Do you still remember that first good night out at a big Chicago club when you said, “Now I get it!”? There’s a good chance that the man who baptized your new reverence for ass-shaking was Chris Gin. With a frenzied-yet-disciplined approach to mixing, Gin worked his way through institutions like China Club, Shelter, Karma and Crobar. While Gin’s maniacal blends of harder-edged techno and progressive house are what quickly pushed him to the forefront of the club scene, it’s now his diversity, experience and sustained love of music that dictate his always-flawless sets. Expect to hear anything from classic techno and homegrown house classics to the latest prime cuts. Also on the bill is Dave Brock, who delivers a trippy-edged house thump with a jackload of experience. Drop in tonight and catch up with two of Chicago’s true master selectors at work. (Duke Shin)
