[FOOTWORK] Though footwork, the quick, staccato descendant of juke music, was seeded in Chicago nearly two decades ago, it’s only sprouted into national consciousness in the last four years or so. Fully riding that 160 bpm wave is Traxman, a footwork and ghettohouse O.G. He stands apart in a scene dominated by fluttering 808 rhythms because he’s as focused on jazzy melody as on rhythm. He sees footwork as a house-music purebred: On “Slash Time,” digital and analog synths oscillate in the foreground, balancing out the jackhammer beat where other producers would have rammed it down the ears.
