Out now: Sid Le Rock's High & Low EP
Sid Le Rock explores the bounds of dance music with his High & Low EP, the title track is a midtempo groover that veers between electro-pop, 80s synth workouts, spacy experiments and motorik krautrock vibes - a head mix that works perfectly in Le Rock’s capable hands.
The amusingly titled ‘Judas Beast’ comes from a similar direction, but the pulsing bassline and shuffling groove orientate it closer to the dancefloor. Beautifully designed sounds and melodies float in and out while the percussion remains constantly surprising and deeply funky throughout.
‘Mosquito’ rounds out the release and is perhaps the most out and out club track - drawing on italo disco, synth pop and Le Rock’s innate knowledge of musical progression and development.
A revelation of an EP! Here you can listen yourself:
