Genre:Electronic / Dance
A leading figure and respected elder in the Teklife family, Traxman has waitedpatientlywhile releases from young upstarts like Taso and Dj Earl have been enjoyed byfootwork lovers all over the world. Now the time has come for Traxman to take centrestage, presenting a collection of new material that demonstrates his mastery of thefootwork sound. Tekvision arrives hot on the heels of Teklife 005: Greenlight by DJManny, bringing an interesting contrast of production methods and styles. A prodigiouscrate digger, Traxman has provided the sample sources for many of Footwork's classictracks over the years. So while DJ Manny recorded the majority of the vocals onGreenlight himself, Traxman uses his expert sample flipping techniques to add the humanelement to his productions. Traxman is a mainstay of the Chicago underground, with adiscography stretching back to the golden era of Dance Mania Records in the 1990s.Ghetto House was an important precursor to Footwork, and Traxman was a key figureduring this transition. Echoes of the Ghetto House sound resonate through Tekvision,with tracks like Drop It Down and Twist The Party Out paying homage to the origins ofJuke and Footwork music. Be Gagen feat DJ Earl is a beautiful opening track, with asoulful, melancholic synth unfolding patiently over a half-speed beat. When the bass kicksin after 1 minute 10 seconds it has a profoundly uplifting effect, and the late arriving vocalrounds off the composition perfectly. Many of the tracks demonstrate brilliant and playfulmanipulation of vocal snippets, with Let Me Get Up and Control Ya Bitchezzz among thefinest examples of this art. Finally, Tone Deaf and Whop Line show yet another side toTraxman's sound with an intoxicating and angular mix of bass and bleeps.

Traxman - Da Mind Of Traxman Volume 2
Da Mind Of Traxman Volume 2
2LP | 2014 | UK | Original (Planet Mu)
24,99 €*
Release:2014 / UK – Original
Genre:Hip Hop, Electronic / Dance
Traxman’s debut album showcased Cornelius Ferguson’s brilliant ability to synthesise the beat digging of classic hip hop with the high-speed abstraction of Footwork’s house-derived beat science. The selection of tracks on this second chapter show a slightly different take on Traxman's abilities. Instead of bringing in concepts from other genres, he simply creates a wider variety of Footwork, made with a minimal, reduced palette. Often just one or two samples are selected and diced into brain-blurring cubist puzzles that bear little relation to their original sources, or anything else for that matter. A number of the tracks here show off the high-speed micro-edited possibilities of Footwork, that end up bringing the sound closer to a faster, hands-on, mpc-punched version of micro-house, bringing out a jagged, fitful character that keeps you on your toes.
