In recent months we’ve been consistently impressed by Slow Hours, a powerhouse group comprised of six young French producers. We first premiered the group back in June with their remix of Petit Biscuit’s “Sunset Lover,” a piece that displayed Slow Hours’s stunning sound design. Today we’re excited to premiere a track from one of the six talents behind this collection of artists, Rusty Hook. The single, “Relief” feat. Truitt, appears off of Rusty Hook’s forthcoming debut EP, Romance Is Dead, Good Riddance, set to drop later this year.
Rusty Hook proves with this one that he can hold his own as a solo producer. Truitt’s effortless vocals float over layers and layers of spaced out synths, powerful bass punches and resounding percussion for the first half of the track. Most compelling about the piece is a synth breakdown throughout the second half that utilizes an infectious tension married with Truitt’s spellbinding tone. Altogether, “Relief” pulls from various genres to create a unique sound that we’re loving.If “Relief” is any sign of what to expect from Rusty Hook’s solo EP, we can’t wait for its release.
