Fouk's roots date back to an early friendship during high school when Daniel Leseman and Hans Peeman started collecting vinyl. Leseman started producing, both under his real name and as 3 Colours, whilst Hans Peeman began building a reputation as Junktion. Coming together as Fouk, their debut vinyl dropped on their Outplay imprint and was followed up by outings on Heist and Room With A View. Now, the Dutchmen's appearance on House of Disco sees them join a roster spanning Francis Inferno Orchestra, Psychemagik, Late Nite Tuff Guy, Monitor 66 and Finnebassen.
'Gruff' consists of infectious guitar licks, heady synth melodies and a walking bassline that collaborate to form a funk-fuelled production. 'Freebooter' then delivers deep chords and subtle strings in a jaunty cut geared for peak time revelry, before 'Orchard' combines gentle piano keys with a strumming guitar and poignant pads in a groovy, low-slung number.
Ron Basejam steps up for the first remix of 'Gruff', stretching the original out across 8 minutes with a focus on intricate percussion and newly introduced vocal coos, until Snacks concludes the package with a lively rendition which heightening tension erupts into a charismatic crescendo.
