DJ Earl – ‘Ambient EP’

So a bunch of people have been taking a crack at the footwork thing this year, but it’s Chicago where you must seek the origins of the genre as well as the producers who continue to create it most fruitfully. Enter Dj Earl, the 22 year old dancer-turned-producer who’s already garnered support from the windy city pop with only a few releases, as well as notable inclusion to the Dj Rashad and Dj Spinn-lead Teklife collective, of which the current state of footwork music in Chicago is represented most prevalently by. The tracks on his latest Ambient EP are clocked at 160, making them choice battleground anthems, but his house-leaning use of soul samples and devilish synthesizers on some tracks make also for a heady listen. What will tire first, the neck or the foot?
