The House That Chicago Built

The first official teaser - opening with a question "bigger than who shot Kennedy" in Chicago.

Or as one YouTube commenter says, "[T]he question of the ages. There has never been more arguments, controversies or problems than the answer to that question."


"The House That Chicago Built is a new film that tells the real story of House Music for the first time ever," the film's website says.

"A film that covers House Music's entire history from its birth in Chicago through its evolution to becoming the world's No. 1 genre of music.

"Directed by the Founding Father, Lil Louis, the film doesn't just break new ground, but shakes the very foundation of the genre, traveling deep beneath the earth that House Music and EDM now stand on, down to the roots of its beginning, and filling all the holes left in the unframed history of hand-me-down, and often made-up Wikipedia stories about House.

"Told from a solely unique perspective, Lil Louis paints an unbiased, uncensored and unapologetically vivid picture, disclosing many 'tabooed' and unknown secrets about House Music, and the good, the bad and sometimes horrific hardships of growing up in Chicago."


"The feature film, seven years in the making, is set for release in the coming months," according to Resident Advisor.


"Lil Louis is the stage name used by Chicago-born house-music producer and DJ Louis Sims," according to Wikipedia.

"He scored a number of hits on the Billboard Hot Dance Music/Club Play chart in the 1980s and 1990s, three of which hit #1."


Here's one of 'em: "French Kiss."


As far as the question goes, all we know here at Beachwood HQ is that if Frankie Knuckles didn't make it, he probably played it.
