VOLT MODZ is a production, performance and DJ duo consisting of K Ford and Shifty Johnson. Analog synthesizers, dirty beats and a love for all things JACK, fuel the VOLT MODZ, both in the studio and on stage. K Ford, a wizard on the keys, has been rocking house music since the early days, spinning with the likes of Terry Mullan and Bad Boy Bill. Shifty Johnson seems to have come out of nowhere back in 2003, but those involved in Chicago’s underground scene know better. Both are products of Chicago’s vibrant underground scene.
K Ford and Shifty Johnson collaborated before the inception of the VOLT MODZ as part of the one-hit-wonder, Lake Street Project. As part of the Lake Street Project they produced the Billboard hit “Forever” for Four Play Music/Forever Soul.
The dirty jackin’ tech house being concocted in the VOLT MODZ studio sessions is a far cry from the soulful house music of yesteryear. However, one thing remains the same – their music makes us jack!
