From Ibiza to Paris to Amsterdam and beyond, Big Beat Records is certainly no stranger to anyone in the global dance music market. With an unrivaled grasp on the pulse of every big city’s musical history, Big Beat has extensive knowledge of the dance floor tracklists, both new and old, that make each destination so lovable.
To share their wealth of musical worldliness, Big Beat have been leading a musical journey through dance music’s worldwide hotspots with their esteemed compilation series, Big Beat Ignition. Next on the map is one we’ve all been waiting for: the birthplace of house music. Big Beat Ignition: Chicago is one for the books.
The Big Beat Ignition: Chicago compilation is a well-seasoned, ten-track experience of fresh, unreleased odes to the old school, pinpointing the roots of a flourishing house music culture that was born from disco. It all started in 1977 at Chicago’s infamous southside nightclub “The Warehouse,” which gave house music its name. Over the past four decades, house music has expanded to a massive global scale and has taken many generational forms. EDM as a culture would not exist without it.
