Boomkat product review for:

dj rashad - TEKLIFE Vol. 1: Welcome to the Chi

DJ Rashad offers a warm but fierce 'Welcome to the Chi' with his hugely anticipated debut album proper. Since the explosion of interest in his home city's scene around 2009-2010, DJ Rashad has pretty much become the standard bearer for the current wave of Chicago Ghetto-Tek operators. A master of the MPC and a ludicrously talented DJ, his beats are built to bang the floor into action. On Teklife Volume 1 he shreds through samples like a boss, from the Juicy J-snatching smasher 'We Trippy Mane' to the outrageous Drexiciya-gone-Jungle-Juke dynamics of 'Bakk Off (feat. AK)' and the Tronco traxx-lifting 'Walk For Me' (using the same sample as Joy O & Boddika's 'Swims'), beside stacks more. But crucially it's what he does with 'em, flipping them into ruffneck staccatos and incendiary dancefloor clusterf*cks that any dancer worth his sweat will be helpless to resist. Factor in railroading 160bpm drum machine patterns and body-dominating bass pneumatics and it's LOT, we tell ya! Highly recommended!!!
