Please be sure to check out the Era's new EP and their collaboration with Rashad on 'I'm Blowed (Steemix).'
We want to give a huge thanks to our close friend, Machinedrum, for putting together 'Movin' Forward: A Tribute to DJ Rashad.' The project includes Machinedrum and DJ Rashad collaborations as well as a couple of Machinedrum tracks that were heavily influenced by the Teklife family. All of the proceeds will go to Rashad's son, Chad.
Thanks to our good friends, Tim and Barry, for putting together this amazing documentary about Rashad, the rest of the Teklife family and the Footwork movement as a whole.
The Hyperdub and Teklife compilation, 'Next Life,' is now streaming on 'Pitchfork' Advance.
The album will be available for purchase tomorrow, and all proceeds will go to Rashad's son, Chad....
