Held at Chant, a trendy Asian Fusion restaurant in Chicago’s trendy Hyde Park neighborhood, the restaurant is beautifully decorated with Asian-inspired décor and a small but efficient bar. Hosted by Ronda Flowers and Koko, Soulful House Saturdays attracts a crowd as trendy, eclectic and musically selective as the Hyde Park neighborhood it is located in. They are regulars who love the vibe at Chant. Soulful house music, stiff martinis, and delicious cocktails create an environment perfect for socializing with friends.
Soulful House Saturdays features resident DJs Torin Edmond and Alan King. They shut the restaurant down for an evening full of soulful house music. Torin and Alan are a synchronized team effortlessly bouncing off one another to create a seamless blend of two diverse DJ styles, and the result is an evening full of soul. Both DJs took the crowd on an international journey through music with sets laced with soulful rhythms from Africa and Latin America. Torin Edmond opened the evening with a powerful set full of music with strong instrumentation. Torin plays with an effortless cool, Gradually building his musical set, he doesn’t push or rush it. He understands how to build the music up and create dancer anticipation. With each seamless blend, the crowd wanted more. Alan King, the “Clark Kent” of house, is an accomplished attorney by day and an equally accomplished DJ by night. He closed the evening with a set rooted in soul. Clearly an intellectual, he approaches his set with intention and purpose. His sets are always full of messages of love, peace, and positivity. As the time reached the wee hours of Sunday Morning, he took us to church with music that inspired and gave hope. He had the jam-packed crowd at Chant shouting in musical agreement.
The Saturday Finale at Chant was an enchanted evening of incredible music, positive vibrations, and soulful rhythms.
Until next time,
See you on a Dance Floor
