#UOAI [IJ002]

by BSN Posse



The second official Iberian Juke release comes from the local duo BSN Posse, main reference for footwork sounds in Spain. After their debut album “Forever” last year for Slime Recordings, one of the best electronic albums of the year, and with several EPs on their back for labels like Modern Ruin (UK) or Freshmoon (USA), the duo from Málaga is making use this time of their more sentimental side, linking the original footwork roots with their characteristic and personal touch.
The 6 tracks that compose #UOAI have a special significance for them, with influences from the 90’s electronic music (“I Love Your Smile”, “Chicago”), to modern jazz (“Don’t Leave Me Girl”), hip hop or R&B (“I Can Feel Your Energy”) and even flamenco (“Te Camelo”), genre that is an important part of their culture and as they say, “has a strong relationship with footwork music because of its intrinsic pattern and the dance focusing on the feet movement”.
We can highlight the track “#UOAI” in collaboration with Stayhigh that gives name to the EP and, as they explain, “it’s a feeling, a lifestyle, a state of mind. It emerged from the good feeling, the magic of the night and the special Company of our brothers Chelis and Woodhands, thanks to the track "Brighter Dayz" produced by DJ Rashad and DJ Spinn, who sampled the vocals of the anthem "Brighter Days" by Cajmere”. A small tribute to the big driver of this genre DJ Rashad, who unfortunately passed away almost two years ago.
#UOAI is a clear declaration of intentions: footwork is not a passing fad. “It’s a genre that will persist because of its importance and relevance for many people around the world”, as it happened with them. “The culture that exists around this music is what it has allowed its growth and thanks to this we can enjoy a small part of Chicago in every corner of the world”.

La segunda referencia del sello Iberian Juke llega de la mano de los referentes del footwork patrio BSN Posse. Tras firmar su debut en formato largo con uno de los mejores discos del 2015 (“Forever”, Slime Recordings), y con varios EPs a sus espaldas en sellos como Modern Ruin (UK) o Freshmoon (USA), el dúo malagueño ha querido sacar en esta ocasión su lado más sentimental, uniendo las raíces del género con su característico toque personal.
Los 6 tracks que componen #UOAI tienen un significado especial para ellos, con influencia de la electrónica de los '90 (“I Love Your Smile”, “Chicago”), el modern jazz (“Don’t Leave Me Girl”), hip hop o R&B (“I Can Feel Your Energy”) hasta flamenco (“Te Camelo”), género que forma parte importante de su cultura y que según ellos mismo comentan, “tiene una estrecha relación con la música footwork por sus patrones entresillados y el baile centrado en los pies”.
Destacamos el corte #UOAI en colaboración con Stayhigh que da nombre al EP y que según explican “se trata de un sentimiento, una filosofía de vida, un estado de ánimo. Surgió de la buena vibra, la magia de la noche y la especial compañía de nuestros primos Chelis y Woodhands, gracias al track "Brighter Dayz" producido por DJ Rashad y DJ Spinn, los cuales samplearon la vocal del mítico "Brighter Days" de Cajmere”. Un pequeño homenaje al gran impulsor de este género DJ Rashad, que por desgracia nos dejó hace casi 2 años.
#UOAI es una clara declaración de intenciones: el footwork no es algo temporal, no se trata de una moda pasajera. “Es una música que perdurará por la importancia que ha adquirido para mucha gente alrededor del mundo”, como lo ha hecho en los artistas malagueños. “La cultura que existe alrededor de esta música es lo que ha permitido su crecimiento y gracias a eso podemos disfrutar de una parte de Chicaco en cada rincón del mundo”.
