Chicago Loop
Techno/Hard Techno

Chicago Loop is a name that has now been firmly stamped throughout the modern world of techno, albeit within a fairly short space of time. The man behind this relatively new alias however, is certainly not a newcomer to the scene. Ant Wilson, or Ant to his friends, has been producing electronic music and traveling the globe playing at clubs, events and festivals since 1994 from Japan to North and South America, Israel, Russia, South Africa, Europe and everywhere else in between.

It was a career that started back in the heady days of early 90’s London at the illegal rave and warehouse parties that made up a huge part of the scene at that time. Ant very quickly moved onto producing music shortly after, and around the year 2000 he started running his own record label out of the infamous Kinetec studio and record shop in London’s Oxford Circus. Eventually, with almost two decades of travelling, DJ’ing and recording experience under his belt, Ant decided it was time for a change, and in 2013 the Chicago Loop alias was unleashed, which focused solely on creating more upfront and modern techno productions. Within just a few years of launching the project, Chicago Loop secured releases on major labels such as Phobiq, Respekt, Toolroom, Riot, Funk’N Deep, Renesanz and Techburst and his tracks received continued support from some of the scenes biggest players. His 2016 techno hit, “Use Me” on Techburst Records enjoyed over 200 days in the Beatport Hard Techno chart and sat at the No.1 spot for over 25 of those days.

In addition to the many successes with releases, Chicago Loop has been showcasing his sound around the world, playing at events in Asia, South America and across Europe. Some highlights have included the legendary “Techno Tuesday Amsterdam” and the sold out “Welcome To The Future Festival” events and in 2021 he secured a new residency at Friday Happiness in Tojeiro in Southern Portugal.

Today, Chicago Loop is constantly busy in the studio writing more high-profile releases, as well as his chart-topping sample packs on Industrial Strength and endeavours to continue his journey delivering more fresh, no-nonsense techno to dance floors around the world.
