So sad that we are already seeing posthumous releases from DJ Rashad’s archives, rather than new releases from an active and alive Rashad, but at least the proceeds from the 6613 EP are going to his family. Four high energy footwork rollers, well worthy of the name (and featuring the likes of DJ Spinn and Taso), on Hyperdub.

8/10 Clinton Staff review, 07 July 2015
The latest in what is sure to be a long line of posthumous releases from the late footwork pioneer. Opener ‘CCP2’ might have you playing guess the sample and tying yourself in knots as much as me. I *think* it’s from some Alex Reece track or other -- certainly something that would have appeared on a 1995 ‘When Drum & Bass Went Smooth’ compilation. The sample drives the track along with some bubbling sub bass and a vocal sample which, when repeated ad nauseum, appears to suggest the word ‘turnip’ to the listener. Next up ‘Cause I know You Feel‘ is so incredibly sped up that you would think that it was at the wrong speed. He pulls the same stutter trick which he lets go on so long that it starts to become seriously disorientating.
Overleaf we get the minimal breaks of 'Ya Hot', which is a more seedy track about licking something (ice cream perhaps), but it’s probably the only track here that doesn’t feel genuinely fresh and new. Closer ‘Do Not Fuck’ is comprised of tiny splices shards of sound with yer regulation siren and unusual and deft percussion. I’m pretty sure that these records will in years to come be seen as classics.
