RYC Podcast 107 | DJ Hyperactive (Chicago)
DJ Hyperactive was born and raised on Chicago’s South Side. Rocking vinyl for over 30 years and soon jumped in the studio at the start of the 90s. His early output surfaced on his own imprint, Contact Records, along with releases on pioneering labels such as Drop Bass, Communique, Sounds, Analog, UC and the list goes on. In ‘97 DJ Hyperactive headed west to kick off the opening of Higher Source Records & Gear in Huntington Beach. This move also marked the start of 4 Track Records (now 4trk). After nearly a 20 year run in Los Angeles, he decided to return to Chicago and set up camp again.



After seeing chart topping success of Len Fakis remix of Hyperactive classic “Wide Open” on Len’s Figure label and the release of his 25HRs in A Day ep with Raiz and Markus Suckut remixes on Los Angeles based Droid Recordings. Hyperactives current focus is set on a list of remixes and the re-launch of 4trk (vinyl + dig). Recent remixes include reworking of “Sledgehammer” by the Manic Brothers on Sian's Octopus Black Label and remix of his all time classic "Venus" which will launch on CLR this March along with Truncate and Ciren remixes, as well..!!
