Crudo EP by DJ Raff

Having released the popular ‘Voces’ on Earthly Tapes 03, DJ Raff is back on Earthly Measures for his first full EP on the label – expect Afro – Latin Tropical rhythms with a sprinkle of Acid throughout!

“Aquí Voy” is a collage of samples made up to create a tropical atmosphere with a constant bed of wiggly sub-basses that serve as the basis for the dissonant melodies of the Berimbau, the main instrumental within the track.

The title track ‘Crudo’ is a cross between Acid House and Percussive Afro-Latin rhythms. The track begins slowly with a rain of chants and percussions that give way to a storm of heavy kicks and a constant distorted 303, rounded off by soft Marimba melodies. Peak dance-floor vibes.

The Lo-fi Nostalgia Por Un Sample puts together samples of old scratch records whilst sampling vinyl that Raff used in the early 2000s to DJ in Hip Hop and Funk bands.
