Episode 44 - Duke Shin Live from Freakeasy HQ Finale (2 of 2) feat. Derrick Carter 9.29.18 (closing morning set)
November 16, 2018 06:29 PM PST
Recorded live on 9.29.18 at Freakeasy at HQ Finale (2 of 2) feat. Derrrick Carter...
As the final (listed) DJ at the second of two farewell to HQ parties, emotions were high and perhaps reflected in the mixes and selections--which were mostly comprised of favorites from the last 10 years of Freakeasy events at the beloved loft.
"Officially" closing down the party at 8am, I was followed by worst-kept secret, another highly anticipated Derrick Cater FE encore! Had so much fun playing (might've shed a tear or two) before dancing it all out to DC, once again, taking the whole congregation to church on a Sunday morning... Bless you, Freakeasy... thanks for the past 10 years, here's to whatever comes next!
01. Infinity Ink, Mr V - The Rush (Richy Ahmed Remix)

Podcast home of Chicago-based DJ DUKE SHIN.
They say a picture is worth a thousand words, but what is the value of a beat? A rhythm? A melody? Duke Shin doesn't have any of those answers for you, but what he does have is a musical arsenal of the loud and strange, gentle and nuanced, mid tempo slow burns and torrid electronic freak outs--all wrapped up in deep house love, driven with a cybernetic techno heart. And his search to answer the question in finding the value of music has lead him to DJing many clubs, bars, lounges and loft parties including favorites like Smart Bar, the Museum of Contemporary Art and the monthly Freakeasy parties in Chicago. Somewhere along the way, Duke has had the good fortune in opening for electronic dance music luminaries like M.A.N.D.Y., Seth Troxler, Holy Ghost!, Pär Grindvik and Moby, and has enjoyed playing afterparties for bands like the Dandy Warhols, TV On The Radio, Jamie Lidell and Nouvelle Vague. When he's not busy DJing, Duke also works as a music journalist, and has had countless features, reviews and interviews published in Resident Advisor, BPM Magazine, New City Chicago (where he previously served as Clubs Editor for over 2 years) and CityPages MN. With an ever-evolving sound, Duke never slows down, continuing his search for musical enlightenment while delighting (and occasionally befuddling) ardent dance floor denizens and lovers of the eclectic mix. Aside from current guest appearances, you can also catch Duke at his REFRACT monthly residency (along with co-resident Merrick Brown) at new hotspot Primary Nightclub, and at most of the infamous Freakeasy events...
