Juke/Footwork

Postby casiokerry » 15 Apr 2012, 15:55

Just wondering what you lovely ravers thought of the whole Juke/footwork thing. (DJ Rashad, DJ Spinn, Planet Mu etc..)

Some people think it's the emperor's new clothes, whilst others are saying it's the new Breakcore...

I like it, but then I also like Ghetto Tech etc, so that's no surprise. Are many DJs playing this kind of stuff in the UK at the mo?

I've heard some pretty crazy stuff... Some of it sounds like negative jungle, with minimal percussion but crazy basslines.
The quirky percussion bits also allow for some great crossover / mashup possibilties, like the Phillip D Kick footwork jungle remixes...
I'm excited and curious about the crosspollinations this might create... :)

Fucking hard to dance to, though :D

I love it, busy trying to incorporate it into my sets but I'm a sucker for ghetto tech type stuff so no suprises there.

I quite like it but don't think it's as groundbreaking and fresh as some people seem to. I rarely listen to it at home but will happily shake my ass to it if someone drops a few tunes in their set. I've been playing a few juke tunes recently bridging the gap from bassline to jungle in my sets for which it works a treat. I guess it's still early days though and maybe i haven't heard enough of it to make an educated comment. I'm always up for new vibezzzz but it's most certainly not the new breakcore imo.

Buuut death juke... needs to be more death juke...

Love this stuff... especially the Dream Continuum EP that Machinedrum and Om Unit released last month.... pure classic rave vibes in an absolutely 2012 style!

Caught DJ Rashad last year sometime... amazing stuff. I love how this has people dancing properly again... being at a Footwork rave is like being in a hiphop club on speed.
