Hyp 188: Rahaan

Master of the boogie, Chicago’s Rahaan Young has been serving up Disco to the Windy City’s house party scene since the 80’s. He’s released records on Stillove4music, Ubiquity and also self released a selection of edits on his own Rahaan-MuziK imprint to name a few, but it’s his skills behind the decks that has elevated him from the underground party circuit to tour destinations all over the world.

Hyp 188 is one of the most up-beat mix tapes we’ve yet to receive. A swinging blend of 80’s Disco, Funk & Chicago House classics. Inspiring visions of sun-kissed skin, ice-cold cocktails and roof-top terraces it’s packed with feel-good vibes and comes deeply rooted in the groove. Featuring some irresistible Funk from the Boogie Men, a silky-smooth edit from Serge Gamesbourg on Rahaan’s own low key Street Edits series and a treasure trove of unknown gems…Staying true to the digger’s code, this one comes without a tracklist. Enjoy it for what it is.

You can catch Rahaan play at the next notsosilent party at Madison Rooftop in London on August 3rd, tickets and more info here.
