Several days ago we  revealed news that footwork pioneer DJ Rashad had unveiled plans to release a new collaborative studio album this March. Entitled the ‘WTF’ LP the new full length effort from the Chicago producer will be in conjunction with fellow Teklife producers MoonDoctoR and FreshtillDef and follows on as the latest chapter in his storied career after the Teklife stalwart joined Kode9’s Hyperdub and released the awesome ‘Double Cup’ LP on the imprint last year. 

This news was then surprisingly followed by the Chi-Town producer announcing on Twitter that he was resigning from Tek-Life and as such would no longer be working with the collective. No reasons were given for the relationship being brought to a close and there didn’t seem to be any animosity regarding the decision with Rashad tagging his fellow Teklife members DJ Spinn, Manny and DJ Earl and remarking that “It’s been fun bros” before then appearing to do a sensational U-turn and announcing he has returned to Teklife after resolving any outstanding issues.

Just wanna let everybody know that I’m back in Teklife …. things worked out and we moving forward !!!!! #teklife

Grahame Farmer

Grahame Farmer’s love affair with electronic music goes back to the mid-90s when he first began to venture into the UK’s beloved rave culture, finding himself interlaced with some of the country’s most seminal club spaces. A trip to dance music’s anointed holy ground of Ibiza in 1997 then cemented his sense of purpose and laid the foundations for what was to come over the next few decades of his marriage to the music industry.
