about

"Another footwork masterpiece from the heart of the genre: Following his iconic 2010 debut on Planet Mu and a couple of releases for Shinkaron and Beatdown House in 2014, Chicago’s DJ Roc returns with an addictive mini album for Swiss label Duck N’ Cover. A resident DJ at the weekly footwork battles at South Side’s Battlegroundz, he’s been an active member of the scene long enough to perfectly capture their spirit. On Practice What U Preach, it’s the samples that are battling. DJ Roc imposes a cutting edge on Jhene Aiko’s mega R’n’B hit ‘The Worst’. He executes dramatic hymns in the form of trembling dracula organs (‘Destruction’) and frees brass-imitating loops from pitch and tempo restrictions (‘Ready Or Not’). Contrasting a mellow saxophone theme with the characteristic stroboscopic drum work (‘Lowend Unity’), he conjures up jazz imagery, while ‘Got No Crack’ bridges the release with its ghetto house roots. Absolutely wild." Bleep, bleep.com/release/61209-dj-roc-practice-what-u-preach

"Chicago's own DJ Roc volleys an electrified 2nd album of footwork with 'Practice What U Preach' for scene supporters, Duck N' Cover. Working a perfect balance of sampled soul and technoid Afro-futurism, it weighs up some of his deadliest cuts and jabs in the likes of 'Lowend Unity', named after his 'hood and flush with a mix of pealing sax, droning subs and mercurial synth drops; with the lump-in-throat brilliance of his hyper Jhene Aiko flip, 'The Worst'; and not least the staccato pulses, ricochet rimshots and choking bass pressure of 'I Make Gutta'."
