That rhythmic rumble that played all hour long wasn’t the sound of the CTA or traffic. It was the mega drum and bass beats from this week’s guest in Eight Forty-Eight's DJ Series Mega Mike. Mike Hodgen as he known during daylight hours spends most evenings on the turntables. The junglist has been bringing drums and bass to Chicago clubs and parties for some time now. 

Mega Mike performs his jungle beats Saturday at the Leprechaun Disco –location is to be announced. He’ll also headline a St. Patty’s Day dub night at Chicago’s Smart Bar on Thursday, March 17. And he spins regularly at Pint in Wicker Park.

 

 His mixes can be found on Soundcloud and Mixcloud.
