Oldtime British IDM label Planet Mu is all over Chicago's juke/footwork scene, signing DJ Nate and DJ Roc. Now it's released Women's Studies, Chrissy Murderbot's unique tribute to the hyperactive, deceptively simple genre. A walking encyclopedia of rave and its offshoots, Murderbot shows off his knowledge in a constantly expanding treasure trove of mixes from Latin freestyle to early jungle to just about anything else you could name at his "Year of Mix Tapes" blog. Machinedrum put together MC Theophilus London's This Charming Mixtape; he's also half of NYC's own Sepalcure. With Contakt (Turrbotax).
