After successfully releasing two singles in 2020, ‘Amazing Pt 2’ and ‘Wake Up’, Chicago DJ Jeff Da illest has re-released his classic mixtape Late Nite Experience Vol. 1.
The mixtape, originally released in 2004, features 23 tracks and a few dozen emcees, helping to create one of the hottest mixtapes out of Chicago in recent memory. The mixtape quickly sold out locally and has been out of print for a few years. It is now available on all digital streaming platforms for the first time.
Spinning records in clubs and at private events in the Chicagoland area since 1995, JDI is revered by both fans and peers for his vast knowledge of several genres of music. His experience in spinning Hip-Hop, House, Soul, Neo-Soul, R&B, Rare Grooves, Jazz, Disco, Gospel, Pop, and Rap has given him the edge over other local DJ’s that limit themselves to specializing in one particular style.
The JDI experience is impactful and felt by all that hear him, earning him such acclaims as “The Hottest DJ” in Ozone Magazine’s April 2007 edition, two nominations for the Chicago TRUTH Awards Hottest Club DJ and a feature in Rolling Out Magazines’s 2009 issue. He has shared the stage with national recording artists such as Ne-yo, Fantasia, Yummy Bingham, Kindred & the Family Soul, Dwele, AZ, Teedra Moses, Lady Bug Mecca from the Hip Hop group Digable Planets; renowned producer 9th Wonder, DJ Jazzy Jeff, DJ ‘S &S’ & Grammy Award winning DJ Steve ‘Silk’ Hurley, as well as actor Idris Elba.
