Mixmaster Einstein in the mix on the beat chicago

Mixin’ It Loud and Clear from Mixmaster Einstein on The Saturday Night Live Ain’t No Jive Chicago Dance Party

Mixmaster Einstein is a resident DJ on our Saturday Night Live Ain’ No Jive Dance Party

Keeping the tradition alive started by our sister network WBMX back in 1981, the Beat Chicago is bringing old school back to the radio, online and in our app!

We’re in the old school mix with club classics, freestyle, house, the ’80s, ’90s, and more with Mixmaster Einstein.

Listen on the radio, in our free APP or streaming online around the clock with our playlist, HERE.

Back in the day, people used to record the mixes on the radio so they wouldn’t miss them. People around the world have huge collections of those mixes from back in the day.

Today, we do all the work for you by uploading each week’s mix show to our website on Tuesdays. Once uploaded, you can listen to those mixes and all the past mixes, on-demand, here on the website, and in our app.

Each DJ mix show page includes the on-demand player, the tracklist (when available) as well as information and links to the DJ.

Born and raised in Gary, IN, Allen Upshaw AKA Mix-Master Einstein picked up his musical tastes from his family consisting of rap, R&B, jazz, and blues but then he took interest in what is commonly referred to as old school house music. He studied and learned the basic techniques of mixing by listening to the Hot Mix 5 on WBMX in Chicago, IL.

The Hot Mix 5 consisted of Kenny “Jammin'” Jason, Ralphi “The Razz” Rosario, Scott “Smokin'” Sills, Farley “Funkin'” Keith (BKA Farley “Jackmaster Funk”), and Mickey “Mixin'” Oliver.

Allen’s favorite was Ralphie Rosario because of his smooth transitions between songs and the choice of music he would mix. He started mixing at the age of 13 and is still mixing music of varying genres to this day.
