Last night Bok Bok and P.O.L. Style played this tribute set to DJ Rashad on their show on Rinse FM.

“It was tough to do this, but playing any other music just didn’t feel right. You built a bridge from Chicago to the rest of the world. Playing this set reminded us yet again; every track shone with brilliance, bubbled with your unique charisma, even the darker ones. Your warmth and generosity will live on forever in your work. We still can’t comprehend the loss. Rest in Peace our brother Rashad.”

The weekend is about to start and we’re easing into it with guidance from London producer/dj and Night Slugs co-founder Bok Bok and his recent flawless mix of bassfilled and “new skool club music” tracks done for Resident Advisor.

“The tracks in here all come from different places, and I try to bring them together and make them sound like they’re all coming from the same place. In this mix, drums rule. It doesn’t vary in tempo as much as I have at other times, so it’s really about this steady, endless momentum from the percussion. I was thinking a lot about the parameters of our Club Constructions series, which I’ll be talking about more in the coming months, but the key is to keep things stripped down. There’s also a heavy slant towards what I’ve been thinking about in my head as “new skool club music,” an idea informed by Jersey club and ballroom music and all the forthcoming Night Slugs material that’s in this mix from artists like Helix, Deamonds and Neana.”
