Hello! I’m a music journalist with a focus on house, techno, and experimental music. I founded this site in 1999. Its most popular feature is a collection of classic Chicago house mixes by Ron Hardy and Frankie Knuckles.

Below are highlights of my work. Additionally, I’ve written for Chicago Magazine, Faith Fanzine, and Wax Poetics, and I’ve authored liner notes for Still Music and other record labels.
