Masterklass #2 - Dance Mania by Innershades


Red Bull Elektropedia Masterklass is not just another random mixtape series. Every episode tells the story of a love affair between a DJ and a certain genre, era, label or any kind of subject matter interesting enough to be turned into a proper mixtape. We select the DJs and musicians based on their knowledge of (and enthusiasm for) music - giving them absolute freedom to show off their insights. Subscribe yourself to our Masterklasses today and get a PhD in music sciences tomorrow.

Second in line: Innershades. This Belgian house producer is hitting the scene in fast pace with releases on Wicked Bass, Roze Balletten, Skylax & Chiwax. His Masterklass mixtape is showcasing his love for one label only: the Chicago house label 'Dance Mania'. The raw ghetto house sound of the label, founded in 1985 by Jesse Sounders, is one of the direct inspirations of Innershades' sound of today. Pop Dat Thang!
