Specto Entertainment & PHAT Entertainment presents:
JJ FLORES & STEVE SMOOTH
Come join us at Club Congress with not one, but two Chicago house legends!
Ultra Records // CHICAGO, IL
JJ began his career as a child producing music in the heart of Chicago where he witnessed the birth and evolution of House Music. This inspiration and influence led to his first produced record released on Atlantic Records at the age of 17. At age 22, JJ became an integral part of the production team “20 Fingers” – a team responsible for many hit records reaching both gold and platinum sales worldwide. His knowledge and experience allowed him to do remixes for some of the powerhouses in pop music including NSync, Britney Spears, and Christina Milian, just to name a few. From there, he went on to produce with Bad Boy Bill and eventually teamed up with Steve Smooth and established himself as House Music DJ and artist.
Under the artist name “JJ Flores & Steve Smooth,” they released two albums: “The Collection” under Ménage Music and “AMP’d” under Ultra Records. JJ soon became a household name in House Music, traveling across the nation solo as well as with Steve Smooth and go-go dancers, named the Bad Ass B*tches, in a tour called “DJ’s, B*tches & Debauchery.” Having many top charting releases, including a number one record on Beatport, JJ Flores has been consistent with having records that appeal to the masses.
Transcending his talents as a DJ, he has had residencies at the hottest spots including Crobar (Chicago), Spybar (Chicago), Dream (Miami Beach), Infusion Lounge (San Francisco), Groove Cruise, and Candy Cruise to name a few. He is currently signed to Ultra Records and recently moved to Los Angeles to continue his work on new music.

Adored by crowds worldwide, Steve has taken his skills as a DJ to over 30 different countries in the last 5 years & to over 100 shows just last year alone. Steve’s talent as a DJ is only matched by his proficiency as a producer with releases on such labels as, Ultra Records, Ministry of Sound, Black Hole Recordings, Flamingo Recordins & Spinnin Records. Steve has remixed for many artists such as Eric Prydz & Bad Boy Bill. His remix of “Dancin” by Aaron Smith entered the Top 10 UK Pop Charts. Steve has also released 3 full length albums titled “The Collection,” “Amp’d,” & “Higher.” His song “Stay” featuring vocalist Colette quickly hit #1 on Beatport.com & was in BPM Radio’s Top 20 of the year. Steve’s newest singles “Mmm Drop” & “Free” with Bad Boy Bill both are creating a huge buzz in the club scene & have climbed their way into Beatport’s Top 20!
