Q&A with DJ Rashad
Last Sunday we posted the documentary ‘From Juke to Jack: 25 years of Ghetto House‘ where we get an insight on how the underground House scene in Chicago have evolved. Dj Rashad has been a quintessential figurehead in the evolution from Ghetto House to Footwork and its predecessor Juke. His open production approach has helped him craft a unique brand of Footwork that is deeply rooted in Chicago’s history of House as well as Soul, Funk, Jazz and HipHop, simultaneously pushing the boundaries of House music into entirely new regions.
We meet up with Dj Rashad at a Red Bull Academy event where he gladly took a couple of minutes off to be in our Q&A
- Where do you feel at home?
Chicago of course because I grew up there. Matter of fact Calumet City that where I grew up. All over the place Chicago Southside, 108 street. A lot of places to be honest, Chicago number one besides that New York, London, LA, California period
- Where do you want to travel next?
South America or New Zeeland. Because I haven’t played there yet and I always wanted to check them out, Amazing places.
- What’s your favorite party spot?
I don’t party, wherever I’m at is the party. I dont have a party spot, I like just chill be in the studio. It can be a random spot I don’t have to party to party
