Chicago Footwork Producer RP Boo x Nozinja's Shangaan Electro Mix
Stream Chicago footwork legend RP Boo's 30-minute mixtape of unreleased shangaan electro tracks from Nozinja.
RP Boo, the producer largely credited for inventing Chicago footwork, dips his toes into the lighting-speed sounds of South Africa's shangaan electro in this 30-minute mix of unreleased Nozinja tracks. "It was an honor for me to be a part of a special mix project for Shangaan Electro," RP Boo tells The Fader. "I had never been asked to go outside of the planted sound of footwork and embrace another dynamic style of sound. I simply added some flavor to an already moveable source—bionic groove—and would do it again with pleasure. Just alone I enjoy the sounds of Shangaan Electro—keep fueling the movement of body and soul. Let's footwork together, world."
