With previous releases on SCI+TEC and Turbo Recordings, the past few years have played a pivotal role in securing success and longevity for SHADED aka Skyler Taugher, and this venture with RUKUS marks a new undertaking for the California-born producer. The four-tracker stomper features two originals, with remixes from Vatos Locos boss Hector, and rising talent Russell.
?Below Low? delivers a master-class in stripped back, minimal groove; punctuated by pitched down vocal hooks. Wild synth passes and intertwining lead lines mingle with the signature electro funk bass lines SHADED is renowned for.
A progressive acid style, balanced with precise elemental placement, is at the core of ?This Function?. Perfectly pitched vocals, crisp percussion and tight mixing highlight his commitment to his craft as a musician.
Hector?s impeccable rework of ?Below Low?offers a change of pace into deep, subby grooves, rolling percussion and flashes of retro ?space-echo? hits, bending the original in his true distinguished flair.
Russell makes his musical debut on RUKUS with his remix of ?This Function?. With granularized vocals as the backdrop, this is a journey of strings, distant arpeggiators and rhythmic chords, all held together by a driving bass line.?
Below Low? brings a new sound to the label, and SHADED is an exciting, and welcome addition to the RUKUS family
