After finally recovering from our mammoth birthday weekend we are ready to set sail on another journey. It was fitting to find the right DJ to christen our new venue. So flying in from the US we have Florida-raised, Chicago-based Amir Alexander. A long time DJ since ’93 and producer since ’98. He created Vanguard Sound in February 2006 with the first release hitting down in 2011.
After making his presence felt in the Chicago club scene Amir decided to focus on advancing his production skills. Soon after he linked up with G Marcell and Hakim Murphy, then began to release gritty tracks on labels Bearatonerecordings, Plan B, Machine Dreams and Vanguard Sound. His recent release on new label Argot flew off the shelves. Future releases include ‘Everybody’s Beautiful EP’ on Hypercolour and a combined release with Hakim Murphy on Finale Sessions. The future looks very bright for this underground soldier “a cat that strives to bring a raw and gritty modern spin on classic Detroit, Chicago, and New York sounds”.
The venue will be announced closer to the event day.
