DJ Series: DJ Frique revives the house beats
The man who inspired dance moves throughout the hour was DJ Frique. Also known as Terry Allen, Frique spent the better part of the '90s spinning house music throughout the city. But in the aughts, he moved a little closer to the mainstream. In recent years, he went back to his roots –as a club DJ and as a music and party producer. He also DJs a monthly residency at Crocodile Lounge on Milwaukee Avenue in Chicago’s Wicker Park.
DJ Frique will spin for Dollar Disco night Sunday at Smart Bar in Chicago.
DJ Frique's set included:
Cab Drivers, "Open Air", (Cabinet Records)
Happy Mondays, "Stinkin' Thinkin Junior Style Mix'", (Elektra Records)
Mood II Swing presents Loni Clark, "Searchin' Vocal Mix", (Groove On)
Jerome Sydenham & Kerri Chandler, "For My Portuguese Concubine", (Ibadan)
