Welcome to the “official” website of Chicago-based DJ, producer, remix artist and event promoter Joseph C.R. Vourteque!

Vourteque has been hailed for his iconoclastic take on many forms of music from house, electro and drum n bass to gothic country, gypsy fusion and alternative vaudeville.  He was also told by a person in Wisconsin that he made a joke of DJs. Evidently they did not appreciate a three hour 90’s euro-dance set.

Today Vourteque is best known for his work in the electro-swing, circuspunk and steampunk movements. He’s consistently at the forefront of both music and events. To find out more visit the section above that is inexplicably named after him.

Also feel free to peruse the LISTEN section where you can listen to his original works, remixes and DJs sets.  If you like his work enough to download it go to the EXPERIENCE section and, well, download it.  Or if you like, download other things he has that are all about him.  If you still like what he does after that do check out the up-coming events because events are fantastic and you don’t go to enough of those.  Shame on you.

You can also find Vourteque’s opinions, ideas and maybe some legitimate news in the  MUSINGS & NEWS section.  Then feel free to admire him in the SEE section where he’s graciously supplied you with pictures and videos featuring none other than himself.  After all that riveting content you can go further by CONTACTING him to tell how much you adore/loathe/are-indifferent to him. Lastly, tell the people and associations that Vourteque seems to think he’s affiliated with that everything is going to be “okay” by visiting the EXPLORE! section and following the links far far away from this page.

But most of all, thank you for visiting, and come back… REALLY soon.

It’s in your best interest… he thinks he knows where you live.

New Vourteque Website Coming soon! For now this is Where to See Me!

Yeah, I’m terrible at up-dating this website. So we’re going to be overhauling it soon with a more simple layout and a better listing of the events I’ll be doing.

Happy Birthday to… Me! Come out and Celebrate All Week Long!

Ah that special time of the year the irritating summery center of the world is finally dying and grey skies prevail again! And you know what that means, right? It also means it’s my birthday!
