Powerplay week 27


Gene Farris

Gene Farris has a solid track record in the house scene, which has lasted almost 3 decades. He was one of the first Power House resident DJs in Chicago and then resident DJ at Chicago’s famous Boom Boom Room for 8 years. In the years that followed, he was a resident DJ at Jimmy Woo in Amsterdam for 4 years.

His EP release “Welcome To Chicago” via Defected Records in 2003 is a cult classic.

More recently, he has collaborated with producers Green Velvet, Erick Morillo, Sonny Fodera and Harry Romero.

On the streaming platforms, especially recent releases “Aphrodisiac” (2019) and “We work it” (2018) are very popular.

His latest release “Popular” was released last week via Spinnin “Deep.

The intro of “Popular” reminds me very much of a classic by MJ.
