Dig Deep with Voc Walters (Chicago) 240113
On this week's show we are honoured to bring you an exclusive one hour set from Chicago based DJ Voc Walters to really kick the year off in style!!
Voc first started spinning records at the age of 12. Growing up on the south side of Chicago provided him with many influences such as the Hot Mix 5, Pharris Thomas, Ron Hardy, Frankie Knuckles, Lil Louis & Steve Hurley.
Voc made a few appearances on the big stage early on. Those appearances included the Ascot Hotel and The Hyde Park Racketball Club in Chicago, and a guest appearance on WKKC Chicago in the 80's. These appearances were along side the likes of Mr. Gene Hunt, Tyree Cooper, Pharris Thomas and Lloyd Dev just to name a few...
Recent appearances at Artis's Lounge in Chicago, one with Gene Hunt and at the Output Lounge with Dave Britton and Czr. Voc has upcoming appearances as a resident at The Uptown Lounge in Chicago and very recently was a guest DJ on Chicago's Soul 106.3 FM along side of Mike Dunn, Dj Lil John and Sundance.
Voc took an absence from actively mixing for over ten years, but in 2007 he made a return and hasn't looked back. Recent influences include Larry Heard, Gene Hunt, Lloyd Dev, Julius The Mad Thinker, Jamie 326, Osunlade & Dj Emanuel.
Voc DJ style is Classic/Disco while focusing on introducing the listener to the new underground style of house. Voc's goal is to deliver a complete house experience with every mix and to leave you wanting more, and this week's mini-mix is no exception.
Tapers be ready, Voc's mix perfectly captures the kind of big room house music we love and he knows how to take the listener on a trip. Plus some freshly dug deep house from PT in the first hour...
Big up as always to DJ Izrail, head of the Dig Deep Chicago Family for the hook up.
