It’s not long until footwork don DJ Rashad the Rollin EP – his first for Hyperdub, and arguably his most satisfying release to date. 

‘Rollin”s not our favourite track on the record – we’re particularly enamoured with twinkling jungle pastiche ‘Let It Go’ and four minute paradiddle ‘Drums Please’ – but it’s still a joint to be reckoned with. Where the bulk of the tracks on last year’s Welcome To The Chi went for brute force over sophistication, ‘Rollin”s a carefully structured little thing, characterised by unlikely turns and neat tension/release.

Click below to hear a radio rip of the track in its entirety, taken from Benji B’s recent Radio 1 show. Rollin‘ is due on March 18; snippets of the EP are available here. Rashad’s upcoming tour dates are also below.
