Chicago DJ and producer Jordan Zawideh has a gift for steering fluidly through myriad shades of house, techno, and raw disco in his mixes. The other side of that coin is distilling things down, and Zawideh does so powerfully on his 2013 original production "Newton's Sleep." With austere percussion and a charging bass synth, the track creates a powerful groove, leaving room for slight but vivid harmonic and rhythmic nuances. His contributions to Chicago's electronic music scene also include hosting a monthly event called Acid Dreams. Zawideh will be DJing here as part of Jams, a newer series at Robinia Courtyard that already has a good track record of bringing in vital DJs from around the Midwest. Madison-based standout Ben Silver, and Nathan Port, who books the series, will be spinning at this night as well. —Scott Gordon
