ghettophiles is a chicago label + artist collective tagged as juke/footwork. but beyond labels, when everything falls into place, it surpasses dance music and enters the realm of true, emotive electronic creations.
simple and effective, this sade recontextualization by newcomer jody breeze transports the listener to an elevated earth where there are no walls, just bass. the result strikes many chords: it’s danceable yet hypnotic and soothing, matured modern dance music with intentions to create a world that is beautiful and new and futuristic yet still heavily indebted to the past.
whatever it is, this track is sounding like the pinnacle of music right now.
