and OTODAYO, online fans are getting lucky. Following their halloween remix and original releases Elevatd has been busy both on and off stage.
Between performing at spots like Liquid in Madison, Corcord Music Hall in Chicago, Radiance Afters in Milwaukee and again with YehMe2, they have been hitting podcasts where you can get an idea of how they throw down at live shows. This includes exclusive IDs’, some of which were recently released like Save Me featuring Micah Martin who was featured on their Curse Them All track back when they announced a rebranding. Another one includes a collaboration with locals SNOOF for Super 7 record label which speaks for artists like NGHTMRE, TJR, Z-Trip, Grandtheft and more. Lastly and most recently they release Bring It Like, another heavy bass track, like This Will Never End, includes a catchy hook to accompany monstrous bass drops.
Working under labels and performing with artists associated with Dim Mak, Buygore, Firepower, Super 7 and more you better take KTRL and recognize, if you have not already, the potential your playlist can yield with this music. From Chicago, KTRL has some power behind his bass that you cannot ignore and the man otherwise known as Adam Kishanov is back, following an LP and a few collabs, with something new. Working with locals Joystick on the collab original dubbed Loading this team created a mid-tempo bass beat that will have you rocking the dance floor. This is even mild compared to what KTRL has in his discography but still heavy enough to have Circus Records all over it; and you should already know what Circus has for them to stand up to.
Goodsex is just here to show you how good you already are and it shows! Aside from all the great puns that you and I both have running through our minds, it is important to realize the power of music and the message it can send to its listeners. This Chicago duo takes that idea an extra mile sending positive messages and high vibes to their fans in each song they put out. From their originals to their remixes, all their songs do is make you believe in love!
Their latest project comes to fruition after a simple request of their fans. From their EP With Friends Vol. 1 the duo has a song called Joy and they ask their audience to send in footage of themselves enjoying life! The end result is a music video compilation of people having the time of their lives and you just cannot help but wiggle around and smile at the expression of life and love. This follows a remix collaboration of Birthday Sex with another familiar Chicago duo Birthdayy Partyy and a remake of a classic funk pop song Reach Out Of The Darkness by Friend & Lover. Their cycle of feel good lyrics and tunes makes a great playlist for people to get together and we think that’s So Groovy. It is most admirable creating a lifestyle through music that makes others feel good regardless of who they are.
This Chicago native has been around for quite some time, acquiring living legend status, being among one of the most recognized names in dance music culture. Still as time passes with new music and new favorites from many artists coming and going it may be easy to forget our roots. Well Kaskade is back again in his zone to remind you where you came from with two recent original releases that hit closer to his classic house music sound, following Cold As Stone and his Odesza remix of Falls that hold a style more in tune with the contemporary future house and bass sound. On Your Mind and Love Me Like You Used To bring us back those ambient vibes we all love to dance too. Experimenting with many different sounds over the years that no doubt have influence on each new track, Kaskade always returns to what we love him best for and he has not lost touch one bit, he just continues to evolve and we come back to love him like we used to.

Collaborating with Kaleena Zanders to provide lyrics denoting that whatever you are looking at for is right in front of you once you embrace a world full of chaos. Still hot off her collab piece Before I Go, Kaleena is the perfect voice for this future house beat by Win and Woo. This tune will have you singing out loud and playing on repeat.
This Birthdayy Partyy was one of a surprise! Popping into the Chicago electronic music scene seemingly out of no where, the duo always seem to be where the party is at. They do however have a good history in the local music industry for those that know. You would have luck catching them on the big stage at events like Spring Awakening, headlining popular Chicago venues or opening for big acts like Malaa with a heavy bass house sound growling between every beat. Needless to say they got a good support network and even better ear for music that controls a crowd.
With the music the two would be releasing to their fans it is no wonder they get the recognition they do. Reviving classics like Let Me Love You by Mario, Paramore‘s Misery Business, Gwen Stefani‘s Hollaback Girl and most recently, Jeremih‘s Birthday Sex on a remix collaboration with Goodsex because, well, how can they not?
