Gene Farris is a Chicago house music legend, and over the last two decades he’s travelled the world DJing as well as producing his own music, featuring a sound that has continuously pushed house music forward. This week, Farris releases his latest album, “Cosmos,” which he says is inspired by one of the artists who inspired him, Lil’ Louis, and features his longtime friend and collaborator Cajmere.
He spoke to the Tribune last week, the day after his 42nd birthday. Here is an edited transcript of that conversation.
