Snack Factory Presents: Gene Farris w/ Prince.L & Snack Factory on Saturday May 18th, 2024!

Gene Farris

Gene Farris lives and breathes house music. A bonafide Chicago legend, he’s been pushing musical boundaries for over three decades, from spinning at underground warehouse parties in the early 90s to working with the current crop of world-leading labels and artists. Relief, Dirty bird, Circus, ViVa Music,Defected, Repopulate Mars: all have released and championed Gene Farris records over the past few years, alongside his own Farris Wheel imprint: a testament to the quality and relevance of the music he creates. Farris has become a go-to collaborator for many high calibre artists, including Sub Focus, Cajmere, Green Velvet, Loco Dice, John Summit, Riva  Starr, Mark Knight and Jamie Jones, further establishing Farris as a rare and highly sought-after talent.

Gene started his career spinning vinyl – a mix of acid house and disco – and was one of The Power House’s first resident DJs, as well as a residency at Chicago’s infamous Boom Boom Room spanning eight years. A move to Europe followed, with Gene holding down a four-year residency at Jimmy Woo in Amsterdam, after which he hit the studio with a profound sense of innovation and a desire to make music that moved both him and others.

As a self-taught engineer and producer, his work with Cajual, Relief Records, Defected Records, Soma Recordings and his own breakout label Farris WheelRecordings, propelled his influence into ever expanding realms. His catalogue is vast, varied and consistently inspired, with notable releases including collaboration ‘It’s Time’ on EMI with drum and bass heavyweight Sub Focus,‘Play’ on Snatch!, ‘LOL’ on Relief and 2015’s ‘Move Your Body’, which was one of the biggest club records of the year. Similarly impressive was Gene’s ‘Welcome ToChicago EP’, which after its release on Defected Records back in 2003, quickly became a cult classic.
