Rude Audio

Dirty Remixes

Zirkus

Released: 12th November 2012 | 3 track leftfield/idm ep

Rude Audio are a south London-based collective of vocalists, musicians, producers and engineers. This remix EP runs the gamut from drum & bass, via dubbed out house to neo-classical filtered through an art-pop prism.

The EP takes Rude Audio's album, That Dirty Echo, as its starting point. The LP emerged last November and saw the group exploring new sounds that transcended electronic and dance genres. Speaking about the album, Juliet Robertson of ComfortComes insisted, This album is a sheer delight to listen to...; original and refined...; funky and chunky...; crystalline and classy...; a brilliant first album. Andy from Mojophenia commented, Wonderful angelic vocals are interspersed in a fabulous world of the sublime. Rude Audio can join the elite - The Orb, Underworld...; and Kick Out The Jam reckoned, That Dirty Echo' is sounding like Massive Attack had they grown up in Kingston, Jamaica instead of Bristol...; beautifully serene...; weirdly danceable...; haunting. One of the great house music DJs of our time, Graeme Park, asserted 'That Dirty Echo' is an absolutely delicious selection of funked up, laid back grooves. An absolute delight!.

Prior to Rude Audio, members released music under the moniker Unusual & Electric, garnering attention and praise from prominent DJs in British music and overseas. Championed by the likes of BBC radio DJs Nemone, Rob Da Bank and Gideon Coe, Rude Audio have seen their past musical endeavours played nationwide on stations such as Radio 1 and supported by DJs such as Laurent Garnier. They've also received praise from the likes of DJ, Drowned in Sound and Clash who went on to emphasise that one of their songs ...foams over with more ideas than most albums.

Rude Audio describe themselves as being rooted in the backstreets of London which is apparent in their unique fusion and approach to music. The album and EP show a love of all things Balearic while being anchored by the clean, bass-heavy elements of dubstep, drum & bass and techno. The group's mantra of 'rude' music is apparent in their unorthodox musical transitions and live instrumentation, yet the remix EP remains loyal to its cause through hazy melodies and trippy adlibs.

Rude Audio's broad musical inspiration for this remix EP stems from its members' presence within the underground scene. Through regular work as engineers for other electronic acts and organising parties and raves, Rude Audio have materialised over the years to become an elusive presence within Electronic music. Progressing from such experiences, the collective have been re-introducing themselves, enlisting a collection of new and old school digital and analogue electronic equipment for a more sophisticated take on their unique sound.
