On Sunday, November 5, Wax Poetics stopped by the Red Bull Sound Select and Discogs Crate Diggers Chicago record fair at the House of Vans to dig around and speak to some folks for our upcoming show Soul City. The debut of our new travel web series, which features a different city each episode, debuts in a couple months. The first episode is hosted by Wax Poetics journalist (and Chicago native) Ronnie Reese and features the Windy City, home to iconic R&B label Vee-Jay and soul legend Curtis Mayfield. We’re speaking to Mayfield’s son, Todd Mayfield, about his father’s ventures into creating his own labels—Windy C, Mayfield, and the successful Curtom. We also speak to Chicago house legend Ron Trent about the Chicago house scene, the early independent labels, and his own concern, Prescription Records, which Rush Hour recently compiled. Sign up to our newsletter and know the day the show drops.

Check out some flicks from our day digging and filming at the Red Bull Sound Select and Discogs Crate Diggers Chicago:
