DJ Taye 

When: Sat., April 30, 9:30 p.m. 2016
Price: $8
In the two years since footwork and juke trailblazer DJ Rashad died, his legacy as one of the founding members of the Chicago-based crew Ghettoteknitianz has expanded the genre. See, for instance, the work of the rebranded Teklife conglomerate, spearheaded by DJ Earl and twenty-one-year-old prodigy DJ Taye. Nothing better expresses Rashad’s absence and impact than “XTCC,” from Taye’s Break It Down EP. The vocal sample—“There’s a void where there should be ecstasy”—is minced down to a near eulogistic chant, meant for dancing that can break your ankles. Yeah, the pace can be intimidating, but Taye’s made a mission out of making it all accessible. —Eric Tullis
