Nothing compares to Chicago in the summertime, and for this month’s LUNCH BREAK, we will be soaking up some sun on the rooftop of ESTATE ULTRA BAR for a special FARRIS WHEEL SHOWCASE featuring the label boss himself GENE FARRIS, along with Chicago favorites STEVE GERARD, DUSTIN SHERIDAN and JEROME BAKER. Join us on Friday, July 27th as we dance with our friends at BEATPORT, munch on rooftop selections by Estate, and sip on frozen drinks by MONACO VODKA & COCKTAILS. For those who can’t escape the office, you can still join us by tuning in to React Presents’ Facebook page at 1:00pm CST.
Known as one of Chicago’s dance music icons, Gene Farris has become a staple in the evolving house and techno scene around the globe. At a young age, Gene began playing Chicago’s legendary underground warehouse parties where he quickly gained recognition. Fast forward twenty-something years later – Gene has a lengthly list of accomplishments under his belt – including seven albums, over twenty tracks on Relief and Cajual Records, and a number of collaborations with Green Velvet, Loco Dice, Riva Starr, Jamie Jones, and many more.
On top of that, Gene started his very own record label, Farris Wheel Records. The house and techno label launched in 1998 and has well over 100 releases from Gene himself, Derrick Carter, Sonny Fodera, Glenn Underground, Jay-J, Sneak, and Boo Williams, just to name a few. Gene is passionate about growing the label, producing bangers and sharing the wealth of house music with the world for years to come.
Don’t miss the Farris Wheel Showcase making its Lunch Break debut at 1:00pm CST this Friday, July 27th. We cordially welcome all friends, fans, and industry colleagues to join in the fun, whether in person or wherever good internet is available!
