fresh on Rumors
Guy Gerber's enchanting Rumors label welcomes Israeli groove-maker Roy Rosenfeld to the fold with a pair of his famously magical house tracks.
Born in Jerusalem but musically educated in Tel Aviv, Rosenfeld has evolved into one of house music's most prominent names. His evocative tracks are made for daydreaming, for getting lost in and dancing along to while filled with warm feelings. They have arrived on key labels like All Day I Dream and
Kompakt, while the man himself lays down similarly engaging sets of thoughtful house and techno across Europe, Asia and North and South America.
He opens up his account here with the brilliantly loose grooves of 'No Drama feat. Nadav Dagon.' It's a hypnotic house affair with a mesmeric lead synth line that feels exotic and tropical while the bubbly drums and underlapping bass enrich the whole charming affair.
On the flip side, 'What Happened To Me' is more driving and direct. The punchy house drums are overlaid with spoken word samples that drift in and out while percolating synths ride up and down the scale to bring an off-balance sense of groove. [info sheet from distr.]
