Cabo Snoop is back with a new record, which is nice to see after he was in a near-fatal car crash in Angola. This one is an infectious brass-laden track, complete with dance instructions.
This track is a highlight from the new Moombahsoul III The Finale compilation presented by David Heartbreak. Moombahsoul III along with volumes I and II are available for free download at MAD DECENT’s blog. And while you’re at it, check out Heartbreak’s remixes of the Weeknd’s new mixtape, Thursday on his Soundcloud.

Juke and footwork may have only just recently gained international interest, but there’s been underground love for the sound in Paris for a minute now. “France always had love for Chicago and Detroit’s ghetto music – ghetto house, ghettotech, juke, footwork,” explains Leatherface, an artist raised in Paris who makes footwork. “It’s a mixed crowd. There’s curious types, music lovers, hipsters, and hip hop heads. But I’ve never seen a French footwork dancer.” He’s been working with Chicago producers since 2007, when he created a French chapter of the Violator Juke Squad with support from the Chi’s DJ Slugo, who ran the seminal Subterranean Playhouse imprint. Leatherface is also cofounder of the Nightmare Juke Squad and Booty Call Records.
On Sept 19th, he’ll be dropping his first juke LP called Tales Of The Jukesaw where he takes inspiration from horror movies soundtracks, Dirty South hip hop, and psychedelic rock. The track below is an exclusive stream from the album where he proves his skills by rocking a series of beat switch ups in a deep palette coupled with swirling horror samples. When delving into other styles, Leatherface uses the alias Captain Kadillac, the name he used to whip Mixpak FM around the web. (Photo of Zombie Walk Paris by Rasoloarison Live.)
