Coming into adulthood in Chicago’s underground music scene, Whelan’s personal musicality is deeply influenced by soulful house and rugged hip-hop alike, unifying his sonic hemisphere through break-beat fundamentals. The Easyjack catalog ranges from four-on-the-floor anthems to glitched-out, swampy breakdowns. As the co-owner and lead engineer of Sound System Cultures, Whelan is also uniquely influenced by his experience operating high-fidelity sound systems. Translating that love of fidelity into his own musical productions, Easyjack has become synonymous with clarity and cohesion.
Easyjack has shared the stage with Tipper, Telefon Tel Aviv, Griff, K.L.O, and a wide swath of other producers and DJ’s from across the planet. His performances have been featured at Thaliah Hall, Infrasound, The Freakeasy, Astral Lights, Lucidity, and countless other venues and festivals throughout the North American landscape.
