House music history was made when Farris took his demo to Relief Records. Hanging out in the Relief office was another young Chicago DJ called Sneak, who also just made his first demo. Farris and Sneak both had their tracks signed. The Farris Wheel EP was Farris’ debut release for Relief in 1994. Gene Farris, alongside like-minded musicians such as DJ Sneak, Paul Johnson, Derrick Carter, DJ Rush, Ron Trent, Boo Williams and Glen Underground formed the new wave of notorious, soon to be globe-trotting Chicago DJs and producers.
When asked about his future in music Gene Farris passionately replies, House music is my one and only true love. I’ve been with her for over sixteen years and never plan on leaving. She’s my peace: me and the music. The international demand for the elite Chicago House sound has kept Gene Farris busy gigging around the globe for over the past ten years. Gene Farris is the sinister minister of dance music’s changing sounds. Farris’s unique dexterous DJ style that includes extended sultry, melodic blends with tuff beats makes him a party favorite here around the world.
