New Year's Eve with Gene Farris (Extended Set)

SEE EVENT DETAILS
Gene Farris is the sinister minister of dance music¹s changing sounds. Farris¹s global DJ track record and extensive discography of over forty productions are definitely a testament to the true Chicago house sound. Farris’s unique dexterous DJ style that includes extended sultry, melodic blends with tuff beats makes him a party favorite around the world. House music is Farris’s undoubted passion that also drives his full flavored, colorful studio creations. Farris’s deep roots in house music and strive to be the best keeps him on the global electronic music industry’s cutting edge.

Pushed by local kids in his South Side neighborhood of Chicago Gene Farris caught the DJ bug at the tender age of twelve. Inspired by the likes of Ron Hardy, Prince, and Roy Ayers Farris began blending a mixture of funk, disco, and soul combined with eighties’ pop icons such as, Duran Duran. One may still hear hints of disco in his style.

Even in his early years Farris was constantly on the move. By making mix tapes for his neighborhood buddies and selling them at many famed Windy City record stores like Gramaphone, Farris’s spinning skills quickly developed. Not only did Farris’s style evolve, his reputation rapidly grew. After many late nights ‘beatn’ down neighborhood block parties, Farris earned his childhood dream slot warming up for legendary Ron Hardy and Ron Carrol at the epic AKA Club.

As the early nineties approached, Gene Farris became a major player in the thriving Chicago dance scene. Wanting to hear more diverse house music Farris inevitably began to produce his own tracks. His first production style was tuff, loopy and tracky House. At the time Cajmere (of Green Velvet) just started a new label named, Relief Records. Close friend, Ron Trent, urged Farris take his hard hitting tunes to Relief Records. Trent thought Farris’s tracky sound was perfect for the early Relief.
