Dig Deep with DJ Izrail (Chicago) #2 310512

On this weeks show DJ Izrail, head of the Chicago Dig Deep family, returns with an exclusive 1 hour long DJ mix to celebrate his birthday week (happy birthday for Tuesday 29th May!)

DJ Izrail has been a student and a follower of the legendary Lil Louis since 1987. Before that, in 1985, he started doing pause mixes on cassette tapes trying to mimic Farley Jackmaster Funk from the original Hot Mix Five on WBMX. That year Izail’s parents bought him his first pair of turntables.

At age 15 he was opening parties for Dave Merritt & Vinny Divine at various club house parties. These gigs opened the door for DJ Izrail to spin at many of the house music parties at Main Street roller rink...

Around the same time DJ Izrail started mixing on WDGC FM (a high school radio station). Since then Izrail has played on numerous FM Radio stations and at numerous night clubs in the city of Chicago. In 1998 he started featuring his mixes on

In 2000 DJ Izrail started djing outside of Chicago. One of the livest spots he has played at is the Queen Night Club in Paris ‘Respect Is Burning’. He has also done a mix for Nova Radio in France, played at Belgium’s ‘Fame sucks’, and did a live mix for the city’s Studio Brussel.

We broadcast DJ Izrail's first exclusive mini-mix back in December 2011.

As ring leader of the Dig Deep Chicago family, DJ Izrail has made it possible for us to broadcast exclusive mixes from Gene Hunt, DJ Boogienite The 7inch 45 KingNeal Howard, Dave D'Master Merritt, Boo Williams and Al 'Hot Mix' Holmes whilst we have Voc Walters, Lloyd Dev, K' Alexi Shelby, Maurice Joshua and Walter Merlin Jones yet to come...
