'da trak genious' is planet mu's compilation of the footwork tracks of dj nate, born nathan clark, a 20 year old artist who grew up in the westside of chicago. he started making footwork tracks 5 years ago, more recently turning his hand to hip hop and r'n'b, and the album is an archive compilation of his productions. this is nate's first ever worldwide album release. it's essentially a selection of tracks that have come out on small edition cdrs and tracks posted on youtube and imeem. this is how planet mu first heard his music, which has gathered a small but enthusiastic band of followers and fans who have been itching to hear more from nate and know more about the genre. dj nate uses the basic palette of samples from pop and hip hop, pitched, layered and triggered into unusual edits, often edging into distortion, usually with a simple repeated phrase like 'hatas our motivation' used to pump up the dancers. this hypnotizing effect, combined with sparse 808 drum patterns, often with busy fills, relentless triplets and off-kilter accents, is used to create very different variations within his sound.
