ABOUT THE RELEASE:
Rock It Science Laboratories returns with a future-focused offering appropriately entitled “Challenger,” the third release in the label’s chronological space-ship themed artist EPs. Fusing elements of UK bass, baile funk, dubstep, and old school electro, American producer Reilly Steel delivers a standout debut release. “Favela Ting” is a baile funk influenced 808 jam one might expect to emerge from Pearson Sound if he were confined to a dark Rio basement. “Boyfriend” marries pitched R&B and hip hop samples with 808s and dubby atmospherics. “Dirty South” lays cheeky vocal samples over 808s, organs, and a lead reminiscent of 80s electro-funk. Meanwhile, MikeQ provides an excellent ballroom remix of Boyfriend, and Kimba and Geoff K offer superb house remixes of Favela Ting and Dirty South, respectively.
ABOUT REILLY STEEL:
Reilly Steel is an up and coming DJ/Producer from San Francisco. With original releases forthcoming on Top Billin and Senseless Records in addition to his Rock It Science Laboratories debut and remixes out on Trouble & Bass (as the winner of the T&B remix contest) and We Do It, he is an artist to watch over the next year. Reacting against a lack of musicality in some forms of dance music but still committed to keeping his sound energetic, Steel incorporates such diverse influences as dubstep, hip hop, footwork, and house into genre-bending productions which are as full of energy as they are forward-thinking.
