Press Quotes / Coverage Link(s):

Footwork, if you’ve been living under a rock in Chicago and are somehow unfamiliar, is the frenetic, hyper-repetitive, locally-born dance music that has become the city’s biggest sonic export since house music, with a global scope and staggering international profile.” - Chicago Tribune
