10.4 ROG – Coastal (DTW 30K)
This producer has the highest set of military stripes in my ears as if it wasn’t for him, i would never of discovered Quadron. I hadn’t heard anything from him for a while but I had to check him out and have a catchup after getting soppy and showing the ROG some gratitude for his enlightening remix of Average Fruit which put me on. I also had the remix of Multo’s track In Sum of The Sacred which between both of them and a lot of other discoveries at the time soundtracked my trials, tribulations and adventures for years to come.
One thing I can honestly say about ROG is that he has a knack for capturing and painting the scene of an adventure. The rhythm is never to the measure but shuffled to a slight lean, almost to the angle of MJ in the Billy Jean vid that seldom professionals can achieve. Coastal sets the scene of a romantic trip through the french riviera. I can picture cobbled streets, yachts, midnight and sunset strolls, expensive and rare limited vino, with plenty of star gazing… Picture being in one of your favourite video games where you can explore and unchartered parts, you know like go to the places on the screen that aren’t accessible, past the wall and door that Truman discovered was his limitation.
