Puttshack Jams: Chicago Freestyle

To celebrate our newbie, Oak Brook - we’ve crafted a hotbed of talent to pay homage to The Windy City’s vibrant music scene, and join the dots between the spots in our ever-growing family. Let’s give it up for Chicago!

Check out some of our track highlights from the Chicago Freestyle Playlist:

Chance The Rapper - All Night (ft Knox Fortune)

The Chicago native’s legendary mixtape series final chapter, Colouring Book, was the first ever streaming-only project to qualify for a Grammy. ‘All Night’ is one of our fav jam’s that should be played loud. We can’t wait to hear more from Chance!

Ray Charles - I Got a Woman

Listen back to where it all started and you'll find Blues was the birth of all music. Ray produced one of the biggest Blues hits and it stands as the highest ranking sampled track across all music - you can hear why, right?

Arlo Parks - Too Good

As a nod to our crew in the UK, we wanted to share one of the nation's favs. Arlo recently won the Mercury Prize and gave us this sing-a-long, feel good anthem.

Diplo - Do Si Do (ft Blanco Brown)

This track is from Diplo’s country crossover project, Thomas Wesley Chapter 1: Snake Oil. Warning - it’s an infectious bop!

Marshall Jefferson - Move Your Body

A real anthem! It’s a banger and synonymous with classic house in pop culture. Dig into the history and you’ll discover seminal clubs such as The Warehouse, known as one of the birthplaces of Chicago House.

Disclosure & Mick Jenkins - Who Knew?

When UKG meets Chicago soulful vocals. It’s a winning combo. Obvs...

Kanye West - Homecoming (ft Chris Martin)

Kanye pays homage to his hometown, with a Hype Williams directed video, which follows Mr West through the streets of Chicago. “And you say Chi city! Chi city! Chi city!

Gil Scott-Heron & Jamie xx - I'll Take Care of U

Another US to UK link up, this collab surprised us all. It’s travelled from Gil's cover of Bobby Bland to Jamie xx's edit. The result - a masterpiece.
