BJ The Chicago Kid
BJ The Chicago Kid
BJ The Chicago Kid has already had a huge year in 2017. Not only did he deliver a soulful rendition of the “Star Spangled Banner” at President Obama’s farewell address, he was nominated for not just one but three Grammy’s for his breakout 2016 album “In My Mind.” Although he didn’t sweep the Grammy’s, BJ The Chicago Kid entranced newcomers hearing his sound for the first time, where his heady, rich sound recalls an earlier era of throwback R&B and soul. Not one to keep idle, BJ The Chicago Kid released a mixtape in late 2016 called “The Lost Files: Cuffing Season,” which pays homage to the great Marvin Gaye, and is currently composing the music and theme song for FOX’s new series, “Shots Fired,” which examines the dangerous aftermath of racially charged shootings in a small Southern town.
Pell is a Los Angeles rapper/singer by way of New Orleans with his dexterous raps and easy demeanor. He recently contributed a song called “Anyone Can Get It” to the “La La Land” soundtrack, and also worked with Atlanta producer London On Da Track to release a brand new track with Red Bull Sound Select called “Patience” on Feb 21st.

Owen Bones (DJ Set)
In a city packed with hype beasts, 21-year-old electronic artist Owen Bones is Chicago’s silent killer—a vital voice in the existing sea of “me, me, me” DJ’s. By shedding the shackles of the EDM producer archetype, Bones has allowed himself to freely explore more than just music: his live show is an interactive performance art installation, and his greater mission is to help foster a creative community that always supports, never competes. And while his debut three-song EP is called Sabotage, it’s an internal fight he’s referencing—not against an enemy.

“The Sabotage EP is three songs that represent a period in my life in which my creativity, confidence, and my vision were under attack,” Bones said. “The album art, depicting a man with a gun, is meant to represent this battle. It was as if I had to fend off an armed invader inside of my psyche. I get the feeling that it was just one battle of many.”

“Super Late,” the first track off Bones’ project, represents a calm before the storm—a place of peace and contentment; “Flying Blind” reflects the downfall—a cloud of emotions and events that obscured his path; The EP closer, “Sin Eater,” epitomizes the morbid resolve, and Bones’ learning to function inside the absurd world we now inhabit. Listen to the exclusive premiere, below.
