Hyperdub to put out unreleased DJ Rashad material

Steve Goodman plans to release more music by the late footwork legend.

Following DJ Rashad’s tragic passing in April, Hyperdub boss Kode9 has outlined several projects to commemorate the Chicago DJ and provide some financial support to his family.

In an interview with German website hhv.de mag, Goodman says he’s planning to put out a record of unreleased material by Rashad, with proceeds going to his son, and a Teklife compilation featuring the other members of the key Chicago footwork crew. Hyperdub have no further information on the details of the Rashad release just yet.

Proceeds from Hyperdub’s Sonar party last week will also go towards Rashad’s family. “His memory should be kept alive as long possible,” Goodman adds.

Rashad released the Double Cup LP and two EPs – Rollin’ and I Don’t Give A Fuck – on Hyperdub last year. Stream Boiler Room’s tribute to him featuring Kode9, Ikonika and Addison Groove, and watch a documentary on Rashad and his partner in crime DJ Spinn.
