Preview: James Murphy DJ Set - THE MID, Chicago, January 25

Ever since the disbandment of LCD Soundsystem in 2011, founding frontman James Murphy has been simultaneously elusive while maintaining prominence. Murphy can now be found acting, producing new music with familiar faces, and of course, DJing.

Murphy has stated, in both song and interview, that one of his passions is DJing. Ever the elitist tastemaker, James Murphy has always been one of the best at bringing his finer selection of music to the masses... case and point(s): "Losing My Edge" and "Daft Punk Is Playing At My House" and the entire DFA record label.

The set will be worth checking out based off of James Murphy's musical prowess, alone.

Don't expect too much aside from the spinning of 45's of house and soul music, and maybe a few tracks from some of the DFA artist roster. But based on Murphy's knack for crowd control and his apparent via musical stylings, I'm guessing you won't be able to stop dancing.

The venue opens at 10 pm and there are a three opening DJs. Tickets are $25 and available here.  Check back here at FPT after the set for a full recap of the event.
