Roska's Crossed Wires EP is the long-running Rinse family member and UK dance music pioneer's follow-up to 2013's Shocking EP. His music remains a unique proposition, with its characteristic explosive cocktails of swung house percussion, melodies and sub-bass. But Crossed Wires finds him shifting further still from the raw sensibility of his early productions, settling upon gorgeous, intricately shaped forms of UK house.
On cocal-led title track 'Crossed Wires' Himal takes centre stage, the track a reflective, romantic mini-epic powered by piston-pump bass. Master Of Persuasion' epitomises the EP's mood - still propelled by his trademark percussive clatter, it blossoms to life in a swirl of fragmentary melodies, around which Rachel K Collier's vocals soar and dive.
The EP's other tracks, 'SuperLemonHaze' and 'Right Here', are instrumentals that hint subtly back towards Roska's roots in grime. During the latter, you're sent spiraling by sub-bass that arrives in body-shaking salvos, while the former is irresistible, stargazing funk - a cosmic new zone for Roska, it hints equally towards the spacegazing end of Detroit electro and the heady shuffle of broken beat.
