RP Boo - 10.11.16

OG footwork DJ/producer RP Boo aka Kavain Space brought 3½ hours of footwork fire to OTO in November. Mixing his own tracks with cuts from Rashad and samples of Roy Ayres, Del La Soul, Jocelyn Brown and Gerald Levert to name a few, Boo kept his crowd on their toes the whole way - occasionally joining them to dance his adidas into thin air. Simple, sweaty and infectious - if you're stuck for something to play in the wee hours of New Years Day we reckon this will mix in nicely after 'Auld Lang Syne.'

“Few if any other producers can touch an RP Boo beat for its sheer exhilaration factor.” – The Quietus

RP Boo – a.k.a. Kavain Space is a man who is revered and respected amongst the dance music cognoscenti. He’s cited as one of the originators of Footwork, the fast, repetitive, rhythmically syncopated music & dance style that’s a grandchild of Chicago house and which has been brought to the wider world via releases from Planet Mu and others, alongside internet archaeology from fans, experts and enthusiasts.

Rising to prominence in 2010 with the release of the Bangs & Works compilation on Planet Mu, the Chicago producer has been on the forefront of the footwork sound since its inception, with early singles like "Baby Come On" turning into regional hits way before the genre become widely known. Inspiring countless producers like DJ Spinn or the late DJ Rashad, RP Boo's signature sound is rooted in footwork's most vital principles while pushing it into LegacyFingers, Bank Pads & Shoe Prints.

“RP Boo's music is challenging. Not in the sense that it's esoteric, but in the sense that its twisted rhythms offer an actual challenge to dancers.” – Resident Advisor
