PREMIERE – RUBA KPØ – Arengue (RKRS Recordings)

French collective RUBA KPØ follow their last EP on Sonar Kollektiv with this fresh five track offering on hot new label RKRS Recordings, which comes direct from the Riviera.

Now based between Oslo and Nice, this collective of musicians and DJs make music without limits. Laurent Garnier and Sasha were big fans of their last outing and this new EP marks something of a rebirth. After three years focusing on developing their radio show, working on their live act and exploring new ways of making music, they now really stretch their musical legs from jazz to bass to happy house to French cold wave.

This EP evokes an imagined historical meeting between ancestral Africa and the Scandinavian Vikings, and kicks off with ‘Arengue’ whose afro roots collide with a rock n roll guitar under the persistent uplift of a disco cowbell. It’s an explosive club groove with plenty of character.

Release Date – 10/12/20
