Chicago's footwork music, an heir to the city's ghetto house scene, is famously fast, cheap and out of control, with ribald vocal fragments looped over rapid-fire hi-hats and staccato samples. Footwork pioneer Traxman's Da Mind has that frenetic, off-the-cuff quality: "Callin All Freaks" is essentially Miami bass in a rock tumbler. But he also pushes footwork's polyrhythms to dizzy new heights, on the mbira-sampling "Footworkin on Air," and his sonic curiosities take him from circus music to AC/DC to Ofra Haza to Ronnie Laws.
