    What started as an impromptu folky performance under a joke name “Doomsquad,” has evolved into a legitimate electronic project that incorporates everything from tribal rhythms to Eastern spirituality and dark trance music as its influence. Allie and Trev of Doomsquad joined Jesse Menendez on The MusicVox to talk about their debut LP Kalaboogie.

    Midwest Hype has spent years defying genre boundaries and getting people to dance. They stopped by the Vocalo studios to discuss what went into their new album The Time, and what listeners can expect from their 3rd LP effort.

    In this episode we’re going to be doing things a bit differently. We’re still going to bring you music, stories and conversations but they are all going to be focused on the life and legacy of the Godfather of House music - Frankie Knuckles, who recently passed away at the age of 59. Tune in to hear Chicago DJ Jesse De La Pena talk about Frankie’s impact on dance music, then hear his conversation with the man himself and finally we close the show with a special mix from Mr. Knuckles.

    Jamila and Owen of Chicago’s “adventure soul” duo M&O (formerly Milo and Otis) have been cultivating a sound that incorporates elements of brooding R&B with carefully written narratives soaked in heritage, passion and culture. Years of making music together have produced a sound that’s both groovy, warm in production, and socially conscious and poignant in its lyrical content.

    Live From Studio 10 airs Tuesdays at 8pm CST on Vocalo 90.7 FM (CHI) / 89.5 FM (NWI) and Vocalo.org, and features emerging bands and music artists from Chicago and beyond. One hour of music and interview, all live. The show is hosted by Jesse Menendez, produced by Fyodor Sakhnovski and engineered by Adam Yoffe. Subscribe to the podcast here: bitly.com/vocaloLFS10

    Every neighborhood in Chicago is as distinct as the voices it produces. Yet, if we look close enough, we’d be surprised to find the similarities between them. In our on-going #Block2Block series, we explore various neighborhoods and the flourishing cultures within them through the voices of musicians living and creating music in those neighborhoods. In this episode, we hear about Lincoln Park through the eyes and the voice of singer/songwriter David Safran.

    Fusing gritty garage blues and early punk aesthetics, The Ivorys have been a staple of Chicago’s music scene for more than a decade. In that time, the band has grown a reputation for their straight forward, catchy and driving tunes.
