Mix Series: Guidry

If you’ve ever read XLR8RChicagoist or ventured out into Chicago nightlife even a little bit, then you’re more than likely aware of the man that is Jake Guidry. Freelance writer to the aforementioned outlets and contributor/ resident to the Signal monthly party at SmartBar, Jake is all over the place. And with such a broad exposure comes an admirably refined palette; this becomes quite evident when skimming his Bizzies Mix track list. Aside from obviously popular artists like Jay Z, Kanye West and Gucci Mane, just about every featured track is from the “up and coming” side of things. Since that’s one of our main focuses here at Bizzies, this mix is most suitable.

After rinsing this smooth flowing Bass selection you’ll probably find yourself wanting more Guidry, so I suggest checking him out next Thursday (February 23) at the Red Bull Music Academy showcase with Nguzunguzu, Supreme Cuts (live), Sparkletone and myself. It will be a swell time, I’m sure.
