Chicago's juke music may be inextricably associated with the local footwork scene, but the jittery style's reach continues to expand ever outward, and Slick Shoota is a perfect testament to that fact. The Norwegian producer makes music that falls clearly into that framework even as he adds his own touches. To wit, his single "F Dat" showcases a unique ear for melodic context, and the uncut vocals of guest singer Purple, who laments the premature end of a relationship. "Thought we had the magic," she coos, while the corresponding Ossian Melin-directed video is full of strange voodoo — a combination of tradigital art, 3-D GIFs, vintage video-game snippets, and other Internet wildness. When we do see Purple, she's almost always within a screen within our screen. "F Dat" comes courtesy of Mad Decent's left-leaning imprint, Jeffrees.
