On this week's show we bring you another exclusive one hour set from Chicago based DJ and all round nice guy Voc Walters. It's Voc's 2nd mix for the show and it's a non stop dance off!!
Voc does big room house music in the way that many attempt but few perfect. His relentless sets come soaked in disco music's sweet vocals and basslines whilst morphing together soulful garage and the darker but funky sound of chicago.
Voc first started spinning records at the age of 12. Growing up on the south side of Chicago provided him with many influences such as the Hot Mix 5, Pharris Thomas, Ron Hardy, Frankie Knuckles, Lil Louis & Steve Hurley.
Voc made a few appearances on the big stage early on. Those appearances included the Ascot Hotel and The Hyde Park Racketball Club in Chicago, and a guest appearance on WKKC Chicago in the 80's. These appearances were along side the likes of Mr. Gene Hunt, Tyree Cooper, Pharris Thomas and Lloyd Dev just to name a few...
After taking a break from DJing for a decade, Voc made his return in 2007 and hasn't looked back since.
His regular appearances at Artis's Lounge in Chicago has seen him play along side the likes of Gene Hunt. Voc has also played the Output Lounge with Dave Britton and Czr, held a residency at The Uptown Lounge in the city and recently appeared as a guest DJ on Chicago's Soul 106.3 FM along side of Mike Dunn, Dj Lil John and Sundance.
When asked who his recent influences are he said "Larry Heard, Gene Hunt, Lloyd Dev, Julius The Mad Thinker, Jamie 326, Osunlade & DJ Emanuel".
Tapers be ready, Voc's mix delivers the kind of house music we love and it's packed to the brim with tight little edits.
Salutes as always to DJ Izrail, head of the Dig Deep Chicago Family and resident at the up and coming Tradition club night.
