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. 

We originally launched the podcast CHI-EDM as a nod to the deep history of house in Chicago. It was a huge success, instantly our quality content attracted a sizable loyal following. Then in 2019, CHI-EDM became REAL EDM. By rebranding to “Real EDM” it is now much easier to convey the overall brand more clearly to a broader audience.
