foampositte

As juke/footwork flutters its good self to further reaches of the planet we find ourselves in Russia, where by all accounts there seems to be a growing collection of footwork producers in the online schema.

Foampositte (who I am finding very difficult to find more details on) has created a drastic collection of potent 160bpm bursts – all of which are over in a tragic total of eight minutes and fifty-one seconds.

Haphazard translations through the Cyrillic alphabet and back again tell me ‘rabota nog’ transforms into ‘Работа Ног’ when placed into native cyrillic, which then cleanly translates into ‘footwork’. RUSSIANS HAVE A WORD FOR FOOTWORK. And these ones also have a most excellent enjoyment of breaking glass/police sirens (à la airhorns).

As tight and tippin’ as the best as the best of them, the largest sonic removal in Rabota Nog is the use of Russian-language samples throughout. The inability to understand the lyrics of the tracks’ vocal elements leads me to wonder what the music slides along with in Foampositte’s Russian context. If anyone does happen to have a word/clue on this tweet your dude…

So far as I can figure, ‘Foampositte’ is a dedication to the Nike hightop of the analogous name. The Ruski footworker’s footwear of choice..? The written indicators throughout this release have opened up such curiosity…

Linguistically understandable or not – I feel Rabota Nog in a big way. The production is fresh. Without relying too too much on the forebears of the style, Foampositte manages to wrangle some serious soul out of the works. And with this looking like the commencement of a number of volumes, we can only hope to get down to some more Работа Ног in the approaching future. Ура!

@peace where i come from

 

Alongside the superbly exciting news that @peace are running a limited vinyl press of their revered album @Peace and the Plutonian Noise Symphony, the dudes have also released the most fittingly rooted ‘Where I Come From’.

“but, I like it better where the bus is always late…”

The track has got my own heart pining ever-homewards – to the home city in discussion – though the track’s sensibility is something we can all get down with, in a real sense.

A tour of “the majestic nation of Aotearoa” for the wax release has also been announced for October, with Louis Knuxx in support, for those Cloudians who do such things.

Vinyl preorders, limited to fifty pieces, are up right about now, no doubt for a similarly limited time – before they’re all just out there. So, yes.
