Chicago, Il, United States
DJ Misfit, real name Shawn DeVries, is a DJ and producer from the Chicago area. Influenced by Chicago’s house and industrial music scenes in the 1980’s, and the growing US rave scene in the 1990’s, Misfit went on to bring his melodic, jazzy drum n bass sound to rave and club events throughout the midwest. He also explores DJing other musical genres through his 52mixes.com project: one mix, every week, for one year.
Recently, DJ Misfit has produced a number of unsigned tracks reflecting influences from jazz, ambient electronica, dub, downtempo, West Coast breaks, and hip hop. His “live” appearances are limited, but he has been known to host live internet radio shows from time to time.
