Teklife Announce DJ Rashad Posthumous 2xLP Afterlife

Teklife Announce DJ Rashad Posthumous 2xLP Afterlife

DJ Rashad was destined to live forever. His music is the kind that seems infinite -- free of social and political woes, of economic hardship, and of consumerist image-making. A member of the hardworking Teklife crew, Rashad's pioneering footwork tracks zipped by at 160bpm with frenetic, transcendent energy. A prolific producer and DJ, Rashad oversaw the rise of Teklife to the international stage. Since his sudden death, very little of Rashad's work has surfaced, aside from an EP of unreleased tracks on Hyperdub, 2015's 6613. Perhaps they were letting us all pause for breath. Teklife have now announced , a 14-track double LP of collaborations between Rashad and DJ Spinn, DJ Earl, DJ PayPal, and more. The result of what was no doubt some emotional, painstaking curation, this dedication looks to be nothing less than definitive. Pre-orders are up for an April 8th release date. This will also be Teklife's first physical release, and they've provided us with a bonus Rashad collaboration with Machinedrum, which you can stream below.
