Podcast 191: Chrissy Murderbot

Whatever you think of Chrissy Murderbot, there's no denying one simple fact—the man has a lot of energy. How else can one explain the fact that the Chicago-based DJ and producer spent most of 2009-2010 dropping a mixtape a week for an entire year? These days, he's (slightly) slowed down the output of material, but he still maintains a clear affinity for high-octane sounds, whether it's raved-up bass music, hyperactive grime, or the breakneck juke and footwork of his hometown. On this exclusive mix for the XLR8R podcast series, Murderbot covers all that ground and more, including plenty of unreleased tunes and some offerings from his own Loose Squares imprint. (Side note: He also runs the Sleazetone label.) Make no mistake, the mix represents hard for juke and footwork, but Murderbot explores a lot more musical territory here. We're looking forward to similar sonic diversity when his debut album, Women's Studies, is released in May via Planet Mu. If you haven't done so already, peep the album's first video, then grab an energy drink and dig into this podcast.
