Sad news out of Chicago over the weekend about the death of house and footwork pioneer DJ Rashad at the age of 35 from a suspected drug overdrose. Rashad Harden had been on a roll of late with an excellent album (“Double Cup”) released in late 2013 bringing the veteran DJ and producer, who has been releasing tracks since the early 1990s, to a wider audience. The album was fresh and futuristic, pulling ideas from all over the musical map, from bass to house to techno to soul-jazz, to form a new alluring canvas. His new EP “We On One” is due for release on Hyperdub in the coming weeks.
