Artist Bio:
Glenn Underground
Circa 1984, GU aka CVO started out as a DJ under the tutelage of his uncle David Collins in Chicago’s Englewood neighbourhood. He started collecting large amounts of vinyl in the mid 1980’s, from raw Disco to what is now called Rare Grooves & various styles of Chicago House Music.

He is the founding member of the Strictly Jaz Unit and has become one of the most prolific House Music creators of his generation. Glenn was raised on Disco Classics Freeform Jazz, Jazz Fusion, Jazz Funk and Black soul music on Chicago’s South & West Sides (the place where House Music was born). Glenn’s inspiration derives from Chicago’s original pioneers Larry Heard, Ron Hardy, Lil‘ Louis & the late Frankie Knuckles. Glenn has produced music for some of the most respected Deep House Music labels of the past three decades. His releases for Cajual, Prescription, Guidance, KENLOU Records, Vega Records, Shelter Records, Wave Records, Peacefrog and the output of his own SJU label, which he runs with his close brother Boo Williams, have set the standard for sophisticated dance music.

He is one of the few DJ’s who can walk the line between Deep Jazz House, Disco influenced House, and the kind of Classics featured at the legendary parties of late seventies Chicago and continues to this day performing the world over.
