    Who's from the chicago area on here? I think it'd be cool to get up with some other chicagoland dj techtoolers.

    does anyone have any ins on playing some gigs in the area? I played a few nights in dekalb a while ago, but that club shut down. and ever since, I've been pretty much at a loss to find a club spot. As of now, I'm the dj for a semi pro basketball team here in Kankakee, and I do small events here and there, but I'm tryin to land a club gig so I can stop playing justin beiber haha

    lol. Not really I've never played a club in chicago. I go to school in Champain right no. Champaign actually has a pretty big edm/dj scene here. I know quite a few of the dj's i champaign play in Chicago. I recommend you make a very good promo mix and a really nice press kit and send it to the bars in Chicago. Some of the bars really like giving local dj's a chance so if you send them quality they may be willing to work with you.

    There are some pretty popular events. Most places don't play house on the regular, but they have weekly, bi-weekly, or monthly events that are very popular. There's Electro vs. Dubstep-monthly (300+ people showed up for the last one), Dubstep Massacre/Dubstep Masquerade-monthly (this event has a loyal fan base and what ever club its held at fills to capacity before 11pm), Let the bass Kick-monthly I think (this event is just starting, but is showing promise the first one is this weekend), and there is discotech-weekly (this event is a chill event where all varieties of edm are played). Ha I'm actually about to go to discotech now actually. In addition to he big dj scene there is also a lot of producers (myself included) that collab and learn/teach each other. It's really awesome.

    If youre that far south you might as well stop by Eastern Illinois University. It's about an hour past champagne and that's where I go to school. Just saying.
