“Free Mercy” / “Do It Again”

Chicago’s neo-polka daddies are BACK. Oops, they never left. Yo, what’s the huge obsession here at Tiny Mix Tapes about footwork/juke? Like, I get that we search for new sounds and shit, but, well okay: maybe this shit is the new sounds. Continuously new. Too many new. Welllllllll, not too-too many, because DJ Spinn’s “Free Mercy” (with DJ Rashad) is nasty gritty. Gritty anthem shit. Gritty anthem quakes. OMG — and I LOVE Ms. Pac-Man. They got a Ms. Pac-Man machine in the laundry mat a block away from me. $20 later, I still love Ms. Pac-Man. Hi!!

Ohhhh, another track? Figures that it’d happen with a track entitled “Do It Again,” this time by DJ Manny (with DJ Spinn and DJ Rashad). I recognize that footwork/juke ain’t hip-hop, per se, but you can definitely hear it. So look, can we keep molly outta hip-hop? I can see it in footwork/juke or Planet Mu-style stuff, but this is as close as molly gets to hip-hop. Thanks. Teklife specifically gets my heartboner props for being (almost) entirely on SoundCloud. Like a whole new wave of Myspace shit, minus-minus-MINUS JT. Please.

“Free Mercy” is coming out soon on DJ Spinn’s Teklife Vol. 2, while “Do It Again” will see release on The Manny & Rashad Show EP.
