London footwork collective 160FT DEEP celebrates one year of interdimensional adventures in rhythm and sound with Chicago legend Traxman (Teklife) at Miranda on January 25th. Traxman will play a 2 hour set with support from Potential Badboy (Playaz), the 160FT Mafia and some very special secret guests. Expect sauce-drenched footwork, juke, jungle and 160 twisted up with the latest and greatest in ghetto house, UK funky, baltimore, jersey and hip-hop.
It’s no understatement to say that Traxman is a legend in the game. His recent and critically acclaimed ‘Tekvision EP’ (Teklife) is the latest in a long line of heavy hitting releases on labels such as Dance Mania, Ghettophiles, BTB, Moveltraxx and Planet Mu. From making his start on the West Side of Chicago as part of ghetto house crews Geto DJz and Ghetto Teknitianz to joining Teklife’s finest in taking the polyrhythmic funk of footwork to a worldwide audience Traxman is fast becoming a household name. All you really need to know is ‘Itz Crack’
Potential Badboy’s distinctive brand of reggae-infused jungle and dnb has been battering dances around the globe since the early nineties. Behind his position at the forefront of DJ Hype’s Playaz crew stretches a star-studded catalogue of work that cements his place as a true veteran of his craft. Early tracks alongside Shy FX, pop remixes for the likes of Shaggy and Estelle and unforgettable dancefloor anthems like ‘You’re Mine feat. Yush’ speak to an unrivaled legacy in the London music scene.
