DJ Rashad Readies New LP and Hits the Road with Hyperdub

Publish date:

Throughout 2013, Chicago footwork pioneer DJ Rashad and London's Hyperdub imprint have been actively strengthening their partnership. Recent months have already seen the release of two Rashad EPs, Rollin' and I Don't Give a Fuck, and this fall, those efforts will be followed by a new full-length, Double Cup. Scheduled for release on October 22, the album—Rashad's first since last year's acclaimed TEKLIFE Vol. 1—finds him collaborating with a number of producers and is said to drag "hip-hop, R&B, acid, house, techno, and jungle into its footwork turbine, spitting them out in recombinant fragments glued together with purring 808 sub triplets and jerky polyrhythms."

Apart from the album, Rashad will also be keeping busy on the touring front. He's currently in the midst of several European dates with fellow Windy City standout DJ Spinn, but in September he'll be joining Hyperdub's US tour, playing several dates with label founder Kode9 and labelmate Ikonika.
