Back To CHICAGO Mix (No Turn Unstoned #245)

  • House
  • Jazz
  • Electronica
  • 2h 03m
This is the 4th in special tribute mixes affiliated with DJ Rashad. DJ Rashad lived in Chicago, Chicago has a rich musical heritage (notably for house and juke), and I visited Chicago for the 4th of July for the first time in over 10 years. I hope you enjoy this mix created with love and respect for this amazing, musical city.
June 25th, 2014 is the 30th anniversary of Purple Rain. I'm a MASSIVE Prince Fan. So what do I do on the 30th anniversary of Purple Rain? Create a special mix of course. 1984 was an extraordinary year for Prince, not only did he release the album and film Purple Rain, he also released a crap-load of good music that he wrote, performed, and produced through other artists: The Time's Ice Cream Castles, Sheila E's The Glamorous Life, Apollonia 6's self-titled debut, and Sheena Easton's Sugar Walls. This mix not only celebrates the film, Purple Rain, but also the year of Prince and related music from 1984. It was a good year!
I'm catching up on posting the archives of some of my Prince Birthday mixes, while counting down to the 30th anniversary of Purple Rain on Wednesday, June 25, 2014. We'll be celebrating by doing a special Purple Rain mix of course.

JUKEstacy Mix (No Turn Unstoned #243)

Continuing with our tributes to DJ Rashad, this is the 3rd mix out of 4 which highlights the juke genre (which he helped create) and its influence on other genres.
First of all, thank you for releasing DJ Rashad's full length, Double Cup! Thank you for releasing Burial's South London Boroughs, Kyle Hall's Kaychunk, Mark Prtichard's Wind It Up, Champion's Friday 13th, and many, many more! I look forward to the next 10 years;)
Man, this one really hurt, deep down inside! Words could never, ever, ever, ever, convey... Too soon, too soon... However, his musical legacy will live on forever. The world is going to miss out on a LOT of amazing music. His growth as an artist has been ridiculous. What had to be coming next was going to be absolutely nothing but mind-blowing.

Double Cup, one of the best albums of 2013, is a musical masterpiece, stretching the boundaries of what constitutes juke/footwork. His influence on so many artists that I absolutely love, most notably Machinedrum and Addision Groove, was extraordinary, pushing them to push their musical boundaries. Machinedrum's Room(s), another masterpiece, wouldn't exist without DJ Rashad in my opinion. Jay Dee AKA J Dilla often gets praised for being the best at flipping a sample, but DJ Rashad could stand right beside him and flip it just as well. Some of his flips are just down right miraculous... Just listen to Case's "Touch Me Tease Me" and then listen to "Only One" from Double Cup. How did he do that?!

The Juke/Footwork genre and evident influence (mentioned above) have been the only new music lately that really puts a smile in my heart, and DJ Rashad was THE ONE. I looked forward to his releases like it was Christmas or my birthday.

I have to thank Planet Mu and Mike Paradinas for introducing me to this genre with the Bangs & Works Vol. 1 compilation. From there, I couldn't get enough juke/footwork. The energy is incredible; I got it and understood Paradinas' push! When I discovered DJ Rashad, his music was the one that stood out from the crowd for me. Obviously, there are others (DJ Diamond and DJ Spinn) who are also very good, but in the words of Highlander, there can only be one...
