Been digging through old Databass and Twilight 76 releases recently to see what's been pressed, and found this wickedly rushy DJ Boogie 12" from back in '02.

Starting to really feel the ol' Aceeeid and D.E.T.roit Tech heritage in all this Juke and Jilt sh*zzle. There are chicago house, dance mania, ghetto, bass and booty links in the footwork scene out there at the minute that I've heard talked about already - but going further back there's this whole really rich ravey musical lineage to both Chi-Town and the Motor City that I've not heard mention of yet in direct connection with the newer sound.

The links to the pioneers are definitely there though, and I think flashes come through particularly strongly with the mad sampling and general oddness of the newer trax over the far more booty / profanity based 4x4 stuff of yesteryear.

Check here, here and here for classic jukejilttechworktastic plastic - if you're that way inclined.
