If there is one label in Europe that has helped the distribution of the Chicago footwork sound, it's Planet Mu. In his incessant search for new sounds, the illustrious Mike Paradinas started recruiting some of the luminaries of the scene for his label, releasing EPs and albums by the likes of DJ Nate, DJ Roc, DJ Rashad and DJ Diamond. But the great “scene document” came with “Bangs & Works Vol.1”, a compilation of 25 cuts that served as an introduction and roadmap of the truly exciting genre. After the great reception of the release, almost a year later comes the second chapter. The tracklist is, again, huge (26 tracks). Within it find - apart from the aforementioned Rashad, Roc and Traxman - new masters of the game like DJ Earl, Boylan and Young Smoke. “Bangs & Works Vol. 2 - The best of Chicago Footwork” will be out on 7th November. You can listen to excerpts on the Planet Mu website. The full track-list is to the right of this article.
