Hot on the heels of last year's springy synth uplifter on Rejected 'Call Upon Me', and a crucial gravity-defying EP on 8-Bit just this month young Dutch groovesmith Franky Rizardo returns to Joris Voorn & Edwin Oosterwal's Rejected with another timeless feel-good floor shaker.
Another stately one-track strutter, 'Revoke' builds with unhurried charm. First come the dignified jacking beats, then comes the snare-rattled tornado build before a slow and low ensemble unravels into that pure state of head-locked riff mysticism that Rizardo is confidently making his signature. Light-touched but emphatic and insistent, the keys and chords shimmer and punch with a classic garage feel, spiralling and entwining until the very last beat.
File under mood-shifter: Franky and Rejected's shared passion for transition tracks and bare-bones house soul is repped to the fullest right here. Expect more from this alliance as the year progresses.
