Mr. Automatic is a versatile DJ and owner/operator of Dead 2 Me Records, a Neo-Vintage and Electro Swing label out of Chicago. His style has its origins in Electro and Nu Disco, although recently his jazz roots have come to the forefront as he has started fusing these genres with Electro Swing. Along with Vourteque and performance artist Lady Lenux, he formed the successful Rouge! Chicago’s Electro Swing Night in late 2013. Since then, Rouge! has popped up across the country, with a regular monthly in Detroit, and one-offs in Milwaukee, St. Louis, and New Orleans. Mr. Automatic currently holds down a residency at Untitled’s Unbridled night in downtown Chicago and House of Burlesque (House of Blues Chicago). His debut record on Dead 2 Me is the Neo-vintage EP "Squash and Stretch".
