Wire 347 - Tony Herrington on DJ Spinn

Tony Herrington on DJ Spinn's new Teklife Vol 2: What You Need

"On "Over There (Getting It)" dance circle exhortations are clipped and looped into lines of richocheting sibilants and consonants - rather than denuding these inner city voices of personality , this has the opposite effect, amplifying their humanity by exposing their lack of agency."


"To get all philosophical on it, Footwork's use of sampling embodies the latest technologised iteration of a vernacular form of semiotics in which black music articulates then subverts the mendacity of western language systems which are insufficient to express true lived experience."
