Some of these songs will be familiar to anyone who saw Rashad DJ.
The first are two really upbeat, rolling juke tracks; CCP2 has breezy worldless vocals chopped and diced over a rolling claps and kicks, and Cause I Know U Feel, with Gant-Man, chops a longing vocal refrain into a delirious frenzy of unexpected shapes, over pounding kicks and toms as a warm synth swells up. The vocals recede towards the end leaving just a synth glow.
Ya Hot, with Taso, chops and changes rhythms, dipping into half speed trap, to rolling 4/4 and into more offbeat patterns, while a hectic, bleeping melody bangs out in contrast, almost as if its tracing the pattern of dancing feet.
Do Not Fuck is a paranoid 'footwork as a virtual panic attack' track, drawing fxs through a tunnel of accelerated bleeps, the only constant being a deadly serious guitar breakdown, a deep bass tone and the warning words of the title.
The energy of DJ Rashad will remain strong through his music.
