The Italian producer serves up three cuts aimed fair and square at the dancefloor
Elrow Music end their summer on a high with a three-track EP from Italian production wizard Flashmob, who made these tracks while travelling in South Africa and playing at his first-ever elrow party.
First up is the title track Figital. It starts with a short intro featuring drums and the bassline, which are joined by a kick and other percussive elements. These elements form a nice looped backbeat which is then peppered with drum fills and synth riffs, and topped with a vocal that I can’t make out, but that sounds good and fits in with the party nature of the track.
The second track is titled Mind Games and starts with a kick, a hi-hat and synths, then builds with the addition of slick drums, a simple but tasty bassline and a female vocal. Again it's a tech-house party tune with buzzing synth stabs and much aural craziness going on, which is what you expect from elrow. The final track is titled Riot In Brixton, and again it kicks off with an interesting sound loop that's added to with a male, ragga-style sample repeating “riots in brixton” and some other lyrics that I can’t make out - except for one commanding you to “jack”, which fits the ethos of the song perfectly.
So there you have it: three dancefloor-ready tunes in a tech-house style that all sound great loud and will no doubt be well received by partygoers everywhere.
