Kerri Chandler will debut a new live show at The Roundhouse in North London on 28th November, 2021.
Dubbed Kerri Chandler’s Spaces And Places, the six hour event will be Chandler’s first ever public performance of his reel-to-reel tape DJing using four machines - a concept inspired by watching early House DJs like Frankie Knuckles mix on tapes when his career was still in its infancy.
Kerri Chandler has been awarded a special Lifetime Achievement award as part of DJ Mag’s Top 100 Poll 2020.
Dennis Quin will release a new EP next week.

Kerri Chandler has made a selection of previously unreleased and vinyl-only tracks available for free download.
The 43-track collection was shared by the New Jersey house legend last night (15th August). It features a number of well-known tracks such as ‘Mommy What’s A Record’, ‘Get It Off’ and ‘In Search of Mr. Ford’ as well as a few Nina Simone remixes and numerous collaborations and demos.
The lower floor of Kerri Chandler’s house looks like the backstage production labyrinth of a massive arena. Hallway after hallway, shelf after shelf, room after room, there are stacks of music gear, flight cases, records, records and then some more records. Plus 36 sets of turntables, a drum machine closet and enough technology to fulfill any audiophile’s dreams. He has a live recording room and another room for programming, set up with numerous screens like a multiplex theatre.
“What happened was,” says Chandler, who begins all his stories and/or explanations with these three words. “What happened was, I was a studio engineer before I ever started making records. Early on, I found out a lot of gear wasn’t doing certain things I wanted it to do,” Chandler explains to DJ Mag how “Chandlerizing” became a thing.
On it are sounds from Earth: nature, animals, music from across the globe, and a variety of languages.
“I was thinking maybe we should put something positive into space,” says Chandler, fondling the cherished Golden Record replica. “Music is always universal. What we do always seems to unite people. I met someone who works with Messaging Extraterrestrial Intelligence and we found a planet to send audio signals to. We got sponsorship and now there are a few DJs with 8-bit clips ready to send out to that galaxy to hit that planet.”
At the same time, Chandler is working on the third volume of ‘A Basement, A Red Light, And A Feelin’’, the Madhouse compilation series whose first volume was released in 1992, the second 10 years later in 2002. A third one would be another marker for the quarter century landmark. Much more recently Chandler launched his MadTech label in 2012 and even more recently than that, Kaoz Theory, named after his oft-used nickname “Kaoz”, in 2015.
Kerri Chandler is set to play a 3-hour set a New York’s House of Yes next weekend, Friday 18th May.
