Japanese Juke & Footworks Compilation

New Musicadmin7 Comments

The sounds of footwork, juke, and ghetto house have come a long way since their Chicago origins, and have caught on in a big way on an international level. Loads of electronic producers have been experimenting with the jittery, high-energy sounds--most notably Machinedrum, Africa Hitech, and Kuedo. However, most of the well-known producers experimenting with this stuff have been European.

Apparently, Japanese producers have been catching onto these sounds in a big way, bringing them into even more experimental territory. I mean mind-melting stuff. The 45-track compilation streaming above should be proof of just how into juke and footwork some Japanese producers are.
