As Planet Mu call it themselves, this record is an important document. Marking the rise from isolated, outsider music, confined to Chicago’s streets and dancefloors, to gathering a growing following within an international sphere, Bangs & Works Vol. 1 is the definitive Juke collection so-far. Released on December 6th (Planet Mu), the record features luminaries from the Ghetto house scene (Traxman, DJ Roc, DJ Spin) pushing through to current producers of the subsequent Juke scene (DJ Nate, Yung Tellem, Tha Pope) that emerged from this.
