Episode 3: Interview with Chicago’s DJ Bucky Fargo and exclusive mix! — Fargo is rooted in the dark, spacey sounds of Techno/Minimal, taking audiences on tech-heavy ride suited for the after-midnight set. Growing up in the house epicenter of Chicago, Fargo took some points from the radio pioneers who crafted a weekly vibe on the Hot Mix 5 of WBMX 102.7. After hunting down music of his interest in run-down warehouses, Bucky was quickly influenced by the rave scene in the 90’s. In no time Bucky was a seasoned conductor of the Midwest rave scene and playing some of the most respected club events across the tri-state area. These days, in addition to the clubs and the underground scene you can hear Fargo in Chicago on 101 WKQX’s Electric Playground.
