As I’ve said time and time again, Teklife is the most important thing coming out of Chicago right now. They’re an innovative crew comprised of talented Djs and producers that have developed their own sound and is recognized instantly when played. They’re truly authentic. It’s easy to make really fast music sound abrasive and obnoxious and with tempos that don’t usually fall below 160, it’s remarkable how this team makes songs that groove this hard. ‘Old English’ came out in June of this year with high regard obviously since it has 3 of the heaviest hitters in 2015 on it. The song stuck around for maybe like a month and then got drowned out by all the other “hot” releases of the summer and that seemingly was that. The song was good, not amazing, but it was cool to put on at parties and hearing Young Thug and Freddie Gibbs together is theoretically a dream collaboration. Teklife however, made this song incredible. With the traditional footwork groove coming in at about 30 seconds, hearing Thug and Gibbs rap over footwork is beautiful and hopefully this sound can come together as more than remixes someday.
