Description

Founded by musician Rocky Jones, DJ International records was the right label in the right place at the right time. Chicago in 1985 was a city which was moving to its own particular beat and that beat was House Music. The key movers and shakers in the clubs were Frankie Knuckles at The Warehouse and Ron Hardy at the Music Box, who were responsible for influencing a whole new generation of Chicago-based artists who were experimenting with the unique rhythms they were hearing at these two Chicago clubs.
