Calosso is a born and bred New Yorker who brings all the musical vitality of that city to his music. It has come on Tuskegee, Whippin, Hot Creations and Cuttin’ Headz, and made him one of the most interesting names in the game in recent years. London’s Bas Ibellini is a fellow tech titan with credits on Tuskagee who also founded his own Peculiar party, while featuring on both originals is Sheff. A man of great aesthetics, merging philosophies and concepts together, he is a modern day ‘Egyptian lover meets P-Diddy’ with a Greek feta twist who puts the ‘P’ in Positive.
Ride The Rhythm is a quick and slick house track with stripped back but bouncing drums, infectious percussion and a bassline that never lets up. The results are perfectly hypnotic as subtle percussion and deep, husky male vocals add to the atmosphere. Remixer Ben Rau is a man who knows how to lay down a solid groove from running his own Inkal label and its sister Meta. Here he ups the ante, with warm, loopy drums and one of his signature bouncy basslines barrelling along and taking you with it for the ride.
Last original Make You is more clipped and punchy, with perfectly swung drums getting you in the groove and as the low slung bass line plunges deep. More trippy synths, effects and muttered vocals add colour to the track, which is sure to get big reactions every time.
This is another fresh and contemporary house EP from some of the best in the game right now.
