Soon after, the open-minded Chicago based DJ moved forward to the energetic electro-sound producing his first electro-vinyl Slip & Slide with Micha Moor for the Chicago label Scream and Shout Recordings, which paved directly the way onto the playlists of reputable DJ celebrities.

Being a short distance from Chicago, many of the legends frequented Milwaukee, influencing its own small scene. Experiencing much of this from an early age, The Glamour’s approach became highly influenced by the past. They attempt to meld these classic sounds with a current approach, creating a unique mixture all their own. (8) Photo credit: www.myspace.com/theglamour
