RP Boo – a.k.a. Kavain Space – is cited as one of the originators of Footwork, the fast, repetitive, rhythmically syncopated music, born direct from the ‘footwork’ dance style and the ashes of the late 80’s/early 90’s Chicago house scene.
Rising to prominence in 2010 with the release of the Bangs & Works compilation on Planet Mu, the Chicago-based artist has been on the forefront of the footwork sound since its inception, with early singles like “Baby Come On” in 1997 turning into regional hits way before the genre become widely known. Inspiring countless producers like DJ Spinn, the late DJ Rashad and more recent experimentalists such as Jlin, RP Boo’s signature sound is rooted in footwork’s most vital principles while pushing continually into unknown territory.
We are delighted to welcome RP Boo to Scotland for the first time for a DJ set, as well as a trio performance with Seymour Wright and Paul Abbott.
