ABOUT WASTED CHICAGO YOUTH
Wasted Chicago Youth are Justin Long and Mazi Namvar; Chicago's well known underground house militia. With their latest invention, the duo breathe life back into the sleeping giant that is Chicago House Music. It's no small order, but both artists feel the time has come to get their hometown back on top of a scene that has in recent years seen its status trivialized.
Justin is well known for his on going residency at Chicago's infamous Smart Bar, going strong for over 7 years. He has released original music and remixes on Classic, MFF, Junior Boys Own, Robsoul and Cajual additionally master minding the .dotbleep imprint. Fresh Meat's Mazi is no stranger to successful collaborations and has worked with some of the most influential labels in electronic music. Together these two recently dropped their WCY debut releases on the gent's own labels. They first unleased the Cuckoo Clocked EP on Fresh Meat and then followed up quickly with I-Speak on .dotbleep. Two of the tracks have already placed in top 100 sales positions on Beatport.
