Rebūke, an Irish-born producer, is shaking up the tech-house scene. The artist’s goal is to create an original sound, and lucky for us, his new EP release ‘Jump Ship’ on DIRTYBIRD accomplishes that goal.
The EP title, ‘Jump Ship‘, seems like a metaphor for the departure from the norm and an invitation for us to take the leap with him. The opening track, aptly named ‘Jump Ship’ begins with a classic house beat and building cymbals, putting the listener into a familiar state of mind. Rebūke quickly disrupts the feeling of familiarity and transports us to the jungle, with djembe-like drum sounds enveloping our senses. He plays with different rhythms and beats per minute and gives us high energy right until the end.
The second track on the EP is similar and keeps with a jungle vibe as flute-like synths push the track along. The unusual synths flutter throughout the track, flowing between intensity and softness. It’s truly unique and a pleasure to listen to. The EP invites us to be awakened to Rebūke’s style and the two tracks pack a punch.
