Alan Fitzpatrick’s record label We Are The Brave welcomes a new jackin’ techno EP from Manchester producer Rudosa.
A prominent figure among Manchester’s new generation of techno protagonists, Rudosa aka Mark Bradbury has become a household name in the Hard Techno scene. Since the release of his career-defining cut ‘Obsolescence’ in 2019, he has developed and refined his sound, arriving at his current style, which splices ’90s and early 2000s influences with tribal-esque percussion for maximum impact at peak-time. Renowned for his seamless productions, Rudosa’s past releases have landed on labels such as Second State, Terminal M and Soma Records as well as his own ’Moments In Time’ imprint.
Rudosa latest release explores his deeper side, blending raw funk with analogue sounds and immersive atmospherics to create a perfect Hard Groove EP.
“Back In The Day” is an upbeat track with fast-flowing rhythms, jazzy pads and muffled vocals that combine to create an upbeat groove. “Naughty Pleasure” is tribal techno with a timeless ’90s influence with looped vocal phrases, offbeat synth stabs and relentless energy. “Fresh” has a hypnotic synth line and thrashing percussion layered with a punching kick drum and vocal stabs. “Iota” closes out the release with a dark and stripped-back groove with menacing synths and building suspense.
