The City of Chicago is known for many things such as our cuisine, skyline and much more but this town is home to some of entertainment’s finest representatives. With Chicago being the birthplace of “House” music, its surrogate parents are the many DJs who’ve embrace the culture and made the movement what it is today. There’s a quote “music hath charms to soothe a savage beast” well William Congreve the author of that quote must not have been a “Househead” because the very essence of House music brings the “beast” out of all who have grown up with the genre, in a mighty and positive way.
EarHustle411 had the pleasure of talking with one of the legendary Chosen Few DJs [stand to your feet and salute] Mr. Alan King.
For those who are not familiar with who Alan King is, allow me to assist you briefly. This man whom I call mentor, brother and friend is double for your trouble, he’s a master in the courtroom as he is a labor and employment attorney, he holds a partnership position with the firm Drinker Biddle & Reath, LLP and he is a sure-fire MONSTER on the 1s and 2s [that’s turntables in case you missed it]. In a nutshell, Alan King is THE BUSINESS!!
EarHustle411 caught up with Alan at the Chicago Football Classic where 5 of the 7 Chosen Few DJs (Jesse Saunders & Tony Hatchett were unavailable) had the honor of keeping the crown hyped with the sweet sound of House music. I can say from the reactions of the crowd they had a blast. Myself and Media Correspondent Jameisha Trice got our boogie on right down to the last track!!
Check out Alan & Jameisha sharing a few laughs together:
Myself and Jameisha being the quintessential househeads, we were simply in awe when Alan hit the turntables and mesmerized the crowd. He has this way of making a virtual Monet with his talents as a DJ is nothing short of amazing and he broadens his strokes with every knob he turns on the mixer. Alan is an example of living greatness and the fact that he is so humble just solidifies it. He greets his fans with the warmest smile, the kindest heart and a hot like fire beat that is sure to take you higher!!
EarHustle411 is so grateful to Alan for taking the time to speak with us. We are huge fans of the Chosen Few DJs…hmmmm who knows you just may see EarHustle411 as one of the media outlets at the Chosen Few Picnic in 2015 [Hey Alan can we make that happen??].
In all seriousness, we wish Alan King and the other members of the Chosen Few DJs all the best that life has to offer and we will always be keeping our ears to the streets waiting on what’s to come from the crew.
Alan keep doing what you do, from the courtroom to the dance floor, you’re alright with us!!
