Four years ago, XLR8R published a podcast from a couple of up-and-comers out of Chicago, DJ Rashad and DJ Spinn. At the time, the two were relatively unknown, but they were also the leading figures in the city's footwork scene, which was only then just starting to properly break out beyond its intensely local origins. However, not everyone shared our enthusiasm for Rashad and Spinn and their rapid-fire creations; it's comical to look back at the comments now, but the podcast ignited something a firestorm amongst electronic music fans, as many felt that juke and footwork weren't "real" music and didn't deserve the attention. They couldn't have been more wrong.
