Raised on, and inspired by, the consistently SOLID and always innovative club sets of Chicago’s Farley ‘Jackmaster’ Funk and Ron Hardy, Doc Link launched his DJ career 30 years ago. When he is not headlining shows across the globe, Doc can be found working on another creation in his “lab” in the Southside of Chicago, where he was born and still resides.
Doc’s versatility and interest in genres ranging from soul and raw funk to HOUSE allowed him to develop a signature style of DJing - a mixture new and old, often including his own re-edits and versions of popular tracks. Prompted by his eclectic musical background and the patience of years of learning and listening, each song becomes a personal relationship, a relationship that provides him with a unique connection to his audiences.
While Doc’s dedication, professionalism, and knack for providing the highest level of ENTERTAINMENT have earned him a lucrative and high profile DJ career, he is equally proficient in the studio. Since launching Liberate Recordings in partnership with Eman a little over a decade ago, Doc Link has overseen more than 100 releases, featuring artists like Roy Davis Jr, Stephanie Cooke, and Malik Alston.
Doc has participated in groundbreaking collaborations with producers from across the globe and has issued releases on more than a dozen leading labels, including Defected and Farris Wheel. As someone who truly loves music and has dedicated his life to creation, Doc’s sole purpose is to take crowds to that elusive next level.
