Chicagoist Weekend Theatre: Pitchfork's DJ Rashad/DJ Spinn Documentary

By Jon Graef in Arts & Entertainment on Jun 8, 2014 7:00PM

Earlier this week, Pitchfork premiered a 20-minute documentary following Teklife's DJ Rashad [who passed away earlier this year] and DJ Spinn around Monterrey, Mexico while on tour.

The film is a fly-on-the-wall look at Rashad and Spinn taking in the local sights and talking music with local DJs. The documentary is beautifully shot in stark black-and-white, and there's plenty of terrific music in it. Take a break from "Orange Is The New Black," and watch some Chicago masters at work, courtesy of Pitchfork.

Check out another documentary about footwork, the subgenre of dance music Rashad and Spinn help pioneer, here.
