Teklife is an underground music collective formed in Chicago by
DJ Rashad centered around the subculture of footwork—a genre of music and street dance that originated in Chicago during the 1980s.
The publication, Teklife, pays homage to the footwork innovators and allows footwork enthusiasts to gain deeper knowledge of the history of the genre and the direct influence of founders RP Boo and DJ Rashad on the movement today. This issue, Vol. 1, focuses on the basics and provides a mix of essential tunes for any footwork newcomer.
This publication is a mixtape zine, consisting of a used cassette tape and case to reference the sampling that is so often used in this genre. All type was set in DIN Regular and Bold for body copy, and Trigot for the titular typeface.
