TRAXMAN - DA MIND OF TRAXMAN (2LP)


"Cornelius Ferguson a.k.a. Traxman is from the west side of Chicago and one of the longest serving producers working in footwork with releases stretching back to the glory days of ghetto house on Dance Mania records in the nineties. He's also one of the co-founders of Chicago's two-decades-old Geto DJz clique and a member of DJ Rashad & DJ Spinn's Ghetto Teknitianz and was one of the creators of the legendary mixtapes on coloured cassettes which were the prototype for footwork's evolution. His unique brand of footwork is very strongly rooted in Chicago's history of soul, funk, house and ghetto trax. Traxman's own productions are an incredibly well rounded suture between hip hop's natural funk and resourceful sample flipping, the hyper-kinetic innovation of footwork's stop-start, half-time to double-speed drum programming and a deep respect and understanding of Chicago's house music past, that few producers can match; 'Da Mind Of Traxman' is a testament to this man's skills."
