that review seems to take a lot to say "it's pretty fast and broken" ...and of course fresh/new/vital(!)/different. in actual (physical) dance context (rather than just dance music review context) is what footwork brings to the table really that much more than a more-broken/faster (yet tempered) drum n bass? we know that going off 4/4 itself isn't actually new/unique. reviewer says that most listeners just don't know what to do with it (yet) but will they ever, really, is that capability really there, did the 4/4 toe tappers and coma-inducted skankers really ever end up knowing how to dance to breaks or d+b?

so, "shangaan electro"

the third kind of dubstep (Jordan), Thursday, 19 January 2012 18:04 (2 years ago) Permalink

Is there a direct link here? (besides the fact that HJ have asked rashad and spinn to contribute to their remix series - I mean, there's also a Demdike Stare installment) Obviously footwork and shangaan share a love of crazy percussion but as far as I know the latter is much more into "proper songs" than the cut-up sample style I've heard on Bangs+Works etc.

i could have put it on the african thread or the dance partisans but went with 'fast electronic dance music' and didn't think to hard about it. we can move it if anyone wants to discuss somewhere else.

the third kind of dubstep (Jordan), Thursday, 19 January 2012 18:21 (2 years ago) Permalink

There was a bit of discussion in the rolling world music thread when the Shangaan Electro comp came out and a couple of us repped for it in the 2010 poll, but that seems to be all the coverage it's had on ILM.

Angrrau Birds (seandalai), Thursday, 19 January 2012 18:30 (2 years ago) Permalink

actually i don't find it nearly as exhilarating as this senegalese stuff (which i think i posted in the african thread):

anyone happen to know where i can find the juked up version of ciara's "get up" that i've heard dj rashad play a few times? guessing it's his own but haven't had any luck tracking it down.

haha your welcome, there are so many tracks that are probably totally obvious that I have not been able to find lol

DO NOT CALL (The Brainwasher), Friday, 3 February 2012 04:08 (2 years ago) Permalink

more footwork recommendations pls! think i've exhausted B&W2 now.

I know DJ Earl has an album coming out, and it reminds me of the slinkier, jazzed-out end of drum'n'bass (Reprazent etc). Lots of soul samples etc... Not really what you'd expect of footwork, but kind of refreshing.

funny people are comparing shangaan electro with footwork as that was the connection I made when I first heard of the style - got into both concurrently.

I like this guy

still grappling with this as a genre but really probably listened to these tracks as much as anything in 2011

wish more footwork producers would do that wheezy blurry techno synth thing

Had a go at making my own footwork track out of vintage ska samples. Not sure I've got the hang of it yet, but thought I'd post it here anyway http://soundcloud.com/doglatin/jukeska

OMG dj traxman your new album is a treat

the late great, Saturday, 21 April 2012 02:34 (2 years ago) Permalink

I'm loving it too. Also 14tracks.com are doing a footwork comp I wanna check out.

Scary Move 4 (dog latin), Saturday, 21 April 2012 03:06 (2 years ago) Permalink

am i tripping or does the first track on the traxman album sample the kalimba from roland p young's "crystal motions"?

the late great, Monday, 23 April 2012 04:33 (2 years ago) Permalink

footworkin on air

crystal motions

the Traxman album kills but ^that bit did make me think of, like, the middle of a Fatboy Slim set from the 90s

i knew it wouldnt be long before someone says my favorite track on the album is sucky, but i didnt think it would be with one post

azealia canks (Whiney G. Weingarten), Monday, 23 April 2012 09:05 (2 years ago) Permalink

xp not particularly no! it's fun when new stuff that is 'cool' accidentally sounds like old stuff that is now 'uncool'

W. E. B. Du Bois Goals Panel (DJ Mencap), Monday, 23 April 2012 09:05 (2 years ago) Permalink

yeah, definitely, and anyway I think Fatboy Slim was/ is a good, fun party DJ if you can ignore his rather embarrassing excesses. Dance music history is cyclical, not linear!

Feels like it's gone a bit quiet from the footwork camp of late (other than Traxman of course)... What am I missing?

Scary Move 4 (dog latin), Thursday, 24 May 2012 16:30 (2 years ago) Permalink

Rashad has an album on the way pretty soon I think.

This mix is fire and has plenty of stuff from it.

40oz of tears (Jordan), Thursday, 24 May 2012 21:02 (2 years ago) Permalink

this is my first post here so I'd might as well make it count!

"Feels like it's gone a bit quiet from the footwork camp of late (other than Traxman of course)... What am I missing?"

there's all kinds of comps and stuff out now that you should be listening to!

http://japanesemutationbootyism.bandcamp.com/album/japanese-juke-footworks-compilation - the japanese are getting more and more interested in juke. this is a phenomenal comp that covers pretty much all areas of the sound from two and a half min retrigger masturbation sessions to far more abstract works. I can't seem to shake the question of if they realize the kind of music they're making in my mind. yes a lot of it is good but the whole thing seems like a chinese room argument in music.

http://sabacanrecords.bandcamp.com/album/fa-fa-chronicle - more jap juke. everything guchon does /everything on that label is worth listening to by the way; he's been in the game for a while now.

http://dubpornrecordscollection.com/album/belly-a-footwork-compilation - a belly inspired comp

http://radology.bandcamp.com/album/province - some russian cats who instantly took to the sound. if you enjoy this at all I highly suggest grabbing vtgnike's album "Sueta Nebitiya"

http://post-religion.bandcamp.com/album/c-h-o-r-i-z-o-ep - juke for kids who identify with net art.

those are all the recent free comps that come to mind. a lot of the people on those comps have tons of free tunes laying around if you look.

not chicago people to look into:

Andrew Juke
Broken Fingers
Damscray
Dream Continuum (supergroup of machinedrum and om unit aka phillip d kick)
Film4D2
Guchon
Hayato6go
Juke Ellington
Leatherface
LiL JaBBA (can't stress this guy enough)
Machinedrum
Noms
Satanicpornocultshop
Side9000
Skimatix
Vtgnike
Wheez-Ie
X-Man

hope that helps~

I decided to gamble on a 14tracks.com compilation called footwork diffusion - it's not a strictly footwork comp but I'm impressed with a good bunch of the tracks so far.

ha, i had the same thought.

for more non-chicago juke stuff, i liked munchi's 'rotterdam juke' EP from last year, and here's a nice pair of tracks from a local dude: http://goldendonna.bandcamp.com/

I've been Instapapering what little things people have written about footwork and I'm pretty much finding that as soon as a writer namechecks Burial, it's dropping the ball

WTF has Burial got to do with footwork? It's Dilla people generally tend to namecheck in these things, I thought?
