Andrew Emil has been a respected fixture and familiar face in Chicago’s vibrant and diverse music scene for over a decade and a half.
These days, Emil’s sound reflects an eclectic and mature marriage of classic and contemporary elements of Chicago house, infused with the jazz and soul undercurrents that have been with him since his early days as a budding musician and sound engineer. With numerous productions that have landed on countless Top 100 charts, a notable discography and legitimate DJ resume, and—perhaps most importantly—the unwavering support of Chicago’s many prominent local house music icons, Emil stands out as his own man and a true talent amid a crowd of old-school house heavyweights. Andrew is the featured resident at First Saturday’s (the first Saturday of the month from 6-8:30pm CST) at the legendary Gramaphone Records in Chicago.
