- Your Call EP
LeftRoom ltd | 13.04.2015
Returning to Matt Tolfrey’s Leftroom Ltd imprint this April, with his hot EP ‘Your Call’. The EP includes four tasty original tracks from the london based Russo.
Coming for the London underground electronic music scene, Sam Russo has crafted his sound around the club scene for the likes of Fabric and Lightbox. He has taken his sound to a wider audience playing around the world with dates at Berlin, Paris, Barcelona and Amsterdam. Label wise Russo has released on Vitalik, Air London, Fear of Flying and of course Leftroom Ltd.
Title cut ‘Your Call’, featured on Leftroom boss Matt Tolfrey’s fabric 81 compilation, opens up the EP and sees Russo provide a tripped out, low slung number fuelled by bubbling bass tones, sparse rhythms and a general dubbed out aesthetic. Following is ‘Research’ which ups the energy levels employing pulsating subs; glitching synth squelches and stripped back percussive lines.
Opening the latter half of the release is ‘Underwater’ and as the name would suggest delves into a near six minutes of murky synth drones, echoing percussive hits and expansive atmospherics, while closing cut ‘Work It Out’ rounds things off on an equally dark tip with swirling sweep effects, low- pitched vocal hooks and penetrating bass rolls.
Russo is setting up his own label ‘Caught London Sleeping’ so watch this space.
