Why: As the fourth member of the Detroit supergroup 3 Chairs, alongside the iconic Moodymann and legendary Theo Parrish and Marcellus Pittman, Rick Wilhite often flies under the radar. Although he keeps things relatively low-key, Wilhite has been producing since 1983 and was once the owner of Vibes, the now-closed record shop in Detroit. His past experience has bestowed him a wealth of knowledge of house and techno music—his huge respect for the craft of DJing and love for the music is not something to be missed.
