Jamie Grind "Remember Those Days"

In 2011, it's a safe bet that much of what was trendy in 2010 will become solidified pieces of the musical landscape. Chicago juke ranks high on this list, as it's already being overtly referenced by Leeds producer Jamie Grind, whose second EP, Footwork, is out this week on Fortified Audio. Due to its pointed reference to the Windy City-birthed dance style and sound, the EP's name alone is enough to garner some additional interest, but the producer's interpretation of the genre is refreshingly oblique nonetheless. "Remember Those Days," a bonus cut that isn't on the EP, is actually more closely related to house than footwork, but that doesn't stop us from enjoying its unstable, inebriated synths, rave-friendly keyboard stabs, and innocuous female chirps.
