Ever since the news broke that venerable UK label Planet Mu had signed young juke experimentalist DJ Nate, a whole new wave of juke- and footwork-related excitement has taken hold in the music world. When it was later revealed that the label had also snatched up music from fellow Chicago producers DJ Roc and DJ Rashad, the hype reached a whole new level. Admittedly, XLR8R hasn't been immune to all the chatter about this hyperactive sound from the Windy City and we've also tapped him to put together an exclusive mix for this week's edition of our podcast series. Assembled with the help of his frequent partner DJ Spinn, the mix is a relentless flurry of unreleased tracks, high-speed percussion, and chopped-up vocal samples that's more than likely to break some ankles.
