To prepare for the release of Hardcore Traxx we're streaming one of the tracks off the compilation, "Feel My M.F. Bass," from chart-topping DJ and producer Paul Johnson, which is a great example of the kind of unvarnished, minimal house music that fills dance floors. If you dig the track I highly recommend checking out Johnson's free noontime performance at the Chicago Cultural Center this Friday. It's part of the Department of Cultural Affairs and Special Events' ongoing "Wired Fridays" series, which hosts house and footwork producers the first and third Fridays of every month—I caught Traxman's "Wired Fridays" set a couple months ago, and it was a pleasure watching senior citizens, twentysomethings, and school children give footworking a try. I can't think of a better way to spend my lunchtime break than seeing Johnson's set.
