Equator Club • "Set U Off"

Any fan of dance music in Chicago should make themselves aware of Equator Club, skilled DJ and producer, and purveyor of grooves that keep that night going long after the bars have closed. His music has a naturalistic quality with an emphasis on rhythm, never going overboard with the aesthetic bells and whistles. "Set U Off" is the new track from him and a recent personal favorite, subtly trapping off the walls. Equator Club always demonstrates a commanding use of space in his music and "Set U Off" repeats this, expertly knocking out a killer mid-song breakdown. The bass-line quietly envelopes the track before he goes back to the crisp high-hats and synths that work all too well.

Listen to "Set U Off" and it's immediately clear, Equator Club is true to his name and meant to be seen live. No simple bedroom producer, this is an artist who loves to perform and can hang with the best of them once the lights dim and the records are spinning. And you're in luck, because he will be performing at Canvas, this Friday, April 1. Equator club will be spinning b2b sets with Sky Society, sure to be a movement-inducing madhouse. Tickets here!
