Those lamenting a lack of ideas on the scene today need to clock Double Cup and fast. At its heart it may be a footwork LP - often one of the more basic of beat movements - but genre figurehead Rashad keeps it all so fresh, pulling off the most difficult of tricks in the process. As he drops Bass, house, techno, classic West Coast hip-hop, trap rips, cut-and-paste R&B, jungle pulses and D&B grooves into the mix so too is he exiting a niche, becoming accessible without diluting the intent. Awesome.

EDIT April 26, 2014: RIP Rashad. Too soon.

Footwork is supposedly dance music. And it possibly is, for elite level dancers. With each successive evolution in footwork's past, the levels of funk/booginess seems to have dropped. Compare the ghetto house of DJ Funk and DJ Deeon with the modern footwork of Dj Rashad, RP Boo or Traxman, and you can clearly hear the progression from dancefloor oriented 4/4 jackfests to abstract, angular, chopped-up vignettes.

I feel Double Cup is more successful than the recent RP Boo and Traxman albums because it expands more upon the footwork sound. It retains the jittery hi-hats and spasmodic kicks common to the genre but smooths things out a bit. The BPMs may still be high but it gives out a more chilled R&B/hip hop vibe at times, sometimes despite the rhythms there is even a deep house sound coming across. Instead of the churning out dozens a songs a week mentality that these producers seem to use, this feels like Rashad has put some more time into each track, sanding out the rough edges as much as possible whilst retaining that raw junglesque production quality. This is especially evident on the samples which feel more integrated than the copy-and-paste stuff you can get. I do love the classic techno sound on Reggie and the 303 workout on Acid Bit, and that kind of organ sound (my ears aren't good enough to describe it properly) on a lot of the tracks really acts as a lynchpin under the drum machine meltdowns.

As far as LP's go, I do probably prefer the 'outsider' take on the footwork sound from the likes of Machinedrum, Kuedo, Lil Jabba and Slava, and in general I prefer the older juke and ghetto house stuff in mixes, but this album has plenty going for it.
