DJ Nate - Take Off Mode (LP)

Ships In 7-9 Business Days
Planet Mu welcomes back DJ Nate, a full nine years after his debut album. DJ Nate is from the West Side of Chicago and was the label's first ever footwork signing back in 2010. His strange, sample-heavy sound was the acid test to introduce footwork to a wider audience, outside Chicago and certain aficianados, and it created the opportunity for Planet Mu to release the two "Bangs & Works" compilations and introduce the world to such artists as DJ Rashad, Jlin and Traxman. Since "Da Trak Genious" was released, DJ Nate has released R&B and Hip Hop with a strong local following. The highlight of this part of his career was "Gucci Goggles", an underground hit outside Chicago. His rise was slowed after he was paralysed from the neck down two years ago, an accident which he's recently recovered from. This selection of tracks feels like they're in direct continuity with his debut, with his trademark yearning vocal samples, cutting them into strange new pitched up and down musical motifs.

Delays in supply chain, shorter fulfillment schedules, as well as extended processing from USPS have forced these delays for the time being. Thank you for your patience and business as we navigate these difficult times!

Order processing time is separate from shipping time requested.
