For our DMCWorld Influences series, we asked Deli G to share with us his most inspirational Glenn Underground productions.

Founding member of Chicago’s Strictly Jaz Unit, Glenn Underground was inspired by Chicago’s original pioneers, Larry Heard, Ron Hardy, Lil’ Louis and so forth and has produced some of the most well respected deep house music of the past three decades. His releases for Cajual, Prescription, Guidance and Peacefrog have set the standard for sophisticated dance music. One of the few DJs who can walk the line between deep house, afro house, jazz house, disco-influenced house, techno house and the kind of classics featured at the legendary parties of late 70’s Chicago..
