The impact of influential Chicago DJ Rashad is still felt nearly two years after his death in 2014 of a drug overdose. The co-founder of Chicago footwork collective Teklife, the collective has created a special compilation album titled Afterlife that will be released on April 8 through Teklife's newly created label.
Among those who have tracks on the album are Teklife veterans like DJ Spinn, DJ Manny and Traxman, in addition to more recent members like DJ Paypal, DJ Taso and DJ Earl.
This will be the first ever release under their newly launched label. Teklife have released tracks on Hyperdub in the past.
A percentage of the profits will be donated to DJ Rashad's family, so you have extra incentive to buy the LP.
Afterlife will be released on April 8. Fans can pre-order the LP here in vinyl, digital or CD.
