Ever since he took control of his Catholic High School's dance committee and started spinning the new wave and early electronic music he loved, Hac Le has been exhorting audiences to dance, and audiences have listened. listed resident & Auralism's multi-talented Creative Director is a man of many hats, from world-traveling DJ, to promoter, to up-and-coming producer.

The Vietnam-born Hac spent the '90s kicking around LA, absorbing the spacey, mind-warping West Coast sound and putting in a three-year residency at Melrose's Kontrol Faktory party. After relocating to Chicago, giving up on and subsequently rediscovering DJing, he began producing his own dark, tech-y tracks under the name Kyaro with new ally and future Auralism founder Jason Short. (Hac currently has several solo and collaborative projects in the works.)

In 2000, Hac co-founded Global Trip, a Mexico-based company that has imported everyone from Lee Burridge to Deep Dish to Dimitri from Paris; he also forms the heart of Play Co. & Friends, a cadre of producers, artists, and DJs who use to promote Chicago's underground scene through parties, radio shows but now lives on as a monthly podcast since his relocation to San Francisco. Still, the turntables remain Hac's true passion, reinforced when John Digweed chose Hac's mix as the winner of FutureMusic's Next Big Thing DJ contest and when James Zabiela in the recent DJ Mag poll named him "Breakthru DJ of 2008". Hac's sets, which will carry him around the globe in the coming year, are where his longstanding infatuation with dance music comes alive. "On one hand, I have the Chicago house influence, on the other, the nearby Detroit techno, and my West Coast background. It all comes together in a very nice fusion which people enjoy and seem to have a hard time categorizing!"
