ECSTASY: DJ Deeon, DJ Marfox, J-Cush, Massacooramaan, DJ Rafael
1001 SE Morrison St.
[GHETTO SENSEI AND PUPILS] Some two decades ago on the south side of Chicago, DJ Deeon fused popping house beats with dirty hip-hop samples to create offspring completely unlike its forebears. Ghetto house quickly populated the globe, changing with the times and surroundings, and there are perhaps no more representative modern acolytes than DJ Marfox and J-Cush. In New York, Cush pushes juke and footwork—themselves cousins of ghetto house—to new levels with his label, Lit City Trax. And in Lisbon, Marfox has somehow turned up wildly energetic kuduro even further. Both students return to Deeon’s dojo to show him what they’ve learned.
