MikIX The Cat "Footwork"
After a slew of singles over the past five years, Parisian DJ/producer MikIX The Cat has just issued his debut full-length, the Shamanism LP, via his own ADD Cat label. Featured here, album track "Footwork" is a seven-minute, bass-heavy techno workout which features a driving, lightly syncopated beat, moody organ lines, and some relentless claps. Although the tune doesn't really sound much like the Chicago sub-genre it gets its name from (it's about 30 bpm too slow, for one thing), it does share with it both a hypnotic approach to rhythm and a seriously uncompromising aesthetic.
