Glenn Underground

Real Name:
Glenn Crocker
Born in 1971.
Home Town: Chicago, USA.
Glenn Underground is the founding member of the Strictly Jaz Unit. He was raised on disco classics and freeform jazz in Chicago's Southside, the place where house music was born. Taking inspiration from Chicago's original pioneers, Larry Heard, Ron Hardy, Lil' Louis, and the like, Glenn has produced some of the most well respected deep house music of the past five years. His releases for Cajual, Prescription Guidance and Peacefrog have set the standard for sophisticated dance music. He is one of the few DJ's who can walk the line between deep jazz house, disco influenced house, and the kind of classics featured at the legendary parties of late 70's Chicago.

One of the greatest and most prolific house music producers of all time, his best records are probably the ones he released on the Cajual/Relief/Prescription/Balance family in the mid-1990's, though many of his Guidance and Nite Life Collective releases are worth picking up as well. Best known as a deep houser but also a good producer of tech-house and disco sample house. His "Wilderness EP" as CVO on Balance Records seems to have been recalled or withdrawn and is one of the most valuable and collectible Chicago house music records of its era.

Glenn has been gracing us with beautiful melody based tunes for years, his Chicago roots raised him right, his music is infused with jazz and disco elements, his keyboard based productions are incredibly tight and so well organized and produced, a true genious. Although he's been putting out records since the early 90's, i personally still feel that he hasnt gotten his deserved props as an innovator of house music. Whenever i listen to one of his creations, iam blown away by the intricate arrangements and bold statements he makes with keyboards. Its all gold baby.
