ASSYLEM Radio and Vision Night Club present “Bringing House Back Home,” a night of International DJ’s whose influences come from the original Chicago House music scene. Since the creation of “House” in Chicago during the 1980’s, this liberating music has grown to encompass genre on genre styles including Deep, Tech, Minimal and Progressive and has spread world-wide birthing Acid, Garage, to Dub Step.
