Chicago juke legend DJ Manny puts out ‘Stand That’ EP on Dynasty Shit, plus, there’s a dope jungle footwork remix on there by 5ifty$ix K !
About a month or so ago, Manny hit me up and had some tracks to show me. I liked them, and we agreed to put an EP out on Dynasty Shit. I especially really liked one of them, ‘Shake That,’ and decided I wanted to put a remix of it on the album. So, here is ‘Stand That,’ EP by DJ Manny, who has been a legend for years in the footwork and Chicago juke music world.
It’s pretty fucking exciting to me to have someone who has helped hold down the Teklife name for so long (and hold it down WELL) put something out on Dynasty Shit (the footwork / jungle record label ran by the same douche who runs this site….ME!)
This 5-track has some real gems on it, too. If you’re into the 160 (which I’m assuming you might be if you’re reading this post) you’re going to want to check out this new one.
Yes, the Bassadelic mixtape series returns! And this one is a really fun mixtape, to be certain!
I’ve been talking with Kid Lib lately (and get ready for an interview with this INSANELY prolific jungle/juke dude!) and he was kind enough to drop a mixtape on us, here at Bassadelic. It’s the Smokin Trees Mixtape. I know 4/20 was a few days ago, but this mix transcends any smoker’s holiday, so I didn’t feel the need to post it only for that occasion. I’ve listened to this one at least ten times. It’s a high impact footwork jungle gem-of-a-jam of a mixtape, and I’m extremely excited to post it here.
I’m also trying to get Kid Lib in on the new Dynasty Shit, for a track on the new compilation. It’s a jungle juke label started by StrangeFlow / Bassadelic, specializing in jukey/footwork mixed with jungle/dnb sounds. I’m very excited about that. And I’m hoping I can convince the Kid Lib to join up for at least one or two grooves, because his stuff is really something. But, we’ll have to see.
Anyway, without further ado, he was kind enough and awesome enough to drop this special tape on us, and I have to share it!! Click the image above, or click here.
So, I’ll get to the mixes in a second—but first, here’s the scippety-scoop: I was getting ready to do a ‘Top Ten Juke Songs,’ and then decided, ‘OK, how about a top ten for the LAST SIX MONTHS…,’ and then, in the process of discovering some new juke, I was tipped off by Keri Bellybelle about DJ Spinn’s new release, ‘TEKLIFE Vol. 2,’ which I proceeded to listen to – and it is REALLY good! I recommend checking this one out! Its got some dope material from DJ Spinn, DJ Rashad, & DJ Manny.
….and what good would this fucking site be if I only told you about it but didn’t provide you with a LINK!!!! <–!!!!
Here’s one of the trax, She Turnt Up, from the album:
OK, so what else is there from DJ Spinn, beyond this awesome new release? Well, seeing as he is a DJ, he has lots of mixes to listen to, and here are a few of them from the last couple of years..

That last one is pretty interesting, too; a long mix + a great interview with DJ Spinn. Very fun! Hope you enjoy these great mixes from one of Chicago’s dopest juke DJs!
I’ll be posting a lot more juke in the next few weeks, definitely. But for now, have fun with these DJ Spinn trax!! They should keep ya goin for a bit!
If you’re a juke producer, or want to put some juke flavor into your tunes, consider the juke samples pack by StrangeFlow, on the graphic link just below.. One hundred and fifty beats, and lots of greats melodies and other goodies, and it’s on sale for sixteen bucks! Check it out :) (there’s also a free demo pack with a few of the sounds, to give you an idea of what’s in it, as well as a demo track I made.)
