The Hot Mix 5 were an American DJ crew originating from Chicago, Illinois. The founding members were Farley "Jackmaster" Funk, Mickey "Mixin" Oliver, Scott "Smokin" Silz, Ralphi Rosario and Kenny "Jammin" Jason.

Formed in 1981 to act as the resident DJs on Chicago FM radio station (now defunct) WBMX 'Saturday Night Live Ain't No Jive' mix show hosted by Armando Rivera, the members quickly established themselves in the burgeoning Chicago house music scene.
