The Quietus goes deep on Chicago footwork culture. Teklife and The Era brought down the house all week long at SXSW (including a ridiculous set at Hype Hotel) but what's it all about?
“It's possible to trace the lineage of footwork as a form of dancing back several decades to Chicago's nascent house scene. In the early 80s, dance groups like K-Phi-9, U-Phi-U, House Arrest 2 and House-O-Matics, which as their names suggest were organised like fraternities, would perform routines at parties and community events."
Thanks for listening!
