When Chicago House music producer Vick Lavender visited Johannesburg, South Africa, for the first time in 2010, one of his long-held dreams came true.
“I remember getting in cabs, and they were playing my record on the radio,” Lavender said. “And they were playing my record in its entirety. I had never experienced that in Chicago. ”
House music fans also recognized him at the airport — another first for Lavender.
