    Default Juke

    I've seen few other threads talking about booty, ghettotech and juke. But there is this mindblowing street culture in chicago based on footworking and this abstract, dark and fucked up version of juke.







    imeem used to be a good place to listen to this stuff.

    yh, its youngers juke. These kids grew up listening to Gant Man mixtapes, DJ Clent & DJ Rashad trax & goin under-age dances with Baddmixx spinning.

    So now DJ Nate n them are making pure footwork rythms without the 'formal' education of goin thru ghetto house etc. like the older generation. Proper Avant-Street.

    Footwork and Juke are Chicago based and a similar dance from Detroit called Jit(t). There's loads of youtube footage of these dances. What I find is that they are quite similar to the 80's UK jazz dance scene with its emphasis on fast footwork, spins and drops.

    Yeah the made-for-footwork juke tracks are really out-there: lots of syncopated toms, disorientatingly (?) placed claps which are pitched waaay down, no kicks and doomy subdued bass - it's great stuff.

    btw Deadly Coalition is the best crew. Their clips used to be all over youtube but were taken down for some reason. I can't seem to find them anywhere on the net

    yes i know, dunno if they're based on jitting but there are some simularities but there are loads of similarties between regional dances etc, like turf dancing etc

    for me this is some of the most exciting music i've heard in a long time, wish i could find better sources for it

    imeem is the place for it though it seems

    what they're doing with vocals vibes and rhythm is ridiculous

    there can't be any odder music being made anywhere in the world than this. its so fucking weird. some of the stuff on imeem makes older juke sound tame, how is that?

    interesting seeing some of those videos for the first time, the tunes make a lot more sense in the context of the dancing. just heard a tune which just goes POWERMOVEPOWERMOVEPOWERMOVEPOWERMOVE lol

    does anyone know anywhere to download mix cds or anything like that?

    itunes seems to have some stuff now looking at it
