Rebūke seemingly came out of nowhere a little over a year ago, when we put out one of his first records, 'Jump Ship'. It also included 'The Pipe' on the B-side, which went on to be one of our biggest selling tracks of the year - even persuading Sven Vath's young son, Tiga, to dance on stage to it in a now infamous video.
He's now back on Dirtybird with another fierce EP, 'Dial Tone'. His unique blend of techno percussion, 90's era synth influences, and thundering bass feature prominently on both the title track and the flip side, 'Koto'.
Reuben 'Rebuke' Keeney follows last year's Jump Ship release on Dirtybird with this fine two-tracker. The title track is as deep as it gets for Claude Von Stroke's label, with hypnotic chords and chopped up vocal samples unravelling over a steely, forceful rhythm that resounds to bursts of white noise percussion. It's linear and hypnotic, and is sure to have a huge dance floor impact. On "Koto", Rebuke opts for a more accessible sound. Infectious melodies are underpinned by rolling snares and a pumping rhythm that features rasping percussion. It underlines once again that Keeney is a diverse, versatile producer.
