Soulful, playful, and jovial are apt adjectives to describe the 3 Degrees DJs. House music is their specialty, yet even here in Chicago, the genre’s birthplace, their approach is unique and always worth the venture outdoors. The crew’s most lethal weapons—Julius the Mad Thinker, FLX and Monna—will be working the decks at Smart Bar. Jacking on the dancefloor to stomping 4/4 rhythms, swaying to horn- and bass-fueled arrangements spiked with the occasional vocal jolt should get a nice, thick vibe worked up on the dancefloor when these two hit.
