Glenn Underground is the founding member of the Strictly Jaz Unit. He is by far the deepest most prolific House Music creators of any generation. Glenn was raised on Disco Classics Freeform Jazz, Jazz Fusion, Jazz Funk and Black soul music on Chicago's South & West Sides (the place where House Music was born). Glenn’s inspiration derives from Chicago's original pioneers Larry Heard, Ron Hardy, Lil' Louis & the late Frankie Knuckles. Glenn Underground has produced music for some of the most respected Deep House Music labels of the past 27 plus years. His releases for Cajual, Prescription, Guidance, KENLOU Records, Vega Records, Shelter Records, Wave Records, Peacefrog and his SJU Muzic label have set the standard for sophisticated dance music. He is one of the few DJ's who can walk the line between Deep Jazz House, Disco influenced House, and the kind of Classics featured at the legendary parties of late seventies Chicago.
Circa 1984, GU aka CVO started out as a Dj under the tutelage of his uncle David Collins in Chicago's Englewood neighborhood. GU started collecting large amounts of vinyl in the mid 1980's, from raw Disco to what is now called Rare Grooves & various styles of Chicago House Music alongside SJU MUZIC CO-CEO, best friend and close brother Boo Williams. Once Glenn & Boo came together, they set the SJU standard of House Music. An equally talented DJ, GU has played all over the world seeing many countries along his journey.
