DJ CarlsBad

is a genre-bending open format DJ who began DJing prior to the formative years of Chicago House Music in the early 1980’s. Hailing from Chicago’s north side and having worked alongside some of Chicago’s most legendary DJ’s, DJ CarlsBad was exposed to and was known to play a large variety of musical genres. He was never satisfied with settling on just one style. He is an eclectic DJ who stays true to his motto by “playing what he wants, when he wants.” This eclectic style is most evident in his mixes where he can be found mixing genres in a way that shatters the traditional idea that mixes be grouped by genre. The listener will be taken on a musical journey and there is no time to be locked to a genre when the party is packed. Chicago’s legendary house superstar Mr. Lee recently approached DJ CarlsBad at an event and commented that he never heard a DJ mix rock music with house music at a party and “make it work.” DJ CarlsBad breaks the rules and you never quite know what to expect next. It may very well be a song that you love but never thought you would hear in a mix. People don’t limit their genres, so why should DJ CarlsBad?

Mackie C

Started my love affair with music in 1983 freshman year high school, formed a dj crew with high school buddies, Dynamite Dean (2 young bro’s) and Dan Barnes, Together we were, “Midnite Jam Sound Productions”, we did mostly backyard and school auditorium gigs for a while then we parted ways and I met Joe Scordato from the, “Super Elite Dj Team”, and he introduced me to Charlie Martinez from Party People productions along with Zeze and Mike from “Midnight Illusion”, after doing many gigs with these guys I met Sly “Hula Hula” Fox who recruited me into the Chicago Cutting Crew in 1987 alongside Jackmaster Jay, Lady Trixx, Albert “ready to rock”, Tito “ Party Time”, and Devious Dave we carved our name in the history books as one of the best dj teams ever, as we fast forward to today the status quo has not changed as we might have new members but the talent pool is second to none.


A Dj that has Old School roots in Chicago begining in the late 80s "NAY" as everyone calls him, has been spinning for over 25 years. He would play many all ages dance clubs, Nightclubs, House parties and was very active in the mobile dj scene for much of that time. These mixes come from my library. Some from cassete tapes and minidiscs.

In early 2000 he began music production and started learning the craft and all that comes with it. After some time in the studio crafting his style he decided that now is the time to start releasing music. Now in 2017 he is ready to release tracks that have built up in the library for the last 17 years. "I have alot of Hybrid House tracks that DJs, Dance Music Lovers, and anyone in the industry should give a listen to." You will hear the old with new and experimental stuff. "I like to call myself a left field producer." I dont even know what I"m making next. One thing about NAY"Trixx" is you will hear something different everytime.
