If you find yourself in Chicago’s Logan Square neighborhood on a Sunday during the summer, there is no better place to be than the corner of Logan Blvd and Rockwell St. Since the beginning of the pandemic, Vibes on Logan has organized a monthly pop-up series that has shined light on the best vinyl DJs, creatives/vendors, and record stores that Chicago has to offer. The Vibes curators and resident DJs include DJ D.R.E.A.M., Material, and Shazam Bangles and hope to kick off VOL’s fourth season this Spring starting in April or May, weather permitting. Follow @vibesonlogan on IG to stay in the know.
Teacher by day, and DJ by night, D.R.E.A.M. is a purveyor of hypnotic dance grooves that create those feel-good vibrations. Having grown up going to roller rinks and basement house parties, D.R.E.A.M. possess a deep knowledge of Chicago dance culture. Today, his lived experience translates into sets that infuses this music history and takes you on a musical journey through dance classics and forgotten gems.
Born in Chicago during a visionary era of DJ culture, Michael Reuter, better known as Shazam Bangles, has consistently found sanctuary in music.
Somewhat of a late bloomer, he quietly arrived on the scene nearly 20 years ago and quickly became a catalyst in helping to advance Chicago’s turntablist culture as a member of the influential scratch DJ crew, Cutz On Cuts. He has rocked stages and held his own alongside a wide array of people he looks up to such as Animal Collective, Big Boi (OutKast), Bonobo, DJ Krush, Edan, Invisibl Skratch Piklz, Nightmares On Wax, Prince Paul, People Under The Stairs, Washed Out, etc. He has held down many residencies throughout the city and can currently be found at Easy Does It for his Logan Square Disco dance party. He can also be heard rocking on the radio the first Friday of every month on 91.1 fm as part of Vocalo’s DJ Collective’s Friday Night DJ Series. He was selected to be part of the Collective after winning an open format “Quest For The Best” DJ Competition between some of Chicago’s finest talents in 2012. As the beat continues on…
