Below Low

Matador hands the RUKUS reins to SHADED, who joins the eminent RUKUS roster with his new EP ͚Below Low͛.

With previous releases on SCI+TEC and Turbo Recordings, the past few years have played a pivotal role in securing success and longevity for SHADED aka Skyler Taugher, and this venture with RUKUS marks a new undertaking for the California-born producer. The four-tracker stomper features two originals, with remixes from Vatos Locos boss Hector, and rising talent Russell.

͚Below Low͛ delivers a master-class in stripped back, minimal groove; punctuated by pitched down vocal hooks. Wild synth passes and intertwining lead lines mingle with the signature electro funk bass lines SHADED is renowned for.

A progressive acid style, balanced with precise elemental placement, is at the core of ͚This Function͛. Perfectly pitched vocals, crisp percussion and tight mixing highlight his commitment to his craft as a musician.

Hector͛s impeccable rework of ͚Below Low͛offers a change of pace into deep, subby grooves, rolling percussion and flashes of retro ͚space-echo͛ hits, bending the original in his true distinguished flair.

Russell makes his musical debut on RUKUS with his remix of ͚This Function͛. With granularized vocals as the backdrop, this is a journey of strings, distant arpeggiators and rhythmic chords, all held together by a driving bass line.͚

Below Low͛ brings a new sound to the label, and SHADED is an exciting, and welcome addition to the RUKUS family
