It's been a while since I've gotten myself the chance to listen to Russ Chimes, and maybe that while was for the best. I don't think anything he does can top his Midnight Club Trilogy, so just maybe it was actually a good thing that I lost all contact with his music for far too many months.
Today's pair of songs wouldn't exactly amount to the talent and work put into the previously mentioned trilogy, but it's a different direction. There's more funk in his Electro House, and it pleases me.
If you're not sure you're gonna be into the sounds, it might be in your best interest to just check the teaser out. A quick summary of what's in store will come and go in less than 2 minutes.
Otherwise, let's give Tonic a listen.
The first track is probably the catchiest here. It's got a few nods in Disco's direction at the beginning, before fading into something even easier to dance to. The track is a crowd pleaser without going too far.
It switches up a bit later, it's not too monotonous. But it's just meant to be a fun track, and I'd say it succeeds.
Next up is Helix. It's probably more captivating initially, but it's also a bit more repetitive. It's decent for those live moments, right after a strong hitting song, where people want a break just to appreciate the next song better.
It's still a good track, it's got a lot of catchy moments in it, it's just a little too much for me. Don't let my judgement sway you too much.
I was slightly disappointed that it was only two tracks long. No fancy remixes, no extra tracks, it's like the good old days when a single was a single with nothing more than a B side. If not for that, I wouldn't be pleased at all right now.
Right now it's just filler music, but if you like what you've heard you might want to look into his Soundcloud or Facebook pages to expand your Russ Chimes library.
