Cornelius Ferguson a.k.a. Traxman is one of the longest serving producers working in House and Footwork, with releases stretching back to the glory days of Ghetto House on Dance Mania records in the nineties. He's also one of the co-founders of Chicago's G.E.T.O DJZ INC clique, a member of DJ Rashad & DJ Spinn's Teklife CREW and founder of the TEKK DJZ crew. His unique brand of Footwork is very strongly rooted in Chicago's history of Soul, Funk, House and Ghetto Trax; he's a veteran and renowned crate digger who has provided the sample sources for many of House, Juke and Footwork's classic tracks over the years. His deep knowledge of music (check the mixes he occasionally throws up on the net) makes him one of the city’s most versatile and skilled DJs and producers.
Traxman's own productions are an incredibly well rounded suture between Hip Hop's natural funk and resourceful sample flipping, the hyper-kinetic innovation of Footwork's stop-start, half-time to double-speed drum programming and a deep respect and understanding of Chicago's House past, that few producers can match. His mixes are a testament to this man's skills.
