Think you know your RP Boo from your DJ Rashad? Then this is the game for you.
A new version of Heardle has been created, with a footwork spin on the popular daily music puzzle-solving game. Made by Twitter user @FootworkMonitor and Sophie Morrison, Footwork Heardle follows the same format as Heardle, playing a short intro clip from the track for users to identify. Each day brings a new footwork tune to ID.

The genre, which grew out of ghetto-house in Chicago in the 90s, has evolved over the past couple of decades to become a worldwide phenomenon. In the UK, Addison Groove, Planet Mu’s Mike Paradinas and Hyperdub founder Kode9 were influential in the growth of footwork’s popularity outside of America.
