About the Event
is a house DJ based out of Chicago, IL. A dancefloor queen with punchy, bangin’ house beats that don’t stop, her style blends bangin’ beats with a touch of deep, tech, and funk vibes. An intense love for all styles of house music combined with a never-ending search for that ultimate track is what motivates Jillian’s sets. Jillian x has DJ’d throughout Chicago at Le Nocturne, Celeste, Emporium, East Room, Sleeping Village, Hungry Brain, Cerise Rooftop and Upstairs at Virgin Hotels, Arbella, Logan11, The Darling, and Elastic Arts.
They say a picture is worth a thousand words, but what is the value of a beat? A rhythm? A melody? Chicago-based DJ Duke Shin doesn't have any of those answers for you, but what he does have is a musical arsenal of the loud and strange, gentle and nuanced, mid tempo slow burns and torrid electronic freak outs-all wrapped up in deep house love, driven with a cybernetic techno heart. And his search to answer the question in finding the value of music has lead him to DJing many clubs, bars, lounges and loft parties including favorites like Smart Bar, Primary, the Museum of Contemporary Art and the infamous Freakeasy parties in Chicago. Somewhere along the way, Duke has had the good fortune in opening for electronic dance music luminaries like Seth Troxler, Holy Ghost!, Guillaume & the Coutu Dumonts, M.A.N.D.Y., Mark E and Moby, and has enjoyed playing afterparties for bands like the Dandy Warhols, TV On The Radio, Jamie Lidell and Nouvelle Vague. When he's not busy DJing, Duke also enjoys writing as a music journalist, and has had countless features, reviews and interviews published in Resident Advisor, BPM Magazine, New City Chicago (where he previously served as Clubs Editor for over 2 years) and CityPages MN. With an ever-evolving sound, Duke never slows down, continuing his search for musical enlightenment while delighting (and occasionally befuddling) ardent dance floor denizens and lovers of the eclectic mix...
