Members: Dan Jugle, Kenneth Zawacki. Marketplace 30 For Sale.
Jugle, a pillar of the Chicago underground, was known for a few different live electronic acts, including Juzer with Beau Wanzer and Dar Embarks with Kenneth Zawacki. Spanning ambient music, art rock and techno, Jugle's name has appeared on labels like The Corner, Dog In The Night and Stilove4music. Friends and collaborators took to social media over the last few days to mourn his passing. Listen to Juzer's 2014 album, Horseplay. Over the weekend we lost Dan Jugle 1 half of Dar Embarks & Juzer on The Corner among many other awesome projects.
Dan Jugle only ever got famous for Dar Embarks and Juzer, but his influence on Chicago punk, electronic music, and indie rock spans decades. Last Thursday, Dar Embarks played Smart Bar, one of the most respected electronic-music venues on the continent. But it was the last time Jugle performed live-he died this past weekend at age 37. Jugle grew up in Elmhurst, and in the 90s he started introducing his friends to records, taking them to shows, and just generally leading them into underground music cultures that most kids their age barely knew existed. Dan was the prime mover for everything," says longtime friend and musical collaborator Mike Broers
Members of the local Chicago music community and underground, as well as Jugle’s surviving band members, have been reacting to and mourning his passing on social media these past few days. Stream the 2014 Juzer album ‘Horseplay’ below.
