I hate to sound ignorant, but can someone please explain to me the meaning of the style Juke?

Addison Groove played a Wednesday party called Boomba with the Gritsy crew in Houston, summer 2010. I remember there was a dude in the parking lot selling "Footcrabs", crabs that you strapped onto your feet. Like, did that dude save those things for that specific occasion?!?!?! How random....Footcrab is a classic tune. Dumbshit is a sick tune as well. THAT BASS!!!

In interviews Tony is very clear in saying that after being exposed to Juke / Footwork he set out in making these tunes as "dubstep tunes in a juke template."

You could call this divisive track--popular in certain DJ circles, reviled by others for its simplicity and repetitiveness. I'm talking about the A-side, of course--"Dumbshit," although arguably just as strong a track, never quite got the attention. "Footcrab" is hyperkinetic stuff, like it or not, and damned simple on the surface, a two-syllable vocal sample bounced over a formula 3+3+2 beat. Addison conjures the sound of Juke/Footwork, a U.S. house-based dance sound. But where that scene pushes the samples and appropriations to the front, raw and sharp, this single's sound is a bit more polished: below the hooky surface there's fine-tuned pacing and expert production. Addison Groove is no newcomer to the UK scene--he's worked under the Headhunter moniker in years past--and given a close listen his skill becomes clear.
