Chicago’s Justin Long and Mazi pair up as Wasted Chicago Youth for a special edition of .dotBleep at Smart Bar. Jay Haze’s Tuning Spork imprint will release their DJ sets as a double-disc affair for the label’s ten-year anniversary. Haze featured WCY’s “Mars or Bust” on his recent Fabric mix CD and the duo’s remixing skills are in high demand after solid efforts for the .dotbleep and Fresh Meat labels. The duo is known for their blend of bass-heavy, percussive house music fueled by elements of minimal and big-room techno, essentially the influences of their storied careers as DJs and producers in Chicago. Their goal is to incorporate the crowd into this mix and a possible video, so don’t miss your chance to be a part of the action. (John Alex Colon)
