  SOLD.

SOLD.

Two people who are wrapped up pretty deeply in pushing Chicago's dance scene forward spin DJ sets here. Jerome Derradji runs the Still Music label (and a lot of events under that banner), which embraces a wide range of dance-music sounds. Derradji's own work as a producer embodies that approach as well, from last year's tense, techno-rooted Machine Jacked 12-inch to the swinging collision of disco and dub on the more recent Brighter Days 12-inch. Glenna Fitch DJs under the name SOLD, and creates mixes that reach across ambient and avant-garde textures as capably as they do propulsive house and techno beats. In addition to their DJ work, Fitch also helps to organize the quarterly Hugo Ball series at Chicago dance-music institution Smartbar, and sculpts the techno selection at dance-centered record store Gramaphone. Madisonians Evan Woodward and Nathan Port join them here. —Scott Gordon
