The doctor is in with another heavy dose of music. Footwork and juke artist emcee and producter, Splash DR comes through with an EP to follow up on his debut LP, THE KID LABOR. One big leap after another, the DR follows through with a whole 5 track footwork and juke instrumental. Bringing you DA CHI GUY, a cheeky spinoff to Super Marios Shy Guys antagonists, to reference the city of Chicago. Even more so is Splash DR’s move up to Zona Music for this release, these bigs steps are anything but shy, my guy! Talking with Splash DR for his debut LP release, he noted an inspiration into footwork culture to be in part to artists like Traxman. With the move to Zona Music, the DR now shares recognition under the same label.
Keeping similar qualities from his LP, Splash DR sticks to his jazz and soul inspired juke style on tracks like FASHO. A whole different energy from the introductory track, ironically named LAST PLACE, a personal favorite with its dark bassline and hip hop style. Giving off a fast paced urban, concrete jungle energy, mixed with some synth pop, juke style is ANOTHER DAY, which is coupled with a visualizer music video. CHILD holds title for most creative track with its vocal samples and cross genre inspired beat. The Splash DR Finishes off DA CHI GUY on a high note with HOLE, another jazzy, hip hop influenced footwork track. The whole EP keeps your mind and legs occupied at every hi hat, beat, snare and bassline, laced in classic and hip hop sounds.
