ill-esha just fired out a Kraddy remix today that moved some gears in our head, adding some spice to Kraddy’s “Ill Million” and altering our perception of glitch-hop. We got some lulz from the “Footfunk” tag on Soundcloud. It sounds like what a twelve-hour rave does to the inside of Moon Boots, but the foot prefix (short for footwork, we think) more importantly made us think about the future of glitch-hop as footwork/juke and trap music are definitely trending.
We’re pretty damn confident you enjoyed our recent Flosstradamus post, where you may have been introduced to the great potential of techno trap. Juke/footwork music is like trap’s younger brother in a lot of ways — both are black subcultures that can easily begin to replace the hip-hop element in glitch-hop.
Kraddy :: Ill Million
Kraddy was one of our first gateways into glitch-hop back in his Glitch Mob days, so it makes sense that his original “Ill Million” would give ill-esha the canvas needed to push it into a new era of influence. If you enjoyed our post on our Portland juke friends STYLSS from a few months ago, you are definitely going to enjoy this ill-esha remix. There’s plenty of energy, but not enough to overcome what makes glitch-hop fun for the chill-minded.
