Boogie while you work? Well, it sounds like a good idea to me.
I have caught Rahaan live a couple of times now, and listened to many of the Rahaan mixes to be found online. This guy’s musical collection is deep, and spans boogie, funk, soul, disco, deep and jackin’ chicago house.
He got his start in the 80s as part of a crew attending early disco/house parties in Chicago, and listening to the likes of Ron Hardy and Co. It wasn’t long before he began DJing at some of the hottest venues in town.

A compilation of his best re-edits ‘Rahaan Edits Vol 1’ was released earlier this year on Spacemachine. It is available from all the usual outlets including Juno, Rushhour, and Piccadilly.
