Review: Having worked with the super respected label likes of Dreamers, Flexout and Inperspective, Italian beat meddler now sprays his sonics all over Rua's ever expanding canvas. The results speak for themselves; "Eternal Sunset" is a fractured bliss with all the warmth and feels you'd expect from a man based just outside of Rome. "Wild Obsession VIP" sees Lynch taking his 2016 collaboration with Block Mameli and giving it a vibrant, not to mention gully, new update (watch out for the strange beat switch on the vocal) "Echosystem" pays homage to traditional dubcraft while grand finale "Deadly" closes with a scorching dancehall sampling slap-about. Four pearls of absolute truth; this is one of Lynch's best EPs to date.
Review: Rua Sound have seemingly landed a gem of as EP here as they invite Sun People in to deliver a four track EP, drawing inspiration from across the full breadth of electronic dance music. We begin with the smooth jungle drum influences and colourful synths of 'Give It Up'. We then land into a more tribal-sound arrangement as 'Tackle It' combines high energy percussive rolls and scattered melodies to bring a dash of energy to the dance, before the title track 'These Days' rolls out more heavyweight sub tones and high-ended jungle breaks. We finish up with the clicky drum chomps and stunning soundscaping of 'Black Sphere', adding a nice contrast to see out the tracklisitng.
Review: Not to generalise or anything, but Touchy Subject is an absolute badman! With an extensive smorgasbord discog going back a few years now on labels as disparate as Astrophonica and Twizted Movements, here we find him returning to Rua with four more beguiling system-shaking hybrids. 'The General' is proper sci-fi dance hall with the flabbiest of basslines you'll see this side of the pastie factory. It's followed by the purring rootsical rolling dub workout "Seek & Find", an ultra sinewy and venomous "Shudder" and, finally, the head-scratchingly beautiful shuffles of and skitters of "Turnt Up". Unique.
