As Teklife’s youngest affiliate DJ Taye is a prodigy in more ways than one. He first joined Teklife back in 2010 when he was just 16 and has since refined his sound to become one of the most exciting young talents within the Chicago footwork genre. He’s had tracks on both the Next Life and Hyperdub 10 compilations, but now his first full release on the Hyperdub label will see the light.

Hyperdub are pleased to say this EP is invigorating from the ground up. DJ Taye possesses a distinct style that reflects the heart of footwork, thumping percussion and a crafty production method. His first full release on Hyperdub, titled Break It Down EP, is a 4 track collection featuring collaboration with footwork mainstays DJ Earl, Tripletrain, DJ Manny and DJ Paypal. It’s due to be a proper debut for Teklife’s rising talent.
