"Chicago footwork legend DJ Rashad rounds off an impressive year on Hyperdub with his first album for the label, building on two EPs which have shown the extent to which his and his numerous Teklife collaborators' sound have evolved in 2013. Named after the recreational cocktail of codeine and sprite, 'Double Cup' sees trad 808 footwork workouts thrown into collision with more recent mutations of the sound, presenting Rashad's most comprehensive showcase of the diversity and strength of the Chicago scene in 2013. The album drags hip hop, R&B, acid, house, techno and jungle into its footwork turbine, spitting them all out in recombinant fragments glued together with purring 808 sub triplets and jerky polyrhythms. 'Double Cup' is another indication that not only is this music still some of the most exciting, forward thinking music for the dancefloor that's around right now, but that footwork can eat anything."
