RP Boo shares “Back From The Future” from his first LP of new material

The Footwork veteran will release I'll Tell You What! on Planet Mu on 6 July

Chicagoan footwork producer RP Boo is set to release his first full length of contemporary material in June. A veteran on the scene, historically much of his production had come in the form of white labels and self-released mixtapes, until two archival releases on Planet Mu – Legacy in 2013 and Fingers, Bank Pads & Shoe Prints in 2015 – bought his work to the ears of an international audience.

The new release, he says, has him share new stories with the listener, and his experience of leaving Chicago to tour internationally some five years ago.

I'll Tell You What! is released by Planet Mu on 6 July. You can listen to an edit of the lead track "Back From The Future" below:
