Next up on Modern Ruin is one of the most exciting artists to emerge in the past year.
Hailing from Leeds, we have Breaka with 'Express Your Groove'.
We kick off with 'Pull and Release' - a tempered footwork jungle crossover expedition peppered with ethereal female vocal chops.
A haunting mid range accompanies tuned 808s and melodies, pulling and releasing the listener into and from the track as and when intended.
Next up is 'The Mistake'. Breakbeats and a vicious stab set the tone for the rest of the track, but Breaka switches things up with a
dutty half time groove. The classic hoover bass makes a return in the latter parts of this track and a melodic hook sees 'The Mistake' out to the end.
Title track 'Express Your Groove' is next. Sampling Wish and Fonda Rae's 'Touch Me', one can be forgiven for thinking this is a tribute to Machinedrum's 'Heavy Weight',
where instead we're treated to a frenetic breakbeat expedition in what can only be described as an effective expression of groove - truly a standout.
Longtime Modern Ruin afictionado and conspirator Itoa returns with a remix of 'The Mistake', and in classic fashion, 'The Mistake' becomes a percussive
and minimal experiment, which sees out Breaka's fantastic and comprehensive release to the end.
