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
