Chicago-based RP Boo aka Kavain Space is one of the main players in the Chicago genre of footwork. RP Boo's unique style is based on complex, syncopated beats. His high-speed interlocking polyrhythms thrill the crowd and laid the foundation for what later became known as Footwork.


How is the overall vibe in your city?

At this moment to vibe is kind of on the edge dealing with all the snow we have been getting over the last 4 days, its very hard for travels and parking, just Chicago will in time share its uplifting vibes with its city goers.

Can you elaborate a bit on the mood you’ve been in, while recording your set?

Always awesome especially knowing its being done for an amazing festival that I will aways remember as well to looking forward to participating at again.

How do you feel about the overwhelming presence of digital / social media in comparison to the lack of social time IRL?

Really I don't like it, it takes away and kind of isolate just people have to adapt and grow into the future, just don't feel like you need to be forced-Yes its Apart of what life is about not being afraid of the unknown future.

Does this at some point influence your musical production? The lack of the crowd? How?

Well for me I have so much still that have not came into play with my production, I'm just A living old soul that still display what most would never understand, the lack of crowds are missed yes, I can always take in memories of them and apply at any moment with music... And I do say this from standing on the side, lack of crows in attendance does effect A lot of producers that was born after the late 80's and its not enough soul representing the artist due to how in the 80's mostly everything in production became electronic based that clearly eliminating pure inside soul from humans to adapt into robots.

The Elevate Festival 2021 theme is Momentum. Which social or political cause would deserve more Momentum?

Social momentum (Human Beings) with none decaying structure for the fact of festival & party goers can really embrace what life is to really be like with all cultures of people loving with enjoyment understanding we are all one that is born with love and lets show what it really looks like to pass on down to the generation to come.
