Gene Hunt-25 Years Of Djing
Gene Huntís first release was on the infamous TRAX imprint and he swiftly followed it up with a string of tracks that were personified by a strong influence from Detroit. Deep strings mixed with intricate drum patterns were his trademark and his Melodies EP for Nepenta was one of the labels first hits. A Chicago house music pioneer, and World Class deejay, Gene has collaborated with a range of critically-acclaimed artists and producers, including Adam Beyer, Cari Lekebusch, Carl Cox, Paul Johnson, Farley Jackmaster Funk, Frankie Knuckles, and Ron Hardy. A key contributor who helped shape house and techno music worldwide, Gene is no doubt a true innovator of the Chicago house sound.
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.
Paul Johnson's musical resume is both extensive and impressive; he released his first record in 1990 titled, "Overload" on Dance Mania Records. During this time, Paul quickly made a name for himself as a producer, responsible for many of the now famous DJ/Producers that we all know and love. Paul's innovative and inspiring production work gained industry recognition as the go to guy. Paul has released over 200 E.P's himself as well as a vast amount of music for some of the most consistently underground dance labels, all prior to signing with Peacefrog Records. Paul also boasts 12" releases on the likes of Cajual / Relief and Dance Mania which led to his debut album release, "Bump Talkin", in 1994. "Bump Talkin" and the follow up release, "Feel The Music", became two of the most talked about releases of their time.
In 1998, Paul Johnson released his dance floor killer "Get Get Down" which sold over 3 million copies worldwide. "Get Get Down" was an international mega hit; its smooth melodic beats could be heard in clubs from Chicago to Ibiza, quickly gaining crossover success. Paul achieved record book notoriety, earning him a spot in the Guinness Book of World Records, for the most said word in a song. "Get Get Down" was also licensed on more than 100 CD and house compilations worldwide.
