Artists

DJ Paypal

DJ Paypal is one of juke and footwork’s most fascinating figures: The elusive producer, affiliated with Chicago’s Teklife-Crew, his own Mall Music collective, Glasgow underground leaders LuckyMe, and most recently, Flying Lotus’ Brainfeeder imprint, has built a family through online footwork forums, SoulSeek mining, and countless tracks shared across the globe. Ever since, he’s been spinning footwork in novel directions, highlighting the genre’s undervalued sense of playfulness in the process.

Lilium Kobayashi

Lilium Kobayashi is an artist who lives in Tokyo, and is part of the Pink Queendom collective.

Foodman

食品まつり a.k.a Foodman is an electronic music producer and visual artist based in Tokyo. His renaissance-like take on and knowledge of music is probably the most positively disconcerting trait of his work. He negotiates various song forms and combines diverse genres – ranging from techno, house, pop, raw electronic percussion to concretism, footwork, and ambient – with an incredibly creative, musical, and wild take on melody, harmony, timbre and syncopation.
