Paul Johnson Bio:
Born and raised on the south side of Chicago, the birthplace of house music, Paul Johnson, started making waves in the music community at the early age of thirteen. In the summer of 1984, Paul Johnson taught himself how to spin after watching his cousin Marc spin and scratch in his bedroom. As a self taught artist, Paul’s pulsating energy and passion are apparent in all his work. In high school while his peers were holding down after school jobs, Paul was a popular radio DJ. Raw talent, dedication and a deep love for house music have made Paul Johnson one of the most sought after DJ’s in the world.
Fresh off his Farris Wheel release, Housepitality introduces recent Oakland transplant BAI-EE as our newest resident Dj. A long time Chicago area Dj/producer, in 1997 he co-founded True Family Unit productions and since worked with or played alongside many Chicago greats. His Dj sets encompass the kind of diversity that comes with an education in Chicago House Music; deep, acid, disco house/edits and classic vocals.
Tyrel Williams Bio:
Tyrel has been a mainstay of Chicago’s underground House scene for years. He began mixing records in 1999. Soon later he landed a job at Gramaphone Records where he spent the last decade building a mighty collection of 12” dance records. He spent 2009-2011 building his Acid Test residency at Smart Bar, which is an ongoing all vinyl House / Techno weekly dedicated to the true art form of DJing. Guests have included Miles Maeda, IZ and DIZ, Derrick Carter, Tevo Howard, Traxx, and Justin Long. Tyrel has recently moved to San Francisco to take his DJing and Production to the next level.
