“I’m Tryna Tell Ya” – Beat This feat DJ Earl

“I’m Tryna Tell Ya” – Beat This feat DJ Earl by Tim & Barry

Purple TV presents an exclusive clip from “I’m Tryna Tell Ya” a documentary from Tim & Barry. In spring 2012 an entourage from DWT went to Chicago to document the Footwork Scene. A scene ingrained in the lineage of the City itself, filled with effervescent dancers, storytellers and beat makers. The documentary features key players on the scene, such as DJ Rashad, DJ Spinn, Manny, Traxman and Arpebu.

The Tim & Barry team navigated through the South and West sides of the windy City living with the GHETTOTEKNITIANZ or as they fondly refer to them self members of Teklife. They slept on floors, sofas and in dodgy motels with their charming hosts, all the while managing to obtain un-seen footage from the finest Producers, Footworkers and the good people of Chi-Town. “It’s taken our humble team a long and painstaking while to put this together. We hope to do the people who shared their homes, talent and ultimately their lives with us, proud.” – Tim & Barry
