RP BOO (Planet Mu // Hyperdub Records // Teklife) is considered to be the inventor of footwork music, and as well as being a DJ and producer, he is a dancer and choreographer.

Footwork is both a fast, abstract evolution of house music from Chicago, Illinois, that combines ghetto-tech’s minimalism and fast beats with big sub-bass and chopped-up samples, as well as the style of street dance that accompanies it, and both have been around for nearly two decades.

RP Boo came up in the juke scene (itself a child of Chicago house) on the Southside of Chicago as a dancer and producer in the 90s. He was a part of the legendary Chicago dance crew House-O-Matics, but decided to focus on making and playing music with the crew. He will be playing his only New Zealand show, "CHI to AKL 2: RP Boo" at Neck of the Woods on Saturday 5 March 2016 off the back of his Adelaide Festival of Arts showcase.
