Given that their discography consists of a couple of contributions to compilation-style EPs, you'd be forgiven for being unfamiliar with the work of Rubents. This debut EP for Ondule Recordings should finally put them on the map, though. We found opener "The More I Get", a jacking and energy-packed stomper built around short, sharp electric piano riffs and a relentless bassline, to be particularly arresting (not to mention weighty), though the dreamy Joss Moog edit of electrofunk-inspired deep house roller "Heat Up" (so-called because it re-purposes the bassline from an old Shirley Lites jam) is almost as good. Intriguingly, the EP's other two tunes doff a cap to the high-octane thrills of Chicago juke whilst also utilizing a fine ranged of chopped and screwed vocal samples.
