Chicago house vets Derrick Carter, Mark Farina and DJ Sneak have all gone their separate ways—Carter is still in Chi-town, while Sneak lives in Toronto and Farina has called San Fran home for years—but the three share a heritage of Windy City–style jacking rhythms that define them to this day. Last summer, the old friends played their first-ever three-way tag-team set at Belgium’s Tomorrowland festival—and on Friday, May 17, the triumverate will be re-creating that date with a back-to-back-to-back set at Highline Ballroom. TONY managed to catch up with the house heroes via a multiline phone chat to talk about the upcoming gig.
Time Out New York: Having all three of you on the phone at once makes me feel like I’m at a veteran-Chicago-DJ convention.
Time Out New York: Yes, I feel like that’s accomplishment in itself, and that we could call it quits right now.
Time Out New York: Wait a minute—while I have you all, we might as well chat. You guys go back quite a bit, don’t you?
Time Out New York: Curse all you want.
Time Out New York: I’m guessing that you guys have all played on the same bill before.
Time Out New York: But the Tomorrowland festival was the first time you had done a back-to-back-to-back set?
Time Out New York: What do you mean?
Time Out New York: Luckily, the boat didn’t sink or anything, and you “wove together the entire history of house over two magical hours,” according to the press release.
Time Out New York: Were you bumping into each other at all?
Time Out New York: We’ll be looking for a gang-bang situation when you’re playing here in NYC.
Time Out New York: The New York gig will be the first time that you’ve done this since Tomorrowland. Since you’ve had time to think about it, will there be any preplanning involved this time around?
Time Out New York: Derrick, I knew you were a dog guy—but I didn’t know you had seven of them!
Time Out New York: Sneak, you have two kids, right?
Time Out New York: And you, Mark?
Time Out New York: One thing I’ve always admired about all three of you is the way that you’ve all stayed true to your sounds. Not that you play the same exact music you did 20 years ago, but you’ve certainly managed to stay away from any short-lived trends over your careers.
Time Out New York: Does the fact that you’ve all stuck with your styles over the years make it easier to play together?
Time Out New York: I don’t think I really have to ask you this—especially you, Sneak, given what happened in Miami—but has there ever been any temptation to go for the bucks and jump on the EDM bandwagon?
Time Out New York: I guess the hope is that at least a small percentage of kids who are into EDM will take the time to find out more about the music and its history.
Time Out New York: As you said before, you guys have all played on the same bill—but have you ever done so in New York?
Time Out New York: Perhaps you can whip out some rave-era classics!
Time Out New York: Do you feel it’s part of your job to turn kids on to music like that?
Time Out New York: The Martinez Brothers are obviously a special case, but I’ve found that when young clubbers hear the old stuff, they’re usually into it.
Time Out New York: And here you are, years later, all playing together.
Time Out New York: And that’s what house music is supposed to be, right?
Verboten: Derrick Carter + DJ Sneak + Mark Farina is at Highline Ballroom Friday, May 17.

After years of producing music under various guises, Jon Charnis found his true calling in the slower, darker, and deeper spheres of House music. The re-invention manifested beyond music as the former DC native relocated to the city of Los Angeles while launching his new moniker (his actual birth name). From then on it didn’t take long to make his impact felt. His track ‘Prophecy’ was spotted by Innervisions boss, Dixon, who signed the track to his prestigious Berlin based label after road testing it at some of the world’s premier parties.

Wiggle on down!
CLUBZ take a look at the hugely influential Wiggle record label who celebrate their 19th Birthday on May 25th at The Paramount Club
WHEN Terry Francis and Nathan Coles started throwing parties, it was pretty much a reaction to their circumstances.
Already committed to London’s fledging acid house scene, and both influenced by rare groove and up-tempo soul, they wanted to do something for themselves, just for their mates, with DJs they liked.
Acid House pioneer and ‘Godfather of Tech House’ Eddie Richards was duly installed as their resident.
And thus the legend was born.
Held initially on a monthly basis at a variety of often secret locations and promoted strictly through word of mouth, the club has grown and developed through it’s policy of promoting the original ethos of the acid house movement; it’s sound system booms, it’s atmosphere unpretentious and where absolutely everybody is having a great time.
Nearly two decades later these three roving Ambassadors of Tech House are still igniting dancefloors around the world with their unique fusion of cutting edge House and Techno, ensuring that Brand Wiggle, the catch-all term covering record label, clubnight, artist name and attitude – remains at the forefront of people’s consciousness.
A 10 year residency at Fabric, arguably the UKs most important and influential underground nightclub, and Terry’s installation as weekly resident there, is testamant to the far reaching global impact that the Wiggle brand has had.
Numerous world tours have seen thus unholy trinity of Tech House Titans touch down in major cities around the world preaching the Tech House gospel to their adoring disciples.
Constantly striving to stay one step ahead and with their fingers firmly on the pulse of the underground, Wiggle’s sweat-soaked Warehouse marathons have played host to some of biggest and highly respected names in the DJ firmament including Stacey Pullen, Richie Hawtin, Maetrik, Layo & Bushwacka, Richie Hawtin, Pure Science,Tigerskin, Maetrik, Audiofly, Simon Baker, Dachshund, Saytek, Jay Tripwire, Alex Celler, Richard Grey, Mr.C, Stimming, Abe Duque, Glimpse, Geddes, Raymundo Rodriguez, Dj Three, Todd Bodine, D’Julz, Corrie, Geddes, JB, Mr G, Cesar Merveille, Liz Edwards, Asad Rizvi, Grant Dell, Felver, Lewis Ryder, Clive Henry, Colin Dale, Dave Mothersole, The Pushamann, Get Fucked, Tangun, The Freaks, Claire Ripley, Arnaud Le Texier, Kenny Hawkes, Magnus Asberg, J. Jeff, Bob De Rosa, Big Hair and Little Mike.
It seems incredible to think that Wiggle, arguably London’s best underground tech-house night, has reached full adult age.
This hugely influential Wiggle collective Nathan Coles, Terry Francis and Eddie Richards have helped define the late-night, bass-driven house sound that is now so ubiquitous across dancefloors around the world.
When Wiggle started they were instrumental in defining a new sound where the Jack of Chicago and the Machine Funk of Detroit and Berlin were seamlessly melded with the Deep house of New York and London.
It’s now 2013 and Deep House/Tech-House music’s popularity has never been more apparent.
As Wiggle prepare to celebrate their 19th birthday on the 25th of may, in the rarified atmosphere of The Paramount club 384 feet up in the central London skyline they can be justly proud of the mark they have made in clubland.
