Hey, you, what’s that sound!? This is the sound of our 2nd weekly Skrufix spotify selection, Skrulection 2, that is what that sound is and it is sick as!
Yosa starts things off, with a return to releasing duties on the always impressive Berlin label, Dirt Crew Recordings. A quality outing it is too, with the signature Deep House grooves coupled with an intriguing rhythmical bit of vocal. Loving this track!
Crazylegs has a record label! No, not the infamous flexible B-Boy and Rock steady Crew Member, but the now well established Bristol club night. What a way to kick things of as well (excuse the pun), with a hugely hyped release from the emerging Techno talent of Ziro!
From new talent to old and one who just won’t let up! Funk grooves one week, glitchy IDM the next and now what he does best, epic smooth funky electro, it is DMX Krew! Forever the master of all styles, for what seems to be a mission to clock up the most releases in a year, his quality never falters and this release on the new London label Wavey Tones is an absolute beaut!!
Electro here, electro there, Electro is a word that sometimes gets banged around all over the place, relating to anything that has a 4/4 beat, makes you dance and produced via electronic means. This is not the case with this release from Dynamik Bass System on the marvelous Munich label! Robotmachine Records is pure Electro monster at it’s best and we love it!! Enough said…….
Following a fine debut release for the Berlin Vae Victis label, coming from the now prolific Blawan, they keep the good grooves rolling with this debut from Italian Techno duo Die Roh!
Nice coming together of two production heavyweights Hudson Mowhawke and Lunice, with their release as TNGHT on Warp. Ossie, the man who brought us the unforgettable and sublime Tarantula release last year, follows up with something a bit deeper and Housie for the 2020 Visions label, before we hear the haunting, jazzy dubstep sounds of Jack Sparrow on the Deep Medi label, for what is a very beautiful track after a few listens.
The legendary Legowelt remixes the talents of Chicago’s Chrissy Murderbot, taking the jackin original to something more groove and electro focused! Then the Keysound label deliver more compelling 2-step, dubstep from founders Dusk & Blackdown, with a special guest appearance on the title track as well!
Some wonky, twisty, dirty garage vibes from Bristol and fledgling producer Riffs is our penultimate choice of the week, before the sublime and depressingly young Rustie plays us out with another revamp of a track from what was one of the albums of the year last year, Glass Swords. Wasn’t so sure about the Surph release with Nightwave, but this slightly less tranced out and subtle version of After Light, featuring Aluna George, is a definite winner!
