Resident Advisor podcast: DJ Taye

Text from the RA web site:
Teklife, the Chicago crew founded by Rashad, Spinn, Traxman et al as Ghettoteknitianz, has become synonymous with footwork itself. It only takes one listen to the group's recent Next Lifecompilation to see the musical and geographical reach they have now. Even as they make waves globally, however, Teklife's core remains in Chicago, where they're inspiring a younger generation of artists who are practically growing up on footwork. Dante Sanders, AKA DJ Taye, proudly calls himself Teklife's "youngest member." He's been producing and playing out since he was a preteen, and with a remarkably graceful mixing style and quality tracks under his belt, he's among the most exciting prospects of Teklife's new breed. 

Taye's RA podcast makes it pretty obvious why. He focuses on the genre's soulful side, overflowing with melody, bright synths and hooky basslines. The hour-long mix fully showcases Teklife's extensive roster—including other hotly tipped artists like DJ Earl and DJ Paypal—making Taye's mix feel celebratory. Like Next Life, it's a document of footwork's continued evolution and a reminder of the late DJ Rashad's towering influence over the genre.
