Ron Boss – First Row EP

Label: Colour In Music
Catalog: CIM037
Release date: 2020-03-09

Colour In Music presents the fierce “First Row” EP by newcomer Ron Boss.
The title track gives us all things we love about early chicago house, while adding a modern twist; think organ stabs, some horn samples, a quirky acid line, all bouncing on a jazz-infused drumline.
“Night Spot” stays true to the jazz theme, albeit with a much more laid back groove, incorporating gentle rhodes, mellow vibes and a moody lead solo that oozes with funk.
Portuguese producer Fragoso gives “Night Spot” the remix treatment, taking just one chord and the lead solo from the original and building an eerie dub house framework around it.
Ron Boss closes the EP with “Winter Wolf”, a playful house track that combines sombre break-beats, quirky melodies, lush string pads and (you guessed it) wolf howls! What a way to start 2020!
