Been listening since the late 80's. I love the old classic Chicago style house, and in my 20's, danced to hip house on Rush St, but the sub genre of house that still gets me off my couch and into the clubs is soulful, vocal house.
Frankie Knuckles is probably the most recognizable name who is one of my all time favs. Others include Kaskade, Miguel Migs, Diz (Chi), Mark Grant (Chi), Drack Muse (LA), Derrick Wize (Chi/LA), Marcus Wyatt, the house band from NY, Tortured Soul...
I'm Chrissy and a househead from Chicago. Moved here in May 07 and one of the biggest things missing here is a place to hear soulful house.
It's hard to judge the group because we have only had the one meetup, but if you share an appreciation for this sub genre of house, come join so we can grow the numbers and plan more outings.
