Chicago has long been relevant in the electronic music scene and has been cited as one of the first rudimentary sources of original underground house music going back to the 80’s, putting the city in the rank with Detroit and Toronto. Ghosts of Venice doesn’t produce house music, but he certainly adds to the city’s repertoire for talented beat makers. After making his first label appearance in 2009 on Defected Records, he has since worked hard on setting himself apart from the waves of other disco-house producers, and succeeded in that endeavor. Fans of Daft Punk, Bag Raiders, or Aeroplane circa 2009 will likely find refuge in Lee Dunn’s (Ghosts of Venice) funk heavy, pop-soaked music. He is past the point the stage of proving himself as an upcoming artist, so much so, that he will be opening for the legendary John Digweed on Halloween in Chicago! His discography is stacked with gems, but for now we’ll just give you a taste with his new remix of “My Body” by Treasure Fingers & The Knocks, available for download below.
