At the rate DJ Earl‘s going, he’s going to be the name on footwork for 2014. He’s already remixed Rx’s “Strike Ah Pose” and put out an impressive album with Heavee D. He’s got a pair of remixes on Graeme S’ forthcoming single, and seems to have no plans of stopping. One cut that actually dropped in December was recently given away via Mixmag; the amen break-laden “Break” highlights the constant jungle influence in the footwork scene, where that 160BPM realm leads you everywhere, from hyper-edited breakbeat workout to those thumping kicks. This dropped on Coral Records’ Seapunk Vol. 2, and is a gem. Below that is a track, “Gotcha Open,” which Earl actually gave away on Valentine’s Day. If you missed the free download… oops. We’ve been trying to tell you to keep your eyes on dude.
