Footwork music is a style of music originally from Chicago that features extensive use of drum fills, tom drums, handclaps, and snares. RP Boo is generally attributed as the founder of the genre. Contrary to its sister genre, juke, footwork does not employ a 4/4 kick and instead relies primarily on sub-bass for its low-end. Edit this Artist photo: Slava

    Bang & Works Vol.1's 2020 brought me here, reminds me of early 90's ambient techno mixed with the synth of early 90's hip hop with modern tempo. Good music to do blazing footwork.

    "there's a large gap between style from "Bangs & Works" and artists mentioned above" it definitely is a large gap, it's footwork 2.0 or footwork.2011 haha. Definitely the best thing to happen in 2011, I agree.

    Just discovered footwork through Mike Paradinas mix "Da Mind Of Traxman" on Mixcloud: I guess for Bangs & Works he chose less established/"newer" artists and tracks.

    Exactly, but there's a large gap between style from "Bangs & Works" and artists mentioned above... Anyway it's genre of a year IMO, need moar.

    Or Africa Hitech or Sepalcure's LP etc. I'm fine with footwork. The beats are usually straight footwork, even if there are other sounds added to it.

    But how should we call artists(tracks) like machinedrum - GBYE, Kuedo - Scissors, Dam Mantle - We, Krampfhaft - Spit Thunder and so on... Post Footwork? New wave of footwork? It's not straight footwork, but influences are very visible.
