OM artist and Chicago favorite DJ Colette has a few friends in tow for this month’s visit to Smart Bar. Orlando’s Just Jason delivers a robotic twist to the disco and funk side of house music, pushing the audience to the dance floor with an infectious blend of wobbling bass lines and shuffling rhythms. Sharp Inner Tubes brings classic Chicago house flavor to the table, replete with jazzy horns and strings, steady beats and cleverly placed vocal samples. Colette, no slouch herself, promises to amaze with her signature vocal improv styles, layered live for the crowd over a solidly mixed set of funky and techno-influenced house grooves.
