In 2014, Chicago footwork crew Teklife commemorated the death of DJ Rashad (perhaps the genre’s most prolific force) with a compilation titled Next Life via Hyerdub. After recently announcing their evolution as a label, Teklife will drop their maiden release on April 8, a posthumous DJ Rashad album, which features fellow footwork producers DJ Spinn, Taso, Gant-Man, DJ Phil, and Traxman among several others. The collaborative full-length, dubbed Afterlife, doubles as a tribute album with proceeds going to DJ Rashad’s family.
Stream and download Afterlife‘s bonus track, “High On Hope,” a collaboration between Machinedrum and Microglobe.
