RP Boo - Fingers, Bank Pads & Shoe Prints
RP Boo is to Footwork what Juan Atkins is to Techno - a source point for a busting out of innovative ideas and new directions. Sonically, RP Boo is a modern-day Zatoichi samurai, cutting his samples in unorthodox ways. His sound remains unique. 'Fingers, Bank Pads and Shoe Prints' contains both tracks made after his acclaimed 2013 debut album 'Legacy' and older tracks. Highlights include 'Banging On King Dr.' which sees him cutting up street numbers; the monolithic noir feeling of 'Sleepy'; the subtle funk of 'Your Choice' which may in some way be inspired by his Dad's role as bass player for Prince; 'Lets Dance Again' whose delicate soulful sound echoes deep streams of Chicago dance music history; the dramatic string-infused 'Daddy's Home' and the celebration of achieving dreams that is the closer 'B'Ware.' 'Fingers, Bank Pads and Shoe Prints' is the sound of an innovator reconfirming his place as leader with one of the most essential Footwork albums to date.
