Though simmering for years in the stew of Chicago’s nascent footwork and juke scene, the sound of DJ Spinn & DJ Rashad‘s frenetic 808 programming and deftly sliced r&b loops has turned into an epidemic in recent years, informing the trajectory of club music the world over. DJ Spinn and DJ Rashad’s skills behind the turntables, honed from years playing after-school footwork battles, provide the perfect soundtrack for adrenaline-fuelled, 160 BPM dance mayhem. In March 2013, Rashad was enlisted for an EP release on Hyperdub, serving as yet another step on the duo’s path to take the sound of Chicago’s juke movement global.
