This month we welcome Optimo ally and phenomenal Chicago dj/producer - Traxx. Inspired by the spirit of Ron Hardy, his 3 deck mixing is a thing of legend.

Traxx is responsible for inventing the "jakbeat" sound - "A turbo-charged take on old school acid and Chicago house for the 00s put together with the unmistakeable tones of classic analogue gear such as the TR-909, TR-808, and, of course, the TB-303."

Sessions by this Chicago genius are as unpredictable as they are pleasantly surprising, including everything from avant-garde and eclectic sounds to unending old school tracks. This is the spirit behind Nation, the platform he created in 2007 to gather creators who, like him, push the "jakbeat" sound to places where anything is possible.
