Kerri Chandler takes over our main hall. The deep house pioneer is one of the genre’s most revered practitioners. His richly expressive productions, enthralling DJ sets and flair for performance remain unparalleled. He returns to Knockdown Center following a masterclass in the Ruins this summer. Chicago’s Ron Trent is a one of Chandler’s most esteemed peers: his darkly soulful sound is grounded in the house music of his hometown, but has just as many fans in techno. He remains an exemplar to this day.
