Duck N' Cover Records is proud to announce the release of one of the most anticipated vinyl E.P.'s 2013 for the global Footwork world and everyone interested in the development of up to date exciting and demanding electronic music. From Eq Why, formerly known as DJ T-Why, the artist gloriously featured on Planet Mu's legendary compilation Bangs & Works Volume 2 with three among the most memorable tracks of the whole selection, including the eternal 'Orbits', comes this masterpiece called 'Enter The Why Volume 1', subtitled 'You Got It'. Written and produced in one of the epicenters of the scene, the Chicago Southside, this music comes straight from the eye of the storm. Daring, provocative, at the same time chaotic and completely static, futuristic but totally rooted and earthed in americas rich black dance music tradition, the rawness of this music is only delivered by the likes of the hardest and coldest producers currently at the top of their game, e.g. RP Boo, Traxman, or Jlin, just to name a few. Being himself a part of D'Dynamic, the group formed by RP Boo, this record bears the highest seal of quality. This is most definitely battle music in it's purest form, made for those circles where one crew fights the other. Yet there is one track that crosses over, allowing itself to be a total summer hit for 2013, the track called '808 Kick Drum'. Being stone cold footwork still, it is so universal that it is playable on so many dancefloors of varying styles, just magical. Containing a seminal super sweet vocal sample, alongside a hook that everybody in the room will immediately start to chat along, yet keeping the general rawness factor at a high level similar to the other tunes presented here, no one but Eq Why would be able to lay it down like this. This is a number one hit single! All of the other tracks have a very special power to them as well, each in a very distinctive and different style, showing the stunning diversity that Eq Why was able to claim for himself over the 12 years since he started producing beats, while always remaining true to his very signature style. 'Invasion' ponders through big band territory, 'Overdose On Marijuana' is the funkiest tune you heard since long, 'Get Down & Bang' is 100% Chicago rawness in it's purest form, 'Going Crazy' a magnificent cut up galore, and finally 'AIDS' comes with an important message. Check out one of the most exciting dance music records in recent years, and witness how Chicago once again reinvents and redefines House Music.
