Alice Merton – No Roots (Bruce Leroys Bootleg)
So here’s one that’s had various shapes being thrown on the commute. The production that has been coming from Brazil lately has absolutely got my attention.
Here we have a steady paced, house masterpiece, infused with enough flavours of acid, techno and minimal to make anyone groove. Years ago, I would have confidently and defiantly described music I didn’t like as squarely techno, progressive house and minimal, with arrangements that are a single chord.
Well, ladies and gentlemen, here is a an example of the type of track where I am, to put it mildly, mistaken.
Creativity and personality are the main characteristics of this Brazilian duo, formed by Marcelo Abreu and Diogo Vaille. After a long history in the Brazilian electronic music scene, these two guys got together to form the Bruce Leyroys project and we seriously, seriously hope they stick at it.
A friend said it was the hi-hat that makes it, but for me, it’s the sub-bass, progressive pace, gentle yet effective dynamics in the drops, and above all else, a first class choice of sampling. DJ tip – it’s a similar key and BPM to this.
Hats off to you sirs. Thanks for the free download.
