The sound of Chicago Juke! After releasing albums by DJ Nate and DJ Roc, plus an EP by DJ Rashad, Planet Mu are proud to present their first compilation of music from the competitive world of Chicago’s 'footwork' scene!

To those that don’t know, 'footwork' is a hyper rhythmic, abstract dance music, pitched around 160bpm, that largely consists of a template of cut-up samples and phrases that are twisted into repetitive rhythms & shapes, to offbeat, syncopated drum machine patterns and pumping sub-bass lines.  Until now bar a few low key vinyl 12”s and local mix cds plus tracks posted on sites like youtube and imeem, 'footwork' has remained very local to Chicago. 

Planet Mu have done an ace job of compiling the best tracks from some of Chicago's leading footwork artists. A brilliant introduction to the blood-pumpin', ankle-crackin' ghetto mayhem for those new to the genre and neat package for fans of the music!
