RP BOO - LEGACY (CD)


"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. RP BOO's music is singular and unusual in Footwork, featuring raps and dialogue adopted from Juke, often in combination with sharp-edged and incidental samples giving some tracks a paranoid atmosphere. Take "187 Homicide"'s bleak feeling and question and answer vocals, "Area 72"'s alien landing scenario or "Speaker's R-4"'s audio walk-through. His music is often hectic, seemingly built to almost psyche-out the listener or offer challenges to dancers; it's this playful and imaginative quality, along with his sometimes baffling-but-it-works rhythms and sub, that give RP BOO's tracks their totally unique feel."
