Few Chicago DJs have had more influence on the identity of that Chi-Town thump than Raphael “Lego” Rodriguez. A product of Logan Square’s Latino community, Lego infuses his native flavor to the beats he doles out from behind the decks. Recently, the man behind “El Ritmo de Verdad” ended his fourteen-year residency with the pansexual utopia known as Boom Boom Room, so count yourself lucky to catch him tonight at Caliber Entertainment’s intimate Therapy night. Host and resident selector Nate Manic will also be on hand. Although this Madison, Wisconsin transplant has garnered increasing visibility by opening for deep and bangin’ headliners alike, expect a dynamic range of down-tempo, broken beat, and house sounds—consistently solid, yet inventively mixed.
