  • UK bass label Planet Mu is set to release the first official collection of Chicago footwork music, entitled Bangs & Works Vol.1. Footwork, for those unaware, is a style of high-tempo beats emanating from the Windy City. The music is made to accompany an extremely fast and competitive style of dancing, which according to a press release takes place primarily in "vacant warehouses, karate gyms and YouTube." The phenomenon was highly local to Chicago until this year, when Planet Mu began putting out records by some of footwork's key artists, including DJ Nate's debut album Da Trak Genius. Bangs & Works Vol.1 showcases more of the genre's key artists, including DJ Rashad, The Pope and RP Boo, whose late '90s track "Baby Come On" was allegedly the first footwork tune. The compilation will see release this winter as a triple-vinyl set, as well digitally and on CD. Tracklist 01. DJ Elmoe - Whea Yo Ghost At, Whea Yo Dead Man 02. DJ Rashad - Teknitian 03.
