Direct from Chicago, USA, the big man Rahaan returns to Sydney to bring the heat!

Channelling the spirit of Chicago DJ pioneers like Ron Hardy, Farley Jackmaster Funk and the Hot Mix 5, Rahaan has been laying down sets spanning everything from jacking house, deep disco, boogie and funk since the 80`s. From underground basement parties on the southside of Chicago, to playing at big nights in the UK, Europe and Japan, his skill and… energy behind the decks has brought him out from the Chicago underground and onto the world stage, gaining him a cult following.

In addition to his own productions, Rahaan has been knocking up his own edits which have been released on labels including StillLove4Music, KAT and Jisco. A compilation of his best edits to date is due out soon on Spacemachine records.

Do not miss this chance to see the windy city’s finest spin an extended 4 hour set in an intimate inner city warehouse location.

In the meantime, check out the exclusive mix Rahaan has put together for the tour.

Rahaan – People Must Jam – Shake You by PeopleMustJam

People Must Jam Top Ten Loft Classics:

Nu Yorican Soul ‘The Nervous Track’

Well if were partying in a loft, we have to include one of Mancusos favourites! All time classic, I can imagine this sounding sweet as the sun starts to stream in through the windows in the morning , a bit of MAW magic for the soul trippers.

Mr Scruff ‘Chicken in A Box’

First heard this in a sweaty basement in Manchester, sounds well weird to start, but then when it breaks and then the heavy bass kicks in it all makes perfect sense. Scruff at his finest!

Equals ‘Nobodys Got Time’

A recent find, super funky, the keyboard riffs over the top are sublime – sounds like Bernie Worrel jamming along! Apparently this was Eddie Grants last ever band outing.

Jayeche ‘Jayeche’

Proggy, trippy space funk out of Venezuela of all places! – moonboots are essential for proper listening, the whole album is stunning!

Isolee ‘Beau Mot Plage’

A true house music classic, perfect for a loft style party.  Trippy gorgeous house music that sounds as fresh today as it did when it was written in 2000.

Tone Theory ‘Limbo of Vanished Possibilities’

This takes be back to early Basics days in Leeds.  One of my all time favourite tracks and one of Derrick Carter’s finest moments.  Such a great record.

Paperclip People ‘Throw’

Who doesn’t love this record?!!  It doesn’t matter how many times you hear it, the dance floor always loves it.  Again an all time favourite.

Space Dimension Controller ‘Love Quadrant’

A defining record for the young Irish producer.  This record is two years old already but will definitely go down as a modern day classic.  Absolutely inspiring stuff…

The Knight Writers ‘Let The Music Use You’ (Total Spectrum Records)

Little-known alternative version of this classic early Chicago deep house track – has an amazing spanish-style guitar line over the top. Excellent!

Lanier ’25 Hours’ (Clarence)

Incredible soulful disco track off one of Peter Brown and Patrick Adams‘ many side labels. From around 4min onwards this track takes off into the stratosphere and doesn’t stop until it literally crashes back down to earth at the end. The keys on the piano must have melted off after they finished up on this – the track is that hot!

Mutiny ‘The Ballad of Cap’t Hymbad’ (Columbia)

Deep spiritual disco.

Midair ‘Ease Out’ (Full Scope)

Killer Chicago boogie track from 1983. Both sides of this record are amazing! The B-side is an amazing instrumental dub, but the A-side is something to behold – the guy on vocals hits this one out of the park, especially the last minute! Incredible!
