Before Real EDM, it was real radio
We have a strong history in EDM
The guys behind Real EDM, Luis and Dylan, have been radio presenters on Chicago’s only dance music station for over a decade. Beginning in 2006, these two where the main hosts of Dance Factory Radio. Dance Factory began broadcasting on 92.5. FM – 92.7 FM – 99.9 FM in the Chicagoland metro area, playing top EDM tracks, exclusive DJ mixes, and producing huge EDM concerts and club nights. Utilizing their substantial knowledge and experience in the broadcasting and EDM industry, they launched their first podcast in 2015.
About Real EDM
We originally launched our first podcast in 2015 naming it “CHI-EDM” as a nod to the deep history of house in Chicago. Our goal? To provide a genuine high quality podcast that consistently delivered real EDM interviews with the top hit makers in the electronic dance music genre. Outside of the podcast their mission is to provide timely EDM news updates through their website and social media sites.
It was a huge success, instantly our quality content attracted a sizable loyal following. Three years later in 2018, a broader vision was realized when CHI-EDM became REAL EDM. Research showed the name “CHI-EDM” didn’t resonate outside of the local Chicago market. By rebranding to “Real EDM” it is now much easier to convey the brand more clearly to a broader overall audience.
