Ben Gomori's newly inaugurated Monologues serves up its sixth release with Bristol's Lrusse. It's a mixed bag on here but it's all good, we assure you. Sublime and dreamy deep house in the vein of Kompakt or Moodmusic with just enough power for the dancefloor on "Ynyslas" but you can tell he's from Bristol on "Cut Through" and "Plus Ones" that have Bristol all over it on these dark and dirty bass driven workouts that are way more street level and will appeal to fans of homeboys Pinch and Kowton et al.
Given their combined track records, you'd expect this EP of collaborations between Bristol residents Lukas (AKA Eats Everything collaborator and Futureboogie Recordings regular Luke Turner) and LRusse (AKA Ed Behling of Behling & Simpson fame) to be pretty tasty. Pleasingly, it is, and it's also delightfully varied to boot. You can variously expect jazz-flecked, bass-heavy breakbeat house ("Upstairs Downstairs"), US garage-influenced groovery ("Squash"), bongo-laden piano house goodness (the rush-inducing "Lock Up") and undulating electronic madness (the 808-heavy wildness of the heavily electronic "Box Jam"). Four cuts, four distinctive chunks of floor-friendly goodness. What's not to like?
