Remembering DJ Rashad

"DJ Rashad, aka Rashad Harden, started out as a dancer in Chicago clubs and streetcorners, and turned into a pioneering producer. He helped usher in the next wave of dance music known as footwork," Greg Kot writes for the Tribune.

"Harden, 34, of Calumet City, was found dead Saturday afternoon in an apartment on Chicago's West Side and pronounced dead shortly after. Narcotics and drug paraphernalia were found near his body, police said.

"The DJ, who was scheduled to perform Saturday in Detroit, toured last year with rising Chicago hip-hop MC Chance the Rapper, who mourned Harden's death on Twitter: 'Music lost a legend today. And he was my friend. Love you DJ Rashad. RIP.'"

Rolling Stone called Rashad "Chicago's Footworks Ambassador To The World," and rated his 2013 album Double Cup the ranked eighth best dance album of the year.

Rolling Stone also named Rashad as one of its 25 must-see acts at SXSW in March.
