Built around a thin organ note and intermittent snares that keep things exciting, "A Hammond Jam" is almost too basic. But like the earliest footwork tunes, it's all about the sub-bass, jabbing low notes that say far more than a drum sound or melodic sample. "Get Dat Ass Up!" pulls a similar trick with a worn-out chord progression that looks back to classic Chicago house, while "Tha Rhodez Jam!" is another OG-style cutup, this time with a Rhodes keyboard that sounds like it's been taken over by a breakcore producer.
That's not to say that The Underdogg doesn't try anything new. There's also "It's House Hybrid," where the kick drum comes down in an unusual 4/4 pattern (at 160 BPM of course), making way for a blitz of breaks before swooping back in for a thumping finale. This simple adjustment to the formula makes it one of this year's more memorable footwork tracks.
