Nick Monaco
Nick Monaco
Inside this classically handsome, talented, and gregarious man exists a shy, awkward soul. But this introverted interior is the catalyst behind the upward trajectory of his career, which currently includes an impressive back catalogue of inventive, genre-defying club jams, a hectic tour schedule as a member of Crew Love, an accomplished debut album Mating Call and a captivating live show, which truly lays bare his vulnerable inner self with every performance.

Making links with the dirtybird crew initially and later, Soul Clap, helped to push Nick's career forward. It was having the creative freedom offered to him by Eli and Charlie's label, and Wolf + Lamb, that allowed him to flourish and focus on becoming the artist he'd always yearned to be; soulful, loose and free of genre constraints.

You never know who's going to answer when you come knocking on Monaco's door, it could be The Butterfly; naïve, young, wide-eyed and innocent. The Stalker; a creepy, sex-addicted voyeur. The Maintenance Man; the man you call when you're in a jam. All of whom, and more, are components of Nick's real persona.

This colourful cast of characters appear on his very first album Mating Call, an adventurous project that incorporates Nick's own voice and live instrumentation, giving it a strong organic element built around a narrative theme. This is what his album and his sound ultimately represent: an ethos with no boundaries, as opposed to a strict regimented sound.

The door opens and he steps out of his dressing room, Vogueing his way to the stage. There's an infectious, positive energy and warmth flowing out of Nick – the costume, the lipstick, the personality… he's never been more ready for this adventure. Make sure you join him and Let Your Freak Flag Fly!

Inphinity
Inphinity
After being exposed to the club scene in 1999, Inphinity knew it was his dream to be the one in the dj booth rocking the crowd. Instantly, he began spending countless hours learning the art of djing and working closely with production programs. Inphinity has always been told that he has an ear for dance music, so it ís no wonder his underground mix cds caught the attention of clubbers, club owners, and promoters and shortly after it turned into a 5 night a week dj career at Chicago's biggest, most respected clubs.
Inphinity has held some premier residencies and guest dj spots at every Chicago dance club. This has allowed him to open up and play along side numerous world renowned djs such as: Paul Van Dyk, Armin Van Buuren, Ferry Corsten, Deep Dish, ATB, Axwell, Mauro Picotto, Benny Benassi, BT, Gabriel and Dresden, Darude, Robbie Rivera, Bay Boy Bill, Max Graham, Dj Irene, Tocadisco, Richard Humpty Vision, Dj Dan, Christopher Lawrence, Oscar G, Filo & Peri, Green Velvet, Jonathan Peters, Dj Skribble, DJ Rap, and many other headlining djs. His most recent resident club, Spybar, has allowed him to craft and evolve his style to what he is now known for in Chicago: Dirty House Music.
