About Bad Dagger:
Disco. Metal. House. These three words form the mission statement adopted by the dance powerhouse experience that is Bad Dagger. Bursting onto the scene in 2012, Bad Dagger began with Cameron Reel (music production, synths and bass guitar) and Eddie Roodvoets (drums, samples, and triggers). This duo stunned and entertained audiences with there unique brand of Disco/Metal/House or Electrosexymetal, as their style has been called. Extremely danceable, this act has a tendency to switch gears without warning. This makes it possible to touch on a wide array of genres in each set. Bad Dagger makes use of this versatility with relentless passion and energy.
In the fall of 2016, Brice Jones (guitar) was added to the lineup. Without knowing how a guitar player would fit in with their style, Cameron and Eddie were immediately floored by the element that Brice brings to the music. Brice’s instincts and artistic taste were spot on right away, adding a crucial ands melodic balance to the band. Although they have similar influences in music, each member has a unique taste and sensibility. This helps add to the evolution of the unique brand of music they have developed.
Bad Dagger – The world’s original innovators of and only true source for pure, high-grade Electrosexymetal.
About Slippin Jimmy:
Slippin Jimmy knows what it takes to turn house heads onto darker styles of techno. After playing a role in expanding the Bloomington, Indiana scene, the DJ has carved out a niche in Chicago affording him opportunities far and wide.
He hasn’t sacrificed quality to reach a wider audience. His happy, upbeat and positive energy draws in passive fans, but his selections still hold the attention of any diehard. His work as one of the core members of Chicago promoter MTM Productions has further elevated his career, landing him gigs at festivals like Dirtybird Campout and My House Music Festival.
Slippin Jimmy’s own history in the Windy City dates all the way back to his birth. Born Evan Longhi, he relocated with his family to Northwest Indiana as a child. Having played the drums since he was only two years old, his origins as a percussionist suited him well when he took up disc jockeying later on.
As he came of age he took trips to Chicago to visit his cousin, who first introduced him to underground dance music. Sneaking into mainstays like Smartbar and Spybar exposed him to sophisticated sounds that would eventually form the foundation of his musical aesthetic. It only made sense that he would go on to include performances at such clubs in his résumé later in life.
When at long last he found himself behind the decks, Slippin Jimmy identified an untapped market. While attending Indiana University he recognized the need for regular house music events in Bloomington. After playing a role in helping push forward the city’s house and techno scene, he relocated to Chicago at long last. His efforts led him to like minds in an emerging collective called MTM Productions; shortly after they formed he became a key member of their operation.
2019 saw Slippin Jimmy come into his own like never before. In addition to playing at Chicago clubs like Spybar, Sound-Bar and The Mine Music Hall as well as The Patron Saint in Indianapolis, he has performed at such gatherings as Dirtybird Campout and My House Music Festival. He has also worked with Chicago crews Unlisted, Obscure, Paradigm and Vested.
If a Slippin Jimmy DJ set is in your future, you can expect to hear danceable rhythms flow effortlessly into more challenging, cerebral sonics. He seamlessly weaves even the most eclectic of songs into a sonic tapestry that’s accessible yet true to tradition. It’s a hard line to walk, but somehow he makes it look easy.
In the years to come, it’s safe to say that Slippin Jimmy’s star is on the rise. Don’t sleep on this up-and-comer as his name becomes ubiquitous in the world of house and techno.
