Starting with "Dance Around", we come across a deep yet very powerful tech house track which is dominated by a groovy drum arrangement, swinging shakers, carefully placed percussive elements, chord stabs and pads which give to the track a unique atmosphere.
On "Dusty" we find the producers exploring a more raw percussive jackin house territory, using shakers, various interesting timbres and textures to create a hypnotic yet groovy vibe. Blending this vibe with some nifty chordal stabs and the a side of the EP completes perfectly.
On the flip side "Soulchords" takes its turn. A solid rhythm arrangement with some effective drum patterns and a driving bass line but the highlight comes in the form of a moving chord that rips through the core of the track. Solid, precise and guaranteed to work great on a variety of dance floors.
Completing the package with style and panache, we have "Soulstrings". A melodic deep house track which is focusing on the analog bass line, the melodic chords, the chunky drum rhythm, the moody pads and the vocal samples that give the track a nice old school house music feeling.
Whatever your preference, "Ruff Elements Ep" is sure to satisfy even the most discerning ear or demanding crowd. Enjoy!
