Zebo | North Coast Music Festival 2013

With a motto like “Chi or Die” the highly regarded DJ Zebo backs it up with his numerous contributions to the Windy City. His eclectic mixes can often be heard at The Mid where he serves as resident DJ. Zebo is also one half of Hot Dog Records, which features various styles of dance music from Chicago artists. Oh, and he also teaches two courses (Club DJ Pt. 1 and Advanced Pt. 2) at his alma mater, Columbia College. Like any good professor, Zebo schools listeners in the old school while working in a fresh take on today’s remixes. Known for his diverse style, you can expect to hear anything from dubstep to rock. Last year’s opening Lollapalooza performance for Black Sabbath even featured some metal tracks and burlesque dancers. No matter what genre he’s spinning, you can expect a high energy performance with some unexpected styles thrown in from the veteran DJ. (Friday, August 30, 2013)
