Elliot Adamson - Dirty art


Tough Luck Records welcomes Elliot Adamson to the roster with 4 irrepressible and tripped out Techno cuts, Dirty Art by name and nature.

Young up and comer, Elliot has already been turning heads with his high quality productions and dance floor nous. He has created an EP in Dirty Art which tells a twisted tale from beginning to end, showing off his ability to make music that really grips you as well as work in the club.

Features Opens the EP with its minimalist intro, strings and popping, woody percussion bounce and play with each other until a warehouse filling, stomping kick drops and the tune never slows down. Heart strings will be tugged on…

Deprived Is churning, fiercely atmospheric and rasping with eery vocal loops. Echoing rim shots and fizzing tops provide contrast to the dubbed out vibe, the tension hints at whats to come from the rest of the EP.

Heb 12 Brings back the warehouse vibe, tough and raw, industrial but emotive its strings pull you in one direction before it smacks you in the face with its rolling sub line. Dance floors will surely rock to this.

Starlight closes the ep with a dose of melancholia, distant piano riffs play with whispers and drones. The spiralling effects and pad elements are introduced progressively. A tune that serves a fitting outro to the EP.

Taken from the Moda black site:

REbEL is a name that first came to our attention through our ties with the crew behind Leicester’s notorious Sonido parties. A sonically articulate new breed of producer, who’s happiest when doing the opposite of what all other producers are doing. His musical DNA shows traces of minimal techno, french filters, progressive house and most everything in-between – this dynamic nature being the reason we asked him to be part of the new Futurists release on Moda Black. The resulting track was a swaggering funked-out booty bomb named ‘Itchy Fingaz’, a collaboration with his Tough Luck Records partner Twon.
