FRIDAY, SEP. 29th, 2023 CHICAGO | 10PM – LATE

Earth and its orbit just tilted,
it’s time to feel lifted.

Shit’s gonna get cold,
and feeling warm is the code.

Come dance your troubles away,
no chance to disobey.

Together we can decompress,
so join us and Bless This Mess.

We’re excited to bring you yet again, another good time. We shall remain dedicated to featuring amazing talent and couldn’t do it without you.


K.atou | Fade Radio | Greece

We welcome back to the U.S, Athens based K.atou. Being a key player in the Greek house and techno scene, K.atou is notorious for her love of Detroit techno and records that tend to make you trip, as well as her admiration for the Chicago sound we all love. The Greek selector of course has the means to ignite any time of the night, but there is after all a certain magic that comes over a party’s later hours, when the crowd is ready to fully experience the sounds being presented to them. The Fade Radio host is making her Chicago comeback and is ready to party with us.

AZA | Soundbeing Recordings | Cincinnati 

AZA is no stranger in the Midwest scene. She is based in the Northern Kentucky/Cincinnati area and has created a name for herself as a compelling curator for her electrifying DJ performances. She attributes the polyrythmic selections in her sets to her Carribean roots.

As our missions keep growing, we’re beyond grateful to have you be part of our little fam. Always mindful that with your help, we can Bless This Mess and continue cultivating our community by dancing, together. In case you haven’t noticed…

In the last year, our sanctuary city has struggled to find shelter for asylum seekers who have been coming by the bus load. Community organizations across Chicago need more supplies and helping hands to provide the latest wave of migrants with basic needs. On this special occasion, BTM will be collecting sweaters, coats and blankets to be donated to Project AMOR (Asylum Migrant Outreach Response) by Instituto 45.

We would like to help by collecting warm clothes and blankets (well kept & clean, all sizes) to offer to those in need through this organization, but we need your help.
