RP Boo played Le Guess Who? festival in Utrecht on Sunday, November 11. It was a bass heavy workout session which rightfully concluded an extended weekend of experiments in sound and rhythm.
We dig into the fast and passionate world of the Chicago footwork scene, exploring its roots and evolution along one of its original movers and shakers: RP Boo. The futuristic genre which originates in the sounds of ghetto house, hip hop and Dance Mania '90s tape culture created a next-level sound, synchronized to a street dance which took dance-floor participation to a next level. Over a sunny Skype conversation, RP Boo gives inspiring insight on making music, empowering the scene and staying true.
“I know Chicago like in my sleep and I think the footwork scene has tremendously just died. Everything now is on social media. ”
