Farley Keith Mixes, 1984-1986

Farley

Any study of influential Chicago DJs would be incomplete without Farley Keith (later Farley “Jackmaster” Funk). Farley started DJing at the Playground in 1981, where he would stay through several name changes until 1987; however it was his work with the Hot Mix 5 on WBMX that reached the largest audience.

Farley was one of five original members in 1981, and his mixes exposed the entire city to what was happening in Chicago’s South Side clubs. In 1984, Farley left for WGCI (after Scott “Smokin” Silz’s departure). In 1986, he was joined by the rest of the group. Then Farley returned to WBMX in 1987, only to see the station sold.

I’ve compiled track lists for the earliest Farley mixes I could find online. All are hosted by Deephousepage.com. It’s interesting to see the balance between older disco and soul and contemporary European imports. In 1984 and 1985, local productions began to trickle in, but it wasn’t until 1986 that there would be enough to fill most of a mix. Also of note are dark synthpop tracks, notably in mix 1277. By contrast, see the mainstream Billboard dance hits of 1985.

Some of the IDs below were first compiled by Mister_DJ at Old Skool Anthemz. Special thanks to Magic Juan for filling in many gaps. Please let me know if you can identify any of the missing tracks.
