REES URBAN

Rees Urban hails from Chicago, where he's more than a 20-year veteran in the DJ booth. Since his humble beginnings, he’s maintained his idealistic values as a DJ from his 1st shows playing VFW halls in Chicago in the mid 90s to clubs & raves across the US and shortly thereafter at clubs and festivals overseas. He's since headlined events across 5 continents including playing on a float at Berlin's Love Parade in the year 2000 (to an audience of approximately 1.3 million people).

As a producer he's accumulated over 100 releases on several cult labels like Dance Mania, Tresor, Underground Construction, Pro-Jex, IHR & Primate (under the names Rees Urban, DJ Urban and his duo Pair of Jacks with longtime friend, Angel Alanis). Furthermore his productions have been in regular rotation by a vast variety of industry icons including Carl Cox, Derrick Carter, DJ Funk, Dave Clarke, Bad Boy Bill, DJ Rush and John Digweed, demonstrating his versatility and respect by dance music’s elite.

In 2014 he launched his collaboration project, Rubb Sound System with Brian Boncher where they’ve remixed legendary artists like Frankie Knuckles & Jamie Principle, Lil’ Louis, Marshall Jefferson, Steve Silk Hurley, Farley Jackmaster Funk, Armando, Robert Armani and DJ Deeon. Along the way they've garnered support by DJs including Grant Nelson, Roger Sanchez, DJ Spen, Huxley, Mark Knight, Hercules & Love Affair, Roy Davis Jr. and Danny Rampling; who are finding RSS releases in their sets and charts.

To round things off, Urban heads up his own labels Jackinthebox, Urban Audio & Public Housing that are dedicated to House, Techno and Ghetto House, respectively. With the little free time that remains he's also a consistent contributor, writer and reviewer for Chicago based House Music publication 5 Magazine.

As DJ Rush explains, “Urban, in my eyes, captures the culture, the excitement of the moment and is the real thing.”
