Footwork as Contemporary Classical

DJ Trouble - Bangs and Wurks

I have no information on this guy except that he seems to travel in the same circles of the Heat Squad (DJ Nate's old crew) and Bang City. A dreamy slower track with a Disney sounding loop, which is what most of his music sounds like though sometimes with a substituted obvious classical sample (not that I would know it). There's something creepy about his music, which is ultimately overshadowed by Trak Genious hype. Not that I escape it, but there are other talented kids making Footwork that I'll eventually elaborate more on. At least there was, a lot of them including Nate have been pursuing Rap careers lately.

And a video with a Trouble mix overdubbed of the Heat Squad vs Bang City in a weird looking TV studio.

I thought the sampled loop was from a Bobby Valentino song.

Now it's killing me what it really IS!

Boima, it's totally something I've heard too, but I have no clue.

If i listen to this track at night in my room I get scared. I'll put some more of his stuff up eventually.

Ok, it IS a Bobby Valentino song!

Definitely the Bobby Valentino song, though obv that was sampled from somewhere else by Tim n Bob...sounds potentially Bollywoodish to me.
