Layo & Bushwacka are returning to Chicago for the first time in several years. This time, the UK duo is out in support of their new “Feels Closer” LP, which contains a collaboration with Chicago’s own Green Velvet. The success of their last two LPs “Nightworks” brought them to the forefront of the UK’s dance culture; the single “Love Story” even brought chart success. The two cut an impeccably clean sound best described as a combination of tech-house and UK breakbeat (perhaps like a more subtle Chemical Brothers). They’re no pair of slouches behind the turntables either, having cut their teeth in the London underground for well over a decade. (Jarrett Spiegel)
