DJ Rashad - Double Cup

image

Post-electronic; somewhat post-music or rather, anti-music. This is music for active listening and, for those who invented the culture I’m now commentating upon years-late, participation.


The more in-your-face (and downright pop-friendly) trap-electronic comes from a similar perspective of non-stop peaks and endless energy. The difference between trap-electronic and this is simple: trap-electronic feels like a brightly-lit spectacle, whereas Rashad & Co. “don’t give a fuck.”

The reason footwork comes off so bizarre to most ‘serious music fans’ is because this is basically jazz music you can dance to. I feel blessed to have experienced this album; to have a glimpse into a world I would’ve never seen first-hand (only accessibly imitated by Diplo-clones). This is the real deal folks. If you really want to experience something new, take a sip from DJ Rashad’s Double Cup.
