Thanks for finding me. From the days of building the ultimate mix tape, running a pirate radio station, shipping recordings off to friends in the 80s, I was born into multi-media. In the 90s, I had the great opportunity to hit broadcasting head on after my freshman year of highschool working at the local public access cable station "MetroVision" with a 100,000 subscriber base. There I was schooled in the premise of linear and what was cutting edge non-linear editing techniques at the time. I spent 5 and a half years there working with various industry-standard digital and analog broadcast media. During this time, I spent learning the facets of being a DJ as my friends and I built and broadcast a crude FM pirate radio station out of a garage in the suburbs of Chicago on the south side. During such time, I spent 2 and a half years at the Illinois College of Broadcasting and Columbia working with various broadcasting techniques, and understanding sound / stage engineering. I moved from there to work at a local college for 9 and a half years as a Multimedia Specialist and Network technician. I was blessed with what was to help further my career as a mixmaster, technical genius, and solidified myself in the ways of an Information Technology Engineer which I am today. Over the past 17 years I've been playing at various venues from the occasional sports bar DJ, to mix-master. Moving to the South Side of Chicago in the late 90s solidified my love for Chicago House Music. It's been a part of my beating heart ever since. Over the years, I've made many acquaintences, and have mixed along side of Chicago's finest. I am blessed to have Chicago House in my soul. It's helped me understand the world can exist with one music for all. House music has no color, no race, no hate, no anger. It's pure love, soul, body, spirit, and holy.
For the last 8 years with the onset of higher internet speeds and better home computers, I've built streaming/gaming PCs and utilized my learned tool-sets to spread the word of Chicago House all over the world. From living in the basement with mom, to each apartment I've lived in, I've found a way to stream a show almost on a weekly basis. With each show I stream, I always learn something new and attempt to apply it to each weekly episode I broadcast.
Today's 7th version of my studio is by far the most robust studio I've built as I affectionately dub it "The Logan Square Ministry of Defense"
The 'LSMOD" is my streaming conduit that helps me escape and share my passion for Chicago House with the world. I want to introduce to the world a show that NO OTHER DJ has streamed before. I don't just play a show and stream it, I heavily produce it with collective thought, and pure passion for all things cutting-edge technology.
I would like to invite you to join me every Saturday where I stream LIVE from the Logan Square Ministry of Defense.
You will find me live on www.undergroundhouse.tv or http://www.ustream.tv/channel/logan-square-ministry-of-defense-with-dj-psyko-m1.
My show starts promptly at 4PM and ends at 7PM Central Standard Time.
Recordings of each show are available after each session.
If you can't make it off the bat, please take the time to enjoy my crafted mixes. They are the life-blood of which beats through my veins, and are infected with the Chicago House that pulses through my body.
With all that said, thank you from the bottom of my Chicago heart.
Each comment, Like, Share, and thanks means a ton to me.
My listeners are the fuel in which fuels my personifications and revelations on which technological, and musical path I am to embark next.
DJ Psyko-M1 of the Logan Square Ministry of Defense.
