In his recent interview with FACT, DJ Rashad promised big things for new footwork label Lit City Trax.
The boxfresh imprint, created in collaboration with DJ Spinn and associate J-Cush, promises to offer the definitive word on Chicago-grown footwork productions. The opening salvo from the label, TEKLIFE Vol. 1: Welcome To The Chi, will arrive courtesy of DJ Rashad.
In contrast to 2011’s concise Just A Taste , the new record will showcase an exhausting 20 tracks of rattling footwork. The album is also set to feature co-productions with the likes of DJ Spinn and DJ Manny. Rashad-spotters will notice that his exceptional Juicy J-nod ‘We Trippy Mane’ (recently featured in their We Trippy Mane mix) makes the cut.
TEKLIFE Vol. 1: Welcome To The Chi is due on June 5; the tracklist is available below. Lit City’s next release, The Manny N Rashad Show, is set to follow later this year.
