DJ Rim / DJ Elroi – Bakk on Trak

Originators of footwork DJ RIM and DJ ELROI storm back on Bearfaced with the 18th volume of their seminal “ORIDGANAL JUKE KRONIKALZ” series. Exclusive juke, jukestep and post-juke tracks to make you dance Chicago style.

“We back up in this!” screams DJ RIM, violently turning the wheel of his gleaming 1958 Cadillac, a low-rider sporting the pneumatics mandatory in the post-juke world. “Ride that shit like a donkey ass motherfucker,” replies DJ ELROI. The pair have good reason to be confident. With the imminent release of the 18th volume of their collected works, DJs Rim and Elroi are at the top of their game. Going beyond juke, the pair have pioneered the post-juke movement, alongside other popular Chicago-based producers like JUKE NUKEM.

“It’s not that we can’t stop,” says DJ Rim, now back in the relative calm of their Chicago studio. “We won’t stop, and that’s what these sly ass bitches don’t realise.” DJ Elroi agrees. “We come up from behind, like a sabre-tooth tiger,” he says. “You don’t even know what bit you, because you already dead. And that shit? That, my friend, is what we call swag.”

DJ Rim / DJ Elroi – Roll Da Tomz

Tune into the latest craze to take London’s urban sophisticates by storm – the gritty sounds of Chicago’s juke/footwork. Dubstep? That’s so 2010! The freshest new footwork sounds are only on BEARFACED!

Juke originators DJ RIM and DJ ELROI return to the fray with the third instalment in their “JUKE KRONIKALZ” series, this time exclusively appearing on Bearfaced.

“After being out of the game for so long, we’re disgusted at the so-called juke being pushed by the new kids on the block,” says DJ RIM. “It’s about time someone showed them who’s Da Oridginal Boss.”

DJ ELROI agrees. “We’ve been in this game for over a decade – 12 years in fact – and it ain’t easy. The younger players on the scene think they got it made, but it’s time they learned a thing or two from the true masters. It’s time to step aside and let the teachers do the talkin.”

The EP is exclusively available as a free download from www.bearfaced.com, ahead of a limited 180g club pressing later this year.
