Chip E.
Chip E.
Born: 1966, Chicago, Illinois

Chip E. started spinning records in 1982, by 1984 he was producing records. In 1986 Street Mix magazine declared Chip E. as the "Godfather of House Music". In 1987 he became the first (and still the only) Chicago artist to be in regular rotation on all 3 major Chicago radio stations (WBMX, WGCI, B96). Former B96 programming manager Joe Bohannon (Joe Bo) made the decision to add "If You Only Knew" to regular rotation and with that began the transition of the station from CHR (contemporary hit radio) to a Dance Music station. Chip E. took DJ/Remixer Frankie Knuckles under his wing when he co-produced Frankie’s first record "You Can’t Hide". Other artists Chip jump started into the music world were Liddell Townsel, Kevin Irving, and Harri Dennis of "The It". By the age of 21 Chip E. was a world wide name. Because of difficulties getting out of a contract with D.J. International records, Chip decided that he would rather not record if he had to do it for D.J. International. Although he does the rare DJ gig in Britain or Italy, to quote Sean Bidder’s book "House – The Rough Guide", Chip E. has moved into "the realms of mythology".

Andrew Emil
Andrew Emil
The artist’s own forward-thinking mind-set led him to a career as a sound engineer. A concert-trained percussionist since age 11, Emil earned a chair in his native Kansas City Symphony and moved to Chicago in the late-’90s to attend Columbia College Chicago. His passion for all forms of art—both audio and visual—led Emil and his brother Erik Christian to host gallery events that integrated sound, graphics and graffiti. This pursuit of "The Future Sound of Chicago House" inspired Emil to birth a new imprint: four play music. Today, Emil’s sound reflects the eclectic elements of classic and contemporary Chicago House as well as jazz and soul. Currently, Andrew is working on a full length Broadway & Wilson lp and developing a new moniker: After Monday (Gene Farris & Andrew Emil).
