Moscow born DJ & producer, Phil Gerus, has already shined this year on Futureboogie, contributing a sterling effort to our Summer Riot IV compilation last month. And so the multi-genre crossing producer returns to the fold with his own 4 track EP, brimming with raw boogie business.
Already a regular on the Sonar Kollektiv and Man Make Music labels, Gerus has also cropped up on Kerri Chandler’s Madtech label and the DhARMA imprint.
The ‘Now Is Gone’ EP features four funk fuelled cuts, from the bass slapping boogie down of opener ‘One More Button Down’ to the electro tinged ‘Better Sing It To Me First’, filled with synth sweeps, deft guitar licks, heavy claps and syncopated bass, a very authentic slice of 80s groove!
‘She Rides Shotgun’ ramps up the energy levels with a high tempo dancefloor burner, whilst the EP title track, ‘Now Is Gone’, unfurls into a robotic and choppy dub mix style cut, just waiting for the lino to go down on the floor for some serious popping moves!
A warm, authentic and lively release then from Gerus, who displays an in depth knowledge and touch for the sound and applies this is droves to all the tracks here.
