faze’s immersive and powerfully psychoactive tracks evoke a soundclash of styles: an explosive meeting of bass-heavy genres from across both sides of the atlantic. his debut album epitomises modern dance music’s global ear while still remaining deeply connected to its local geographical roots. it mutates and reshapes his influences like sonic putty, with atlanta rap’s elemental bass ooze forming a backbone for drums that recall both jungle and grime in the way they hammer, spin and clatter through space – and in turn send dancers richocheting across the floor.
300 copies only, dj support from midland, detroit swindle, oneman, deetron...
the next release on rinse is the second in a series of three eps of gorgeous, punch-drunk house music from label regular rupert taylor, aka xxxy. the follow-up to last years acclaimed 18 hours, it is a further spiral inwards for the tripped-out, wistful style he has increasingly come to make distinctly his own, with clouds of arpeggiated synth notes and vapourised voice rolling atop pillow-soft, droning bass.
roskas fourth release for rinse – the jackpot ep – is a 3-track 12 inch. leading with the club and radio hit jackpot, the ep snakes its way through roskas current production sound — minimal, effective and built with one purpose in mind... battering the dancefloor. containing six tracks tried and tested by roska on his busy dj schedule and firm favourites on his weekly rinse fm show, this ep is not to be missed.
support from zinc, brackles, bok bok, ma1, mary anne hobbs, untold, t.williams, toddla t, redlight, annie mac, scratcha dva, pearson sound and roska himself.
after the sweat-soaked throwback fervour of his 2015 debut lp, unknown to the unknown and hot haus main man dj haus returns to rinse for a brand new 10-track album, “artificial intelligence”. working at a formidably high rate of productivity, haus returns with this new record less than 12 months after his last, and he shows no signs of slowing down, maintaining his reputation for creating hard-edged dance anthems that leave a lasting effect on the dancefloor.
mr. loser, the second release on rinse from techno-house explorer hrdvsion, further hones the sound he is become increasingly renowned for: a blisteringly taut, deceptively catchy strain of cybernetic house.
london-based producer and rinse fm associate rupert taylor, aka xxxy, has announced his second release for the rinse label, featuring a pair of characteristically melody soaked, floor ready house tracks. it is the follow up to 2013s incendiary club hit *got me so*, and is the latest in a series of releases from taylor exploring ghostly house and garage for labels including infrasonics, ten thousand yen and orca.
the *take time* ep arrives in the middle of mumdances stunning run of recent form. the title track draws upon mumdances long-standing love of grime, crafting a tightly coiled, ten-ton heavy club riddim, all frostbitten drums and shockingly stripped-back midrange, powerful enough to carve a rift deep into the mix. it features the quick-witted vocal play of rising london mc novelist, whose bars dart swift and sharp through the track’s acres of frozen space.
roskas shocking ep is the latest release from the long-running rinse producer and his firstfor the label since last years rinse presents: roska2 lp. it finds the uk innovator on his usual fiery form, drawing for his characteristic deftly swung percussion and grime-infused sub-bass pressure. the explosive title track is the most overtly grimey roskas sounded for some time, slow-building intro giving way to a pulsating bassline and caustic laser blasts.
the uk scene has changed immeasurably since hyperdub boss kode9 released hisblack sunalbum two years ago. as dubstep, grime and funky mutated, so his own tastes gradually shifted, with his dj sets increasingly drawing for thestateside sounds of trap-inspired hip-hop and footwork. his new mix cd for rinse, rinse.22, documents the point at which his personal history in grime, house and jungle collides with those new sounds. the two tracks on this new 12 inch û uh (which features on rinse:22) and ok (exclusive) - occupy that same zone between genres, finding him uncovering a thrilling point of contact between grime, broken uk house and the disorienting lurch of trap.
canadian producer/dj nathan jonson, aka hrdvsion, has been making increasing waves in the house world over the last few years with a stream of acclaimed releases for labels such as wagon repair and international deejay gigolo, and remixes for institutions like hypercolour and crosstown rebels.
his >i like the feeling you re giving me ep< for rinse encapsulates many aspects of his sound, drawing strongly both from detroit technos woozy, melody-soaked romanticism and the precision and intricacy of minimalist european house and techno. it is an intoxicating blend. its tracks are immediate and rhythmically compulsive enough to draw dancers deep into its groove, yet find jonson continually tweaking the musics depth of field to disorient the senses.
rinses next release comes from one of the freshest talents in the current grime scene, royal-t.
this month, royal-t returns to drop a four-tracker, showcasing his hyper-chromatic music which consistently pushes grimes essence in new and exciting directions. titled i know you want me, it is a mind-melting ride filled with the wonkiness of speed garage, 2-step, bassline and niche, and we predict it will explode the dancefloor.
over the past few years huxleys name has been on everyones lips in the house scene, following a string of deep house and garage-infused tracks for labels like hypercolour, tsuba and 20:20 vision. his sound is incredibly distinctive, its swung rhythms rooted in uk garage, accompanied by diced vocals and chords that hark further backward toward originators like mk and todd edwards.
dublin born and manchester based krystal klear, resident at the citys renowned hoya:hoya night and producer of some of the most compulsive modern disco and boogie of recent years, is set to release his addiction ep through rinse.
since 2009 xxxy, aka rupert taylor, has released a string of 12 inches through labels like infrasonics, well rounded and ten thousand yen that have showed off his idiosyncratic takes on uk garage and bass-driven house. his debut for rinse picks up where they left off, with three tracks of shimmering, synth-led house music, marked out by taylor’s distinctive spiralling melodies and sampled voices.
royal-t 12 inch number one marks the rinse debut of southampton native mark taylor, aka royal-t. as part of a wave of newer producers devoting their attention to the art of the grime instrumental, the last eighteen months have found taylors sound making bold leaps into the future. a regular fixture on rinse fms weekly butterz show, and a prominent feature of elijah & skilliams explosive recent rinse:17 mix cd (including a remix for wiley, and a production on p money & blacks >boo you<), taylors production style melds the raw, rapid-fire energy of grime to the infectious flex of classic two-step. all wrapped in great, blocky hunks of melody and fragmented mc chatter, royal-t tracks are immediately distinctive.
the 12 inch finds taylor expanding his sound even further. its two tracks are subtler, their deftly swung rhythms touching on older uk garage while remaining defiantly modern at heart. >inside the ride<, for example, is a shapeshifter, bursting seamlessly from light-footed two-step skip into something darker and altogether grimier. on the flip, >cool down< has something of classic todd edwards in its dna, finding taylor slicing a female vocal into a wordless refrain over a tough 4/4 garage stomp.
regular support from logan sama, dj ez, maximum, elijah & skilliam, oneman.
london based dj and producer brackles makes his debut as a rinse artist with his new 12 inch release, released on august 8. brackles has steadily built a name for himself as a dj and producer to watch after he started djing at 15 years old, going on to be a regular at londons world famous fwd>> club night and with his own weekly show on rinse fm.
