A short film on the music genre and dance style footwork is being projected onto Chicago's Merchandise Mart, a huge Art Deco building home to shops, offices and showrooms, through to early September.
The projections are taking place as part of the city's Year Of Chicago Music project, which sees the Department Of Cultural And Special Events link up with Art On TheMart, a public art initiative. Three films are being projected onto the building for the project, and the first of those is 'Footnotes', an animation on footwork.
A memorial party for the late footwork pioneer, DJ Rashad, who passed away in 2014 aged 34, will take place later this year.
The party will take place at the Jazz Cafe on the 1st May, with fellow Chicago footwork pioneer and Teklife co-founder, DJ Spinn, heading to London for the event.
Hyperdub label boss Kode9 will also perform at the event, alongside London-based DJ and purveyor of footwork and jungle, Sherelle.
Teklife has marked the beginning of a new year with the release of a new compilation titled 'TEKLIFE VIP 2020'.
It follows on a year from 'TEKLIFE VIP 2019' and much like its predecessor, takes in a number of previously unreleased tracks from key Teklife label artists and affiliates.
Hyperdub will celebrate their 15th birthday with a party at London's Village Underground later this month.
Featuring a number of core members from the label's roster, the party will see Kode9 playing b2b with a special guest who will remain unannounced until the party. The label has hinted that the guest is a "South London legend" and old friend of the label, and added that the b2b will mark the first time the two have played together in the UK.
Teklife co-founder DJ Spinn will release 'Da Life' on the 18th October via London underground unit, Hyperdub.
Featuring Teklife affiliate DJ Manny on track 'Sky Way', and vocal contributions from DJ Spinn himself on 'Knock A Patch Out' and 'U Ain't Really Bout Dat Life', the DJ and producer weaves 160 magic with four tracks of high-energy, club-ready footwork.
DJ Rashad, one of the pioneers of footwork, died at the weekend in his home city of Chicago. He was 34.
