FOOTWORK PRIMER Following the sad death of DJ Rashad in April, we’ve compiled an entirely not-at-all exhaustive list of ten footwork tracks people might like.
DJ Rashad (pictured) – ‘Ghetto Tekz Runnin It’ Possibly the tune that will turn anyone onto footwork, a soulful Bobby Caldwell sample wrapped around some slinky, frantic bass action. Chrissy Murderbot feat DJ Spinn – ‘Bussin’ Down’
Footwork is great party music, but isn’t normally overly playful. This infectious track marries the two with its hyperkinetic, day-glo cheeriness.
Traxman – ‘Footworkin on Air’ As close to a kind of zen-like footwork meditation as we are ever likely to get.
DJ Gant-Man – ‘Juke Dat Girl’ DJ Gant-Man’s big juke number sounds just like footwork when you crank that pitch up to the max. Young Smoke – ‘Let Go’ Cosmic, bong-influenced, even introspective tune from one of the emerging talents of footwork, Young Smoke.
DJ Earl – ‘Hit Da Bootz’ Hip hop is a large part of footwork in both texture and sampling, and in this rambunctious effort, young tearaway DJ Earl expertly combines both. DJ Manny – ‘Sunshine’ A nice summery uplifting cut from the forthcoming album Tek Files Vol. 1 from Rashad collaborator and Teklife crew member.
RP Boo – ‘What’cha Gonna Do’ No list could be without pioneer RP Boo, and this stripped- down cut from his Legacy album is footwork distilled to its essential bare bones. Ramadanman – ‘Work Them’ Not exactly footwork, but this brilliant number from the Hessle Audio co-founder shows how the genre has influenced bass music on this side of the globe.
DJ Rashad feat DJ Spinn – ‘Drank, Kush, Barz’ A now immortal refrain from Rashad’s Double Cup LP from last year: ‘We got drank, we got kush, we got barz in this bitch’. RIP. (Mark Keane) ■ See page 83 for a Traxman album review.
