Footwork stalwart DJ Tre announces Hyperdub debut EP, The Underdogg, because people like to dance in the U.K., too

Much like me when I’m trying to put out the pillar candles in the 12th century Gothic-style wall sconces that hang in my apartment, footwork is really blowing up these days — what with all the biggest dance labels in the world dipping their proverbial toes in the figurative juke pool. (And imagine dancing like that in a pool!)

To that end, Hyperdub will soon have a hand in making Teklife crew member DJ Tre a household name (if your house is actually an underground club and/or popular street dance venue), because they’re releasing the footwork maestro’s upcoming EP, The Underdogg.

Tre’s no stranger to the Hyperdub crowd, either: you may remember his two contributions to the DJ Rashad tribute Next Life, in particular. But if you don’t, that’s cool too, because The Underdogg will give you all the primer you need when it hits digital and physical shelves October 27, but make sure to pre-order at Bandcamp to get that digital bonus track (you are a Hyperdub completionist, aren’t you?!).

Of course, if you clicked this article ‘cause you’re on your break and you really need to dance right the fuck now, I guess you could always check out the first track from the EP, “It’s House Hybrid,” down below. But please try to remain in place long enough to read the tracklisting as well, if you don’t mind.

The Underdogg tracklisting:

01. It’s House Hybrid
02. A Hammond Jam
03. Get Dat Ass Up!
04. Tha Rhodez Jam!
05. The Robot Malfunction [Digital Bonus Track]
