Patience is not the most common feature among up and coming producers these days, but for Sean Hernandez it was the only way. A Chicago native who joined its house scene in the late 80s, first as a teenage party-goer and then as part of a DJ duo with his older brother, Hernandez learned the art of working a crowd for years before starting in on production. Once he did, he lavished attention upon his hardware, mastering the basics and absorbing every intricacy. It was only in 2007 that he began seriously submitting his music to labels both in Chicago and abroad, finding homes for his refined yet spazzy house tunes on M>O>S Recordings, Eargasmic Recordings, and Uzuri. Now that determined approach is paying off as people are aligning Hernandez, as Chicago Skyway, with part of Chicago’s house music vanguard. He provided us with an exclusive double podcast showcasing both sides of Chicago Skyway: a groovy, sweat-inducing DJ set and a live set made almost entirely of unreleased CS material.
