Charlie Boyle aka Rattraps is an Australian producer currently specialising in the juke/footwork genre, and he’ll be coming to Melbourne this Tuesday to Tastemakers at The Lounge as part of his national tour.
His music has been featured on such juke specialist web labels as Good Street, Sequel One and Drop Dem Records. He has collaborated with other juke producers like Suhp Yao and Spenda C (alias of former Australian breaks producer Kid Kenobi), and has been remixed such artists as Paces and Gully.
He’ll also be playing a fair few tracks in tribute to recently deceased footwork pioneer DJ Rashad, as is everyone else who is currently playing juke.
Able8 and 2fuddha will be supporting DJs.

I found it quite interesting he played at the Big Pineapple festival at Nambour, but I didn’t really see the relevance between footwork and big pineapples. Perhaps I’m not thinking laterally enough. If you see this one, perhaps you can ask him for me. Actually, I’m not interested.
Starts 9pm. The Lounge, 243 Swanston Street, Melbourne CBD. Free!
