Channelling the spirit of Chicago DJ pioneers like Ron Hardy, Farley Jackmaster Funk and the Hot Mix 5, Rahaan has been laying down sets spanning everything from jacking house, deep disco, boogie and funk since the 80`s. From underground basement parties on the southside of Chicago, to playing at big nights in the UK, Europe and Japan, his skill and energy behind the decks has brought him out from the Chicago underground and onto the world stage, gaining him a cult following.
Rahaan is well known for his edits which have been released on labels including StillLove4Music, KAT and Jisco & a compilation of his best work to date on Spacemachine Recordings.
Rahaan is without doubt one of the most traveled and in demand disco disc jockeys on the circuit, and according to the Redbull Academy ‚he’s not only a Dj, but a Dj’s Dj.‘
Rahaan’s been spinning music since the 80s, he got his schooling in disco music when he heard Ron Hardy play at the Music Box in his native Chicago. At the time other Djs like Pierre or Frankie Knuckles were throwing parties too, but it was the unique fashion Ron Hardy served up his disco and house – raw and real – that had left a long lasting impression on Rahaan. Since then, the brother from the Windy city has amassed a more than respectable record collection, mixing up the rare disco and classic always keeping his choice dance floor friendly. Over the years Rahaan has personalised plenty of classic tracks by transforming them into his trademark edits in a similar way Ron Hardy and Theo Parrish have done, with the only exception that he keeps close to the disco sound in his output, occasionally dipping into soul, boogie, jazz funk and funk territory. But above all, the essence of Rahaan’s trademark sound is still undeniably ‚Chicago‘ in its energy.
