Rumah // Stutter

26 Apr

Although it has only one release to its name – Happa’s Beat Of The Drum – London club night turned record label Church is looking to be an imprint to keep close tabs on, especially on the strength of this second EP, from young London producer Rumah. Although his debut from last year demonstrated an atmospheric, syncopated style of bass music, “Stutter” shows a marked progression into swung techno styles, with a weighty track full of concrete rhythms and glassy synths; “Murmur” is similarly powerful, throwing acid flecks and sunken vocals into the mix. Meanwhile, Apes & Seb Wildblood offer their own take on “Stutter”, tempering some of the original’s more ferocious attributes with some subtle dub techno elements, while James Fox refixes “Murmur” into a slinky, mid-tempo house groover, whose swelling synths offer something considerably deeper. (Juno, 2013) Grab it here.

For the next release on Audio Culture we’re happy to present Severn Beach, a new moniker for the already well established Bristolian, James Fox. On the Stitches EP Severn Beach displays an impressive level of constraint and confidence while exploring the more stripped back yet detailed, rugged and tougher territories of house and techno.
