When the footwork craze first erupted out of Chicago, few were able to put names to the music behind the wild dancing. Gradually, though, DJ Spinn and DJ Rashad (who passed away tragically in 2014) emerged as prime movers – South Side residents with a crate full of beats designed to move the crowd, but the curiosity and knowledge to look beyond their neighborhood. First they traveled to Detroit, and then the world, encouraged by admirers from the UK bass scene. In this riveting episode of Couch Wisdom recorded at the 2011 Red Bull Music Academy in Madrid, they reflect on the origins of juke and footwork, look at where it’s at now and claim that it’s high time urban music’s major players came calling.
