Lauded time and time again for his “unique” style, Hector Couto launched the Roush imprint, bringing established artists and emerging talent to the genre’s hugely competitive market.
With his blend of Chicago house and old-school techno, Couto has made waves inthe dance scene for nearly a decade now. His groove-thickened vibey DJ sets have experienced at some of the biggest events in the world, while his prolific work in the studio has landed him successful releases on labels such as Hot Creations, 20/20 Vision, Get Physical, Moon Harbour & Defected, also releasing on his own label Roush, it's safe to say he has amassed an impressive resumé.
Here, Hector provides his energy fuelled interpretation of Arado's 'Rollin Hard,' upping the tempo with a series of swirling synth leads and infectious drum rolls.
"Rollin Hard" is available 26 September on Roush
Ever since his 2009 release ‘Uganda Express’ alongside Den Ishu was picked up by Desolat boss Loco Dice and released on the imprint, Arado’s prolific rise has seen him release on a host of established imprints including Remote Area, Moon Harbour and Moan, gracing the decks of Fuse (Belgium), Space (Ibiza) and Kater Blau (Berlin) on his way. Recognised internationally for his raw, percussion driven grooves, this latest offering on Roush is a perfect example and demonstration of the German’s innate ability within the studio as he provides five fresh productions to mark his debut on the label.
Title track ‘Rollin Hard’ opens up the release with a selection of tough percussive patterns and a rolling groove that features subtle vocal nuances throughout, before Roush boss Hector Couto provides his energy fuelled interpretation of the production, upping the tempo with a series of swirling synth leads and infectious drum rolls.
Next up, third track ‘Tough Detroit’ incorporates shuffling hats, engaging rhythm and punchy bass drums to reveal a bubbling club ready cut. ‘Cheatday’ firmly lays the focus on organic percussive elements throughout its seven-minute duration with a darker yet slick groove typical of the Germans deep and driving style, whilst the lighter ‘Cosmic Girl’ utilises softer, playful tones reinforced by a thundering 4/4 pattern to switch up the aesthetic. To round out the EP, ‘Fat Toni’ builds from a series of low-slung grooves and sub bass tones to reveal a straight up production aimed at the peak time.
Arado’s ‘Rollin Hard’ is out on Roush on 26th September 2016.
