On WEDNESDAY, AUGUST 9th, STUNNA presents a very special installment of 'THE GREENROOM' on BASSDRIVE Radio. In this week's edition, STUNNA hands over the reins to veteran CHICAGO-based selector DJ GLYDE, as he presents an exclusive 3 HOUR guest mix during the show.
DJ GLYDE (aka PHIL McFARLAND) has been a fixture of CHICAGO's vibrant music scene since the late 1990s. He began his career as a DJ in 1996, spinning vinyl at college house parties and then small clubs in CHICAGO. From the beginning, GLYDE was focused on a blend of JUNGLE, HIP HOP and DUB. He quickly gained a following among CHICAGO's underground music community with the launch of 'THE SEMINAR' (a popular weekly event, featuring local and international talent) and began playing at larger venues across the city. Over the years, GLYDE has continued to push the boundaries of the JUNGLE and DRUM+BASS genres, incorporating elements of DUBSTEP, REGGAE, and other styles into his sets.
As co-founder of BASS BY THE POUND, GLYDE produced and promoted more than 600 events, hosting artists from all over the world. BBP enjoyed great success and notoriety, including recognition in 2003 as “NIGHTCLUB PROMOTERS OF THE YEAR” by URB magazine. In addition to his work as a DJ and promoter, GLYDE has also been an advocate for CHICAGO's WEST TOWN neighborhood. He has produced the 'WEST FEST' DJ stage since 2006, with proceeds benefitting the chamber of commerce and local schools.
GLYDE continues to create and release new mixes and old skool edits on his SOUNDCLOUD page as well as promote one-off events around the city. He remains a beloved figure in CHICAGO's music scene as a pioneering JUNGLE/DRUM+BASS DJ and promoter.
Join us this session of 'THE GREENROOM' as DJ GLYDE makes his debut appearance on the program, armed with a brand new 3 HOUR guest mix featuring some of his favorite upfront and classic tracks from around the globe. Tune in!
