Rees Urban hails from Chicago, where he’s a 20-year veteran in the DJ booth. Since his humble beginnings, he’s maintained his idealistic values as a DJ from his 1st shows playing VFW halls in Chicago in the mid 90s to clubs & raves across the US and shortly thereafter at clubs and festivals overseas.
As a producer he’s accumulated over 100 releases on several cult labels like Dance Mania, Tresor, Underground Construction, Pro-Jex, IHR & Primate (under the names Rees Urban, DJ Urban and his duo Pair of Jacks with longtime friend, Angel Alanis).
In 2014 he launched his collaboration project, Rubb Sound System with Brian Boncher where they’ve already remixed legendary artists like Frankie Knuckles & Jamie Principle, Lil’ Louis, Marshall Jefferson, Steve Silk Hurley, Farley Jackmaster Funk, Armando, Robert Armani and DJ Deeon. In just a short period of time artists like Roger Sanchez, Hercules & Love Affair, Congorock, Roy Davis Jr., Joachim Garraud and Parris Mitchell are finding RSS releases in their sets and charts.
