Audio: A Mixtape by Walls -
Hit the link above for a great mixtape from Nightmare Before Christmas artists Walls who play the Battles day of the festival.
DJ Rashad has been instrumental to the creation and evolution of Chicago Juke music and has been lifelong friends with other key players on the scene, such as Paul Johnson, DJ Gant-Man, DJ Spinn, DJ Godfather, and Jammin Gerald. He has the ability to blend elements of house, ghetto house, disco, juke, and ghettotech together with a knack for creating sparse, snappy tracks that manage to convey a physicality and funk with a spectacular precision.
Along with his teammates DJ Spinn and DJ Gant-Man, DJ Rashad has become notorious for making juke anthems that have made fans outside the world of Chicago mix cds. He’s DJ’ed across Europe and released records on Juke Trax and Databass records earlier on in his career and some big remixes and collaborations are in the pipeline.
A staple in footwork circles since the late 90s, and regular DJ at house parties throughout Chicagoland. South suburb resident Spinn started his career dancing for the legendary early dance crew House–O–Matics, later on becoming part of Wolf Pac with his partner in crime DJ Rashad. Known for having a knack for breaking down everything from hip-hop tracks to Pink Floyd into circle worthy material, his basement studio is a regular hangout for many prominent dancers and producers of today.
